In addition, before using red wine, you need to open the bottle for about 15-30 minutes so that the wine is "breathed", meaning that it works with oxygen, allowing the alcohol to fly less.

- For a table with a variety of wines, the priority order will be white wine served before red wine, sour wine served before sweet wine, normal wine before good wine. Champagne used at the beginning of the party. Spirits should not be taken in the first place because it can affect taste, as well as being drunk when you are hungry.

However, in luxury restaurants, there are some installation principles you should also refer to: glass of red wine is usually placed on the left side of the white wine glass. If the whole party uses only one wine, the glass of wine is placed on the right side of the drinking glass. Do not put more than 4 cups on a table.

Methods of preservation:

- Contrary to the common belief that wine is displayed in a glass case, in fact, wine experts recommend that you leave the bottle horizontal, allowing the wine to come into contact with the cork (with oak stopper). . This will keep the button moist. If the button is dry, it will shrink and allow air to enter the bottle, seriously affecting the taste of the wine.

- The most ideal temperature to preserve wine is about 15-17 degrees Celsius, so it is a humid, dark place, avoiding sunlight because it can cause the temperature to warm up and affect the taste of wine.

- Wine should be best used 3-4 hours after opening, if left for a long time, when alcohol works with the air, the taste will no longer meet the standard.
