When holidays are nearby, you might want to keep your wine cooler full of a number of bottles you have for guests and friends. Utilize the advice in this piece to select great wines that pair well with your menus.
Get familiar with your wine shop. Every liquor store is different. Every store has different prices, selections and focus. A high-end store is not a good place for someone new to start learning this hobby. Find a store with a selection that corresponds to your needs.
Windex is excellent for removing wine stains. Windex has the fighting power to eliminate wine stains immediately, much better than soap and water will. You must get to the stain immediately, however. If it is allowed time to set in, the stain becomes impossible to remove.
If you are really into it, build a wine cellar, it is worth it. You definitely need this if you plan on storing your expensive wine for a long time in a location other than your kitchen. A wine cellar gives you the ability to store wines for a long time, even years, while maintaining the wines’ qualities.
If you tend to get headaches after drinking wine, you should drink wine less often. You may be developing a histamine reaction to wine. You just need to drink moderately at all times.
You can get the most of your wine if you serve it at the correct temperature. Red wines are best when they are served at about 60 degrees. You should start with the wine being at 58 degrees and let it warm in the glass. Serve white wines near 47 degrees. A warmer white wine will have a dull taste.
Wine comes in varieties ranging from sparkling whites to deep reds. When you are purchasing wine, be prepared to know what you are looking for. You’ll have an easier time making the perfect selection now that you’ve educated yourself.
