You've been drinking red wine too warm for your entire life

People don’t know how to drink red wine.

I’m sorry, but it’s true. They always make one huge mistake.

They go to the wine store, buy a bottle, take it home, pop the cork, pour a glass, and sit back to enjoy themselves in near total ignorance of how little pleasure they’re actually extracting from that lusty Syrah or luscious Cabernet.

The problem is a basic one: the wine is too warm.

Don’t feel bad if you’ve been doing this for your entire wine-drinking existence. Almost everyone drinks red wine too warm.

So what temperature should your red wine be?

It should be between 60-65 degrees Fahrenheit. At that temperature, the flavours of the wine will be sharp and fresh, and the wine’s textures will find full expression. ... ine-2015-8
