 In addition, serving wine is an art! Indeed, to better appreciate a great vintage, it is advisable to pour the drink till the gob. Thus, it will be easier to rotate your red wine glasses to smell the aromas. Moreover, the best wines are best appreciated at a temperature around 14 ° Celsius for red wine and about 8 ° for white wine.
