  • Depends on the wine, but usually it tastes better chilled.
  • It is mostly a matter of your own personal preference. In general, it is considered better to chill white wine, and serve red wine at room temperature, but that is not carved in stone.
  • It depends completely on the type of the wine you are drinking. A merlot and other types of red wines typically is served at room temperature or a bit colder (around 65 degrees) where a pinot gricio should be chilled in the fridge for a couple hours before serving. I am sure there are some wine connoisseur out there that know the exact temperature for each type of wine but that is what I was always taught.
  • what color is it
  • Most white wines are chilled before serving and a few reds (pinots) are chilled a little bit below room temp., but most reds are served room temperature. Do whatever you and your friends like to do and don't get hung up on the rules.
  • Generally speaking.....you could drink most red wines from room temperature and you should chill white wines....
  • White and Rose yes Red wine No unless it is a light German or Hungarian Riesling and then it is probably better chilled.
  • you had to chill most white wine. There is a noteworthy exception, white wines served to make a contrast with cheese such Roquefort, Gorgonzola,....; in this case white wine had to be served at room temperature.
