Serve white wines chilled


White wines should be served at around 10-11 ℃ or around 50-55 F. The sweeter and the richer the wine is, the colder it should be served.

The warmer you serve a white wine, the more you lose its freshness. But the colder you serve it, going down to 6-7 ℃, you stun the aromas.

If you serve a white wine too cold, all you need to do is just put your hands around the cup for a minute, for it to be slightly warmed up.
