What Is The Best Temperature To Serve Wine?

 Over the holidays, I found a couple bottles of Argentinian Torrontes that I decided to store in my wine fridge. At an ideal serving temperature of 40 degrees, the Torrontes was peachy and absolutely delectable–the vintage was so good that I decided to bring one of the bottles to a dinner party so I could share it with friends. However, our host put the bottle in a 32-degree food fridge the moment we arrived, and by the time we uncorked the bottle, the wine was stone cold to the touch. All of its fruity, peachy flavors disappeared, and it tasted surprisingly bland.
