WINE - Serving

Wine Decanting - pic by - Deb Harkness via flickr




The serving of wine is a simple process, but the following points should be noted to avoid problems.
Use a good corkscrew. There are numerous gadgets on the market, but a good one is usually the simplest.
The selection of glassware is almost endless and should be made to preference, except it should comply to the following;
·         it should hold 8 to 10 ounces easily to allow the wine to be swirled and give it "breathing room".
·         it should have a stem (this assures the heat from the hand doesn't affect the temperature of the wine).
·         it should be tulip shaped to help concentrate the bouquet of the wine at the top.
·         it should be clear glass so that the clarity and color of the wine can be checked.
NOTE: Never use the flat saucer-shaped "champagne glasses" for champagne. The bubbles and bouquet are lost too quickly and the wine is easily spilled from these. Use a tulip-shaped, or at least a flute-shaped glass for good champagne.

Red Wines and vintage Ports should be decanted before serving.
Some people like to let their wine "Breath". 
This is based on the premise that some wines will benefit from exposure to the air, and you sometimes see people swirling their wine in the glass to accomplish this. 
But, there is really no advantage to pre-opening a bottle of wine, long before a meal, in a restaurant when you are only exposing less than a square inch if its surface to the air, and for only a few minutes.
