What is the best temperature for serving wine?

It may sound simple, but most wine experts agree the single most important factor affecting our wine enjoyment is serving temperature.

Unfortunately, people often make the mistake of drinking white wines straight from the fridge (at 5°C), which is too cold and red wines at room temperature (anywhere between 20-30°C) which is too warm. Unfortunately, some restaurants serve their whites and reds at these temperatures too!

When white wine is too cold it doesn’t allow the flavours and aromatics to show to their full potential, and acidity can take over so you cannot taste the nuances of the wine. And when a red is too warm the alcohol shows too aggressively and the wine can blow out and become imbalanced.

So, what is the best temperature to serve wine?

The answer is that when it comes to serving wine, different types of wine are best enjoyed at different temperatures, ranging from 6°C to 18°C.

Ideal serving or drinking temperatures for each wine type are listed in the table below.

Ok, so should white wine and red wine be STORED or CELLARED at different temperatures too?

The answer is most definitely NO. ALL wine, regardless of its varietal, should be stored or cellared at the exact same temperature. A consistent storage temperature of 14°C will allow slow, graceful maturation and will yield great rewards, as you will enjoy your wine exactly as the wine maker intended. Ideal cellaring or storage temperatures for each wine type are also listed in the table below.
