white wine

From room temperature, white wines need about an hour in the refrigerator to achieve this temperature. If the wine is too cold, it will mask the aromas and flavors making it seem simple. If the wine is too warm, it will seem fat (meaning lacking acidity and structure).

Serve at 55-58° F

Red Wine

Remember that "room temperature" referred to drafty stone castles, not modern insulated homes. Cool room temperature red wines in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes before serving. When red wines are served too warm, they become overly alcoholic and flabby. If reds are served too cold, their aromas and flavors will be muted.

Serve at 62-65° F
