Serving Wine

I am looking for advice about white wine and red wine. Which do you keep cold and which do you serve at room temp?

Sean- while it is said that red wine should be served at room temp, this is a misnomer as "room" temperatures vary. Ideally red wine should be served slightly chilled 68-72 degrees. White wine should be served chilled at 48-52 degrees.

Wine is my business. Hope this helps

White wine is served cold and red wine is served at room temperature.

I know I don't really serve wine in the best fashion so I did a quick Google search to get more wine serving tips. I needed this info, and I'm sure it will help you out, too. (10/02/2009)

White wine should be served between 49-51 degrees Fahrenheit. Red wine should be served between 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit and decanted approximately 20 minutes prior to serving into, a wine decanter. This releases the aroma of the wine. Serving red wine at room temperature is a misnomer as 'room" temperatures vary greatly, especially in the summer.


All corked wine should be stored on its side in a cool dark place, as sunlight will harm the wine. It should also be turned every month or so. Stelvin openings (screwcaps), which are now gaining popularity, do not have to be stored on its side, but should be stored out of direct sunlight.

I might add that there is a gadget called Vacupump, that you can use to pump air out of opened wine bottles, it will keep wine fresh for several days. I have seen them in Kitchen stores or maybe liquor stores. I got mine at Trader Joe's, but they do not carry them anymore. They cost about $10.00, and come with one or two rubber corks, but you can buy extra rubber corks. Make great gifts for wine drinkers, too. (04/20/2006)

When wine was served at room temp it was in a castle that was 50 degrees. No one wants warm wine. (02/18/2008)
