This Week In Grape Tips: The Best Temperatures For Serving Wines

What are the ideal temperatures to serve wines?

A general rule of thumb serves true here, the lighter the wine, the cooler it should be served!

  1. Sparkling Wine – Ideally sparkling wines should be served below 40˚F. They tend to taste better and more often than not, won’t spray all over your company when you open it.
  2. White Wines – Because these wines are a bit more aromatic their ideal serving temperature is a few degrees above refrigerator temperature. Specifically, this is between 45˚F-54˚F.
  3. Lastly, Red Winess – Because they can seem too alcoholic when warm, their ideal temperature is between 54˚F and 65˚F. Pouring them slightly cooler than room temperature can make all the difference in your taste buds enjoyment!
