How do you keep your wine at serving temperature?


I’m fortunate that I now finally have a wine cabinet to store my wines for aging, however that is obviously set at 55F, quite below the serving temperature of Bordeaux of ~63F.

My question is, given I often want to decant a wine and then leave it on the counter for a couple of hours, it will be at ~72F room temperature before I even get to it.

What do you guys use to keep your wine at the right serving temperature, when it might be 2 hours before the first glass, and then the rest drunk over the next 4 hours of an evening?

Any tips ? Or do you just stick it in the fridge for 15 mins?

Keep it in the cellar obviously. But if you can’t do that, stick it in the fridge before serving.


I actually just walk it down to the cellar for 20 mins. More tolerant of forgetfulness.
