Australia's Average Room Temperature Is Too Hot For Red Wines.

Red wine drinkers, prepare to have your minds blown -- when a winemaker says you should serve at 'room temperature', they're not talking about the temperature of an Australian room.

The antiquated term dates back to medieval French drawing rooms which were about 14-16˚C and the average Aussie living room is closer to 20˚C.

So basically our wine-drinking habits are the European equivalent to drinking warm beer.

For those of us who don't have a subterranean wine cellar or climate-controlled wine fridge, Australian winemaker Taylors Wines has introduced a mood ring-style temperature sensor.
