Wine question.

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by kawboy, Feb 14, 2016.

  1. I am making the wife a rib roast for tonight. We are not wine drinkers, but the wife was given a bottle of red wine by someone on her route this Christmas. I'm going to serve it with the roast tonight (if I can get it open without a corkscrew). My question is, should it be chilled or room temperature?

    Thank you.

    Give us a pic,most reds are served at room temp,at least ones worth drinking! Good luck trying to open it,maybe see if a neighbor has a wine key.

    Use a large screw and a pair of pliers. ;)

    I like it chilled.

    Never seen the brand before but if it's free it's for me!

    Ya know I can't believe I am telling on myself but..... I have used an ice pick thru the cork then pushed it back in the bottle. It keeps floating into the bottle neck while pouring but you can work it out. I won't bore you with the story but it involved a pretty girl, a "fishing trip", a fishing boat, the tide going out and a sandbar over night. Glad she was in college and Daddy didn't know, you get married over that kinda stuff around here.

    A wall and a blanket is all you need to open a wine bottle.

    Is it a cork, or a twist off?  Wanna impress, try sabreing it off!

    If it's cold outside you can go higher than room temp: mulled wine. Cinnamon, clove, pepper, sugar.
     
  14. I think I could handle a twist off💪.
     
  15. Got the cork out, still not wine drinkers😛.
