WHAT TEMPERATURE SHOULD THE WINE BE SERVED?

 

temperatura-vino

If we want fully enjoy a wine and all the qualities that it can offer must meet certain requirements, among which is serving wine at the right temperature:

White and rose wines must be served between 8 and 14 degrees:

blancos-rosados

 

Sparkling wines, cava and champagne between 6 and 8 degrees:

espumosos

Young red wines between 13 and 14 degrees and the red wines aged between 15 and 19 degrees:

tintos

We can not know how the wine was stored and treated before arriving at our house but once there we can do everything possible to keep it in top condition:

  • First we have to protect the wine from light. The ideal will be a dark room or cellar but with ventilation.
  • Holding at a constant temperature. No sudden changes and preferably fresh.
  • Away odors and smoke as these penetrate through the cork and spoil the wine.
  • It must be in a damp room. The ideal is to be in an atmosphere of 70 percent humidity.
  • Store it in a horizontal position to maintain contact with the cork. It is through him as the wine breathes.
  • Not move until consumption. It is to remain calm.
  • Consume within one year from purchase. Some red wines with aging could grow longer but when in doubt it is better not to risk losing properties.

Cheers!
