Follow these basic rules to ensure that the wine you’re pouring is at its best.
The Right Temperature
Many people serve white wines too cold (making the flavors hard to taste) and red wines too warm (making the alcohol too prominent). Chill all everyday table wines as follows.
- White and rosé wines should be drunk at 48° F to 56° F, so always pull them out of the refrigerator 15 minutes before serving.
- Reds should be around 58° F to 68° F; pop them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before sipping.
- You can also try decanting young red wines to improve their flavor.
