How To Drink Red Wine

If you are a novice when it comes to alcohol, then you might be wondering how to drink red wine. Red wine is a classic drink to have with a nice meal that every adult needs to know how to drink. Even though you might not like the taste at first, you should keep trying different varieties until you find one that you love.

  1. Ask for suggestions. If you are at a restaurant and you want to join in on the wine drinking, ask for a recommendation from the waiter. Most waiters have been trained to know which red wines go well with each dish.
  2. Don't be afraid to ask for a sample. In most restaurants, it is standard practice to offer a sample of wine. Taste the sample slowly, letting the wine stay in your mouth for a moment. Imagine how it might taste with the meal you have ordered.
  3. Do not refrigerate. If you are buying a bottle of red wine to serve with dinner, take not that you do not need to chill it. Red wines are meant to be served at room temperature with your meal.
  4. Try many different bottles. Each time you visit the supermarket, you should pick up a bottle of red wine that you have never tried before. After a few months, you will have a good idea of which wines you like and which ones are best left at the store.

Don't be afraid to try many different kinds of red wine. Most people have to develop a taste for the wine before they are able to really enjoy it. Try red wine with many different meals and take note of which ones are good together. Before long, you will have a good idea of what you like and what you don't.
