03 Jul Tips About Wine
It’s great when you find wines that you love! But questions might come along with your discoveries. Questions like how to store it or how to serve it, amongst others. So let’s talk about a few tips to help you figure out the answers to these questions.
Choosing a wine from a store can be a daunting task if you don’t know what you’re after. Consider your dinner menu or the general setting you are getting the wine for. Make sure you ask questions to the wine clerk. Ask if wines are sweet, what they’ll pair with, and what value wines are good choices.
If you are not sure about a wine to order when going out to dinner, try asking for a sample. If the bottle is already open, most of the time this won’t be an issue. If you have a wine you already know you’d like to enjoy with dinner, call the restaurant and see what their corkage policy is. In some cases, you may be able to bring your own favorite bottle with you. This will not only save you money, but it will ensure that you have exactly the wine you want to pair with your dinner.
When storing your wine it is important to remember to keep it out of direct sunlight. Storing your bottles away from heat or sunlight will help preserve your wine and its flavors. If you store a lot of wine you may consider a wine fridge for the perfect solution. Don’t store your wine in places like the top of your fridge where heat and vibrations can affect your bottle. Always be sure to refrigerate your bottles after you open them, as well. This helps ensure your wine will stay fresh longer.
Hopefully, these tips will help you when considering your wine or wine storage solutions. Many people don’t know you can bring your own wine to certain restaurants so make sure to ask in the future. The biggest thing to remember is to always ask questions. It is the best way to learn and you will discover new things and new wines easier if you do.
