Mistakes We Make With Wine - Wicker and Wilde Are Guilty Of Most...LOL

National White Wine Day

August 3, 2020
Wicker and Wilde

Let's start by saying Wicker and Wilde are guilty of most of these, and we don't feel guilty one iota! LOL

1.  Holding a glass by the bulb and not the stem - The warmth from your hand will unintentionally warm up the wine.

2.  Damaging the cork when you try to remove it so you push bits of cork into the wine

3.  Mispronouncing the name of a wine you're ordering 

4.  Serving white wine with red meat - years ago Rebecca Wilde interviewed a wine expert who said that's not a "thing" anymore.  She said to drink the wine you want, when you want.

5.  Filling a wine glass to the very top - you might spill it....hahaha

6.  Putting ice cubes in wine

7.  Adding lemonade or Coke to wine to water it down - we've heard of putting tonic or seltzer in wine but Coke?

8.  Drinking straight out of the bottle

9.  Trying to use a corkscrew on a twist-off cap

10.  Pretending you know sophisticated terms to describe how a wine tastes

Happy National White Wine Day - drink up!
