So, what is the ideal temperature for white wine? Don't worry; you don't need to be a master sommelier to learn the proper temperature for different types of white wine.

The ideal temperature of white wine

When determining the ideal temperature of different wines, many factors will play a role-wine body, acidity, weight, and even whether it passes through oak barrels, will have an impact, and is affected by the temperature is too high or too low.

Therefore, generally speaking, although all white wines should be refrigerated in general, the perfect temperature helps to highlight the acidity and fruitiness of the wine. If you enjoy a bottle of white wine on your own, you may not care about reaching the perfect temperature. However, if you plan to pair wine and food together, you will definitely want the proper service to get a more valuable dining experience.

Method for quickly cooling liquor

You may have noticed the quick cooling of white wine mentioned above. Rather than putting a bottle of white wine in the refrigerator for several days until it is ready to serve, and then let it warm up to a suitable temperature, it is better to put it in the cellar (even just on your shelf or wine rack), and then Depending on the type of wine, keep it in the refrigerator for 2-2.5 hours.

If you do not have a few hours of free time, you can put the bottle in the refrigerator for 20-25 minutes. You may have heard that putting a wine bottle in a refrigerator with a wet towel can help speed up the refrigeration process, but doing so actually insulates the wine bottle and makes it take longer to reach the perfect temperature! Be sure to take the bottle out of the refrigerator within the prescribed time. Leaving it for too long may cause the bottle to explode! Our company provides custom wine bottles wholesale.

Another method is to place a bottle of white wine in an ice bath in a sink or ice bucket. Be sure to soak the bottle completely in ice, otherwise, it will not cool evenly. If only the bottom or half of the bottle is immersed in ice, the first cup may still be too warm when poured.

As an alternative, you can add some grapes to the freezer instead of ice. Frozen grapes can prevent the wine from being diluted with water when the ice melts, which is fun and refreshing to eat!

Note: You can also buy metal tartar, you put it in the refrigerator, and then add a glass of wine to cool without diluting it.

Know when white wine reaches the right temperature

So the time limit of the various cooling methods mentioned above is a good general rule, but how do you ensure that your different wines have reached the ideal perfect temperature?

Of course, you can insert a thermometer in the bottle at any time, but this also requires opening the bottle. If the temperature of the wine is not suitable, it is difficult to put the opened bottle back into the refrigerator or refrigerator.

You can also use your intuition to touch, which may require several rounds of trial and error, but in the end, you should have the know-how to judge the temperature "feel appropriate"

A better idea, if you really want to enjoy your white wine continuously without too much trouble and worry about getting the bottle to the ideal temperature, invest in a wine cooler.
