What’s the big deal about storing a wine at a certain temperature? Simply put, is a perishable good. Storing a fine wine at 100 degrees will cause it to loose its flavour, while storing it a 0 degrees will cause as much damage. The trick with wine is to store it at a stable, ideal temperature, and then to serve it at a temperature which best shows off its personal characteristics.

Most of the enjoyment that comes from drinking wine involves its aroma. Taste only has four aspects-sweet, sour, salty, acid. The nose does the rest. Vapors are created as wine warms up, so the wine needs to be a few degrees below its ideal drinking temperature for this to work
