From the Cellar to the Table: Tricks for Bringing Wine to Perfect Service Temperature

It’s 10:30 AM on a Tuesday and I have just finished my 4th consultation and explanation of the differences between storage and service temperature for wine. To be clear, the majority of wine collectors are looking for a wine cellar environment to store their wines to age gracefully and protect from volatile situations.

So along comes the question I often hear: “Do I need a two- temperature unit to store my reds and whites?” If your intentions are to store your wines for aging and protection, you need only a one- temperature unit. Ideally, all wines (reds, whites, champagne and ports) best store at temperatures between 50-60 degrees.
