    Love this series, Greg. Would love to hear more about some of the words that people in the wine world throw around.

    This is what I've read on this subject, and it is easy to remember--65 degrees for reds. And 55degrees for whites. If you have a basement, store your wine close to the basement floor, as a basement floor temperature generally hovers around 65 degrees. Here's another tip-If you don't want to invest in a "sometime expensive" wine thermometer, you can go on-line and purchase a bottle clip on ring thermometer, for about 2$.

    Here's another tip, that will help keep your wine at the proper temperature --I picked up a 6"x6" marble stove top trivet, from a resale shop.(I think I payed about 2$ for it) I keep it in the freezer, and when I'm ready to decant my wine, I take it out of the freezer, and set my decanter on the trivet. This keeps the wine at about 64 degrees. Your whites that you remove from the fridge, will stay cool also.
