Wine Service Temperatures
White wine is suitable to go right from the refrigerator or cooler
to the table. The suggested serving temperature is 10 degrees Celsius
or 50 degrees fahrenheit. However, a fuller bodied white Burgundy
or Margault-Montrachet should be served a few degrees warmer.
Red wines are always served at room temperature, except for Beaujolais.
Wine makers rush to bottle that beautiful wine each November and
they recommend that it be served chilled, about 10 degrees Celsius
or 50 degrees fahrenheit.
Madeira, sherry and port is always served cold, 6 degrees Celsius
or 42 degrees fahrenheit.
