How to tell if your old bottle of wine is still good While you can't account for the storage temperature of a bottle before you've gotten your paws on it, you can likely control things from there on out. So if your wine fridge putters out on you during say, an Arizona summer, without you realizing it for [...]

The sommeliers of the New York restaurants in Daniel Boulud’s Dinex Group recently put on a dinner to debunk some commonly held wine myths. Given the number of erroneous beliefs about wine that persist, this could have been an epic feast lasting for weeks. But Daniel Johnnes , Dinex’s wine director, and four of his sommeliers mercifully held the line to five courses, each served with two wines (or a wine and a beer, in one case) meant to counter enduring shibboleths. I was drawn to this dinner because, as with anyone who writes or talks about wine regularly, I am intimately familiar with all sorts of widely held yet mistaken notions. Sweet white wines ranging from barely sweet to luscious can be glorious with food.
Given the temperature variations of any given day, week or month, the weather, and what temperature you keep your home and your refrigerator, a discussion of temperature is in order as concerns serving wine. The answer depends upon whether you are serving a white wine, a red wine or a rosé. The higher the ambient temperature (the temperature of the surrounding environment, whether indoors or outside), the faster the flavor compounds and alcohol will evaporate from wine. So to keep the bouquet of the wine at its peak, serve red wine at between 60 and 65 degrees. The alcohol starts to evaporate at 68 degrees so a wine served above that temperature will eventually taste thin and out of balance. There is tannin in all red wines, but it does not overtly stand out when red wine is served at the correct temperature.
There’s nothing quite like the heat of an Aussie summer. The sweltering temperatures see many of us swapping turkey - that northern hemisphere Christmas staple - with seafood, and replacing red wine for chilled glasses of white.But as it turns out, Aussies wanting a cool alcoholic beverage this season shouldn’t abandon shiraz or pinot noir as an option – in fact, wine experts are advising us to continue drinking red wine, but to drink it cold.“They say red wine should be served at room...
The bottle:Hückfest wine cooler, $12 for a two-pack, $24 for a four-pack.The back story: Remember wine coolers? They were a sweet-tasting alternative to beer — or the equivalent to alcoholic soda — that became all the rage a few decades ago. Today, they’ve largely disappeared from store shelves, though some might argue there’s an equivalent in the new generation of “alcopop” beverages — think Mike’s Hard Lemonade or Bud Light Lime-a-Rita or even boozy seltzer.But in the last couple of years,...
