Wines have long been the most favourable drink that many prefer toasting to on several occasions. But more to your sparkling champagne or your glass of red, there is a multitude of interesting things to discover and love about wine. Here are 15 tips that you should remember if you want to enjoy your bottle more.
Ever experienced those times where you just accidentally broke your wine bottle cork? You can spare yourself the agony of pushing the cork in the bottle and simply pour the wine in another container. If a floating cork inside the bottle keeps getting in the way, you can simply use a long and slender instrument, like a skewer, to push it out of the way.
How to warm up a bottle of red wine
An easy way to warm a bottle of red wine to room temperature is to warm a glass or any container with hot water, wipe it dry and transfer your wine.
Drink at room temperature
If you really want to enjoy the taste of the wine, it is best that you drink it in room temperature. If you left your bottle of wine in the fridge for quite some time now, you can pour your wine into your glass and hold the bowl instead of the stem. Your body temperature helps heat up the wine.
Know safe limits
There is a lot of good things about wine, but these can be achieved best when you also set your limits. Three or more drinks for men and two or more drinks for women in a day would be considered as too much. Going just below that will help you reap its benefits.
Never fill your glass to the brim
It is not advisable to fully fill up a glass of wine. It is best that you pour in at least 1/3 of the way. This gives you enough room to swirl the wine allowing it to develop the taste better.
