Serving Wine

From the files of Cork Cuisine

In the world of connoisseurs, there are several rules that are a must for formal wine service. These rules include the following:

  • Use the correct glasses according to the wine served.

  • Use correct table settings.

  • Do not smoke at the table.

  • Decant the wine if sediment is present. This separates the sediment from the wine and aerates it as well.

  • Serve the wine at its proper temperature.

  • Let red wines "breathe."

  • Cut the capsule (the foil just below the lip of the bottle).

  • Uncork the wine properly (do not bend the cork).

  • Pour the cork (about an ounce in a glass). This checks the wine for colour, texture, and taste, and removes any bits of broken cork out of the wine.

  • Pair food and wine to complement each other.
