How quickly does wine spoil if its above 75 degrees?

I am storing a lot of wine for my upcoming wedding in my basement. The temperature was around 68 degrees but in the last week its climbed to 78 degrees. I'm worried that the wine will all spoil by the end of September. I put a big box fan in the basement and I'm hoping that causes the wine to cool slightly (though, that hasn't made much of an improvement....). Will the wine be ok for the next 3 months? If not, does anyone have ideas as to how I can lower the temperature (without building a wine cellar!). Thanks!
