What is the correct temperature when serving wine? 

Wine temperature greatly impacts taste and bouquet by ensuring that the wine displays a balance of aroma, flavor, structure, and alcohol. 

The higher the ambient temperature, the faster the flavor compounds and alcohol will evaporate from wine. So to keep the bouquet of the wine at its peak, serve red wine at between 60 and 65 degrees. 

Freshness is the hallmark of white wine. Even an acidic white wine tastes less sour when it’s served very cold. Instead, it’s perceived as refreshing.

Naturally, the temperature of white wines depends on the age and body of the wine. The perfect range is between 46 and 57 degrees Fahrenheit.
A properly selected wine cooler will help you enjoy a glass of wine.
