There’s two different reasons to keeping wine cool, before serving so it’s cool while it's being stored and keeping it cool whilst your serving your wine at the dinner table. This affects both red and white wine, red wine more so whilst it's being stored and white wine whilst it's being served. Red wine should be served at room temperature while white wine should be served chilled.
Keeping white wine and rosé chilled at the dinner table is vital to enjoying it to its maximum, there’s various ways to keeping wine cool whilst serving that Wineware offer.
This traditional method of using a wine bucket is still probably the most popular, whether it be at home or in a restaurant / bar environment. Usually available in a range of materials including plastic, metal or glass, the wine cooler bucket can sit on the dinner table whilst you enjoy your meal. The bottle sits in a bucket of ice and cold water, cooling the bottle of wine.
This is a modern way of cooling wine, time convenient and keeps the wine cool for up to 2 hours. Store the cooler sleeve in the freezer until use, place over a bottle of white wine and it instantly cools the wine within 5 minutes! This is great if you have a sudden arrival of guests or you’ve forgotten to cool the wine before dinner, it also means you don’t have a to have mass storage space for a wine cooler as this sleeve will take up next to no space in the freezer!
Keeping wine cool and at the correct storage temperature is vital for longevity of the wine, you don’t want it to get too warm or too cold. Using a wine cabinet is ideal for keeping wine cool, whether it be red wine, white wine or champagne.
