Before I start talking about the subject of wine and the relation to the temperature to serve it on I have to admit that I have never been too crazy about wine.
I am more a beer drinker and maybe the reason for that is that I always thought of wine as a drink for women and beer more as a drink for men.
Recently I have become more of a wine drinker. The reason is that I figured out that I most of the time drank my wine at the wrong temperature.
I have a friend, and he is more of a wine expert, and although he always had a beer cold for me when we had dinner together he kept pushing me to try wine with the meals our families had together.
After a long time, I decided to give in and starting to drink more wine and I have to be honest and mention here that I started to like it more and more.
I will never be an expert and I found out that you do not have to be one to enjoy a good glass of wine.
My friend has a website and was actually the on that told me to start this blog you are reading now about food in general.
He showed me that it makes a huge difference in taste when you serve wine at the right temperature and he even let me taste the difference to convince me.
He keeps his wine chilled in a wine refrigerator and wrote about them on his website. He chose a u-line as a brand and wrote a whole Uline wine cooler review on his website.
Since he is the expert I assume that he knows what he is talking about and I believe him when he mentioned and explained to me why he preferred a U-line. I am not ready to have my own wine fridge but am in the process of finding a cooler just for one bottle.
The reason is that besides that I am starting to enjoy wine more, in general, I also found, or actually new already for years, that wine has some great health benefits.
One of the benefits that I personally experienced is that when I drink a glass of wine at night I sleep better. According to the Mayo Clinic the resveratrol in wine, which comes from the fermented skin, is a very healthy ingredient in wine.
I am not sure if I will ever become a wine lover like some of my friends, but I am enjoying a good glass of wine more and more.
I still like my nice cold beer but now I know that wine has to be served at the right temperature to give it its optimal flavor I have changed my mind that wine is more for women than for men.
