CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) — The leaves are beautiful right now, the air is crisp, and there are some gorgeous evenings ahead. We know nothing goes better than a great dinner party than wine, but are you doing it right? We have a winemaker in here today, to help us channel our wine knowledge!

Jean McIlquham is the Owner of Autumn Harvest Winery joined Hello Wisconsin and she joined the show to help us hit the high points

Jean, if we’re investing in wine, what should we know about properly storing it so it doesn’t go bad?

Jean discussed the proper temperatures for storing both white and red wines. For white wines, she recommends taking it out of the refrigerator 20 minutes ahead of serving time. You can try tasting one that was pulled out right away and one that waited the recommended amount to recognize the taste difference.
