Drinking wine can be a wonderful experience. Perhaps the most important thing to bear in mind when drinking fine wine is that it’s a living thing that changes over time. The best wines usually go through several phases and reveal their true nature with age.

See that you have appropriately prepped your wine so that it is the proper temperature for drinking. There are varying opinions for what the temperature should be but as a rule of thumb: if it is white, chill the bottle for a few hours before drinking, if it is red serve at room temperature.
