Wine Tasting Rules & Etiquette Here are some very important tips in preparation for wine tasting and serving: First, keep in mind that if you will be tasting whites and reds, always start with the white wines first. Then move to the reds. Second, always start with the drier wines, moving along to the sweeter ones subsequently. In addition, it’s best to start with lighter wines first and work your way up to the heavier bodied wines. The age of the wine is also pertinent: start with the younger wines and move on to the aged wines as you go. Wines should be served at the appropriate temperature. The following chart will guide you in selecting the most pleasurable tasting temperature for your specific varietal: Dry, aged red wine 68-74 Degrees °F Rosés, light reds like Gamay Beaujolais, Grignolio, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and fruity dry wines from Bordeaux (Sauvignon Blanc),.
