I’ve always heard that red wine should be served at room temperature, but I guess heard wrong. According to The Daily Mail,
Joe Fattorini of the TV program “The Wine Show” says red wine should be chilled briefly, and white wine should be left to warm up before consuming. He says wine drinkers should follow the 20:20 rule to get the ideal glass of wine, which says: put red wine in the fridge 20 minutes before serving, and take white wine out of the fridge 20 minutes before serving.
Also important to know: store your wines somewhere cool and dark, as varying temperatures can ruin them.
