Wine Service Temperatures: How to Ensure Your Wine Is at Its Best

Though wine storage temperatures (53-57°F) are important, it’s just as important to take note of the temperature at which you enjoy your wine, its service temperature. Too often people drink white wines too cold and red wines too warm, limiting the wine’s capacity for enjoyment. A white that is too cold will be flavorless and a red that’s too warm is often quite flabby and alcoholic. You may be aware that reds are sipped at a warmer temperature than whites, but do you know exactly what temperature that is?

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.
