Using the 20/20 Rule for your Wine

What is the 20/20 Rule?

If you drink wine, you probably know about chilling white wine. More sophisticated wine drinkers might even know to chill red wines. However very few wine connoisseurs know about the 20/20 rule.

In order to showcase it’s best features, wine must be served at the correct temperature. Serving wine at the wrong temperature can make it taste murky and off-color, ruining what would otherwise have been a perfect bottle. While white and red wines require different serving temperatures, they should both be cooled appropriately.

The 20/20 rule is this: for white wines, bubbles, and rose, take your wine out of the fridge 20 minutes before serving. For red wines, put them in the freezer for 20 minutes before serving. This will help achieve the perfect tasting temperature for each type of wine. So next time you are hosting a party, or venues for weddings, just think 20/20.

In 2010 there were nearly 7,000 wineries in the United States. That number has continued to grow year over year for the last decade. As the number of wineries grows, it is important to know what each type of winery offers.

Some wineries are strictly for wine companies to grow and culture wine. Others can be used as venues for weddings, such as RoxyAnn Winery. One of the advantages of using a winery as venues for weddings is that it takes the pressure of presenting the perfect wine to your guests off of you.
