Guide to wine serving temperature

The wine serving temperature is an essential aspect to appreciate all the characteristics of a wine in the right way

When it comes to serving temperature, it is not that easy as it seems. If it’s too hot the emphasis will be on the alcohol, covering the other characteristics. If it’s too cold, the aromas will be muted and, in case of red wines, the tannins may seem harsh.

Often, white wines are served straight out of a fridge while reds are opened at a toasty room temperature, neither of which are ideal. The right temperature depends on the grape variety, aging process and the wine category. Here we grouped some general rules, so now you can enjoy your wine at its best!
