Serving Wine

Red wines need glasses with a larger bowl e.g. a Bordeaux because they need breathing room to release their powerful aroma. They should also be served cool at 60°F to 70°F (15.5°C to 21°C) for the best taste.

White wines, or the hybrid Rose wines, are best served in smaller glasses with a narrower bowl resembling a "U". This helps retain its cooler ideal serving temperature of 50°F to 60°F (10°C to 15.5°C) while still allowing room for its floral aromas to be released.

Finally, Champagne and other variants of sparkling wine are best served in the narrowest type of wine glass, the flute, in order to help bubbles last longer. This type of wine is also best served ice cold at 40°F to 50°F (4.4°C to 10°C).
