Wine Tips

  • Wine is best stored at temperatures between 50º – 60ºF.
  • Wine is best stored on its side, to keep the cork moist.
  • Red wine should be served at room temperature.
  • White and Sparkling wines should be chilled for several hours.
  • A larger round shaped bowl on your stem is best for red and heavier wines.
  • A taller, slim profile is best suited for white and lighter wines.
  • Sparkling wines and champagnes are best served in taller, narrow flute stem.
  • Make sure any wine glass you utilize is rinsed and dried with a clean cloth.
  • Most wine glasses should be filled about 1/3 of the bowl.
  • To keep from dripping when pouring, lift the bottle from the glass and turn slightly to the right as you pull away from the glass.
  • It is best to serve white wines with light foods and red wines with full-bodied foods.
  • Red and white wines, when recorked, can last in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
  • The average wine bottle (750ml) serves approximately 5 glasses of wine.
