As winter approaches temperatures drop, often you open a red wine to find that it is too cold. Esteemed wine expert, Bob Campbell MW advises stick it in the microwave! Bob told Hyden Donnell for the Spinoff, that he often warms his wine in a microwave.
Campbell outlined his wine-microwaving routine. My routine is to take wine from my cellar... pour myself a glass of red in a stemless glass. Taste it, say yup, that is too cold. Put it in the microwave for 10 seconds. If it's too warm, add a bit more cold wine to it. If it's too cold, give it another second or two until it's absolutely bang on, he said.
He claimed to have conducted an experiment where he microwaved half a bottle of wine, left the other half of the same bottle un-microwaved, then ran tests to see whether microwaved wine deteriorated quicker. It didn't, he concluded!
