TO get the best out of your wine, connoisseurs say that temperature impacts on the taste and smell. It has a huge effect on the actual taste of the wine and can enhance or hide some of the aromas Therefore, serving your wine at the right temperature will achieve the best possible taste. This is because wine is perishable; so, storing it at extreme temperatures will damage it. 

  These are what they say. Drinking white wine at room temperature is not a pleasant experience. When the wine is too warm, the fruity taste and freshness disappear. 

  White wine should be served at a temperature range of 9 to 13 degrees Celsius. To cool the wine, keep it in the fridge for just a few hours before serving.

  Sparkling wine
 is better served cold, at a temperature of 5 to 6 degrees Celsius. 

  The ideal serving temperature for red wines is around 14 to 18 degrees Celsius. It is recommended that red wine should be placed in the fridge for about half an hour before serving. For quicker results, it can be put in the freezer for just 15 minutes. After opening and either decanting or pouring the first glasses, just as with white wine, it can be left on the table to slowly warm.
