It's five o'clock somewhere.
Ahh. The part you've been waiting for. The end of a long day. The start of a delicious dinner. It's time to serve the wine.
It doesn't take a set of instructions to enjoy wine. But because wine is an art, there's an art to serving it—and the difference is in the details.
From pouring to tasting.
The right temperature can mean the difference between "so-so" and "wow!" You don't need to be exact, just follow our temperature guide. Some wines need a little breathing room before you pour. What you're drinking out of is almost as important as what you’re drinking. Get tips on tasting and you’re ready to celebrate.
Your guests arrive for a casual summer dinner party. It's a summer day, so you offer them a crisp, cool Pinot Grigio, much to their appreciation, while you finish up the salads and heat up the grill.
Over a delicious meal of pasta and grilled pizza, you provide a selection of wines to complement the flavors, including Italian Chianti, fruity red Zinfandel, and snappy Vernaccia. You share interesting tidbits with your guests about the wines they’re drinking, making their experience more exciting and memorable.
Finally, you linger over dessert with conversation—encouraging, sweet Moscato—stretching the enjoyment of excellent company and excellent wine on into the night.
YOU are an excellent host and you're definitely ready to entertain with wine like an expert.
