Temperatures to Serve Wine

We're Glad To See You're Back 2 - Retro Ad Art Banner - stock vector
It's your lucky Friday! It's a double posting today! But hey, let's get straight to the point! After all, it's Friday!!

I have been given lots of questions recently, especially on my
Yourwinegirl Fan Page about what are the ideal temperatures at which to serve wines. Now, as some of you may have noticed, there are many different types of wines out there. I hope to touch on every type that I can on my blog, but that also means that there are different temperatures to serve these wines at in order to be able to taste and enjoy your wines to their full potential.

Below, I have included a chart that I was given in school, that from time to time I need to reference to. On top of this information, a good rule of thumb for serving wines:
REDS: Chill 15 minutes before serving (Yes, you can chill red wines... to actually have them at room temperature is a little too warm for most red wines)
WHITES: Let it stand/Remove from refrigerator 15 minutes before serving

Service Temperatures:

Glasses with wine - stock vector
Very Cold
39-43°F
Sparkling and sweet white wines 

Cold
43-50°F
Dry white wines, ros├ęs, and top quality Champagne

Cellar Temperature
55-57°F
Top Quality Chardonnay and light reds

Just Below Room Temperature
57-64°F  - Full bodied Reds


Hope you guys find this chart a little handy dandy and answers at least some of your questions. :) If you have any more questions, please feel free to leave comments or send me a message or comment on my fan page: Yourwinegirl

Have a great weekend everybody!!! Cheers!!
