Ensure your glass of wine
is perfect every time
Serving wine at the correct temperature can really help to ensure you’re enjoying the complex aromas and flavours at their best. Generally white wines are best when chilled and red wines are better at room temperature, however, as with many other aspects in the world of wine, it can often be a matter of personal taste.
Hopefully, the handy tips in our video will inspire you to start experimenting!
With a background in the restaurant trade in France and years of experience as a head sommelier, Stéphane is the ideal guide to show you how to serve a perfect glass of wine.
"When serving red and fortified wine I make sure they are around room temperature (about 18°C). White, rosé and sparkling wine should be chilled in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving (8-10°C). Light bodied reds and dry sherry may also be chilled slightly."
