Amybabs thank you so much for your response. I can tell you take pride in your wine specialty. Hopefully one day I can know even a small percent of what you do. Thank you!
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 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.
