1. Avoiding white wine in the winter Since white wine is best served chilled, it’s easy to associate it with hot, sunny days. But there’s no reason to ditch the white wine during the cold seasons. Opt for full-bodied, rich winter, white wines, like an oaky Chardonnay.
2. Not buying screw tops There used to be a time when a screw top meant cheap wine. These days though, winemakers are turning away from traditional corks in favor of screw bottles. After all, many red and white wines are meant to be opened at a young.
3. Holding the glass wrong Yes, there’s actually a correct way to hold a wine glass, and it’s not only for show. Instead of wrapping your hand around the bowl of the glass, grip the base of the stem between your thumb and pointer finger. This will prevent your hand from transferring heat to your wine, thus making the wine stay cooler for longer.
