If you get wine on a beloved shirt, get some Windex. Windex is more effective than water and soap when it comes to eradicating wine stains. Attack the stain as soon as you can, because if you wait too long, the stain will set in.
You can make a delicious sauce for beef with a red wine. To do this, simply add a bit of butter to your red wine. The sauce will thicken as it simmers, and most of the alcohol will cook out as well. Then, lightly drizzle over the beef entree.
To make the most of each glass of wine, make sure you serve it up at its optimum temperature. It is best to serve a red wine at 60 degrees. Chill your wine to 58 degrees first. White wine should be served at approximately 47 degrees. White wines that are too warm often lose their crisp flavor.
Keep whites and reds in their proper glasses. A narrow glass is perfect for whites, keeping warm air away from the drink. Red wine likes air and a wide glass. This allows for better airflow and allows the wine to warm, which brings out the flavor.
