Art of tasting

Owning great wines in your cellar is not enough, you also need to know how to serve them.
Temperature is an essential element around 53-57°F for the white and 55-59°F for the red. And if you don't have the right tasting glass which will amplify the wine's aromas, you may considerably reduce your tasting pleasure.
A great glass gives a large ventilation surface to the wine and a tightening neck, which allow the nose to grasp more casily the richness and the complexity of a great wine.
