All wine is stored at the same temperature, regardless of its color. But reds and whites are consumed at quite different temperatures. Many people make the mistake of drinking white wines too cold and red wines too warm, limiting how much you can enjoy the wine. A white that’s too cold will be flat and flavorless and a red that’s too warm is often flabby and alcoholic. Please refer to the table below for a specific wine’s best serving temperature.

When you have leftover wine in the bottle, preservation is key. As wine comes into contact with air, it can quickly spoil and lose its quality. To slow down that process, use a quick vacuum pump to suck out the excess air. The less air in the bottle, the longer the wine will last in terms of quality.

Wine pumps are available for purchase at our winery. Get yours today!

Most wine – about 95% – is meant to be enjoyed, if not shortly after purchase, then within 12 to 18 months of the vintage date. Some wine can improve in flavour and value with age, but it can also rapidly deteriorate if kept in poor conditions. The three major factors that have the most impact on a wine’s condition are light, humidity and temperature.

Cabernet Sauvignon: With its tannins, this is among the best-aging wines out there. Bottles will keep for 7-10 years.

Pinot Noir: Consume within 5 years.

Merlot: Keep no more than 3-5 years.

Zinfandel: This red wine will last for 2-5 years. You would typically age red wine, whereas white do not have tannins to keep for more than 18 months.

Age-worthy whites

Chardonnay: 2-3 years.  Better ones can keep for 5-7 years.

Riesling: Generally, 3-5 years, though the very best can have a longer lifespan.

Sauvignon Blanc: Drink within 18 months to 2 years at the latest.

 Pinot Grigio: Enjoy within 1-2 years.
