Wine Talk: Wine Myths Debunked

There are certain myths about wine that have traveled unquestioned for as long as anyone can remember – but not all of them are founded in truth. Before your next wine tasting soirée, brush up on your sommelier skills. Our wine myth guide will surprise your guests, while showcasing your wine prowess.

Myth #1:
Wine should be kept on the kitchen counter.
Keeping a Ménage à Trois wine bottle within arm’s reach from the stove seems to make sense. But the best place to store your wine is away from light, heat, and vibration. Relocate your wine rack to a cool, dark part of your home like a pantry, closet, or basement.

Myth #2:
Red wine should be served at room temperature.
Temperature is key when it comes to wine! Red wines that are served straight from the counter top are about 10° too warm. Before serving, give the bottle 10 or 15 minutes to chill out in the fridge.

Myth #3:
White wine should be kept ice cold.
Take your bottle of white out of the fridge about 20 minutes before you’re ready to pop the cork. Your vino will have enough time to make its way to the ideal degree, where flavors are unmasked. Wine myth trivia is a clever conversation starter, and endless fun game at your any Ménage a Trois wine-party.
