To decant your wine of choice, simply pour the wine from its bottle into your decanting vessel (it can be a fancy one, or any empty glass container really); then, let it sit there and come in contact with oxygen for 15 to 20 minutes. The flavors and aromas should evolve in the time before you drink it!

Looking to avoid the hangover? An organic bottle of red might be the answer. This biodynamic vineyard takes a hands-off approach, allowing nature to take its course. The result is an aromatic wine, with lashings of spice, juicy red cherry and a touch of chocolate.

Though certainly not cheap, our winning pinot noir is intense and full-bodied. The South African wine is a perfect pairing for lighter meat dishes such as roast chicken, so we're justifying the higher price tag for the Easter weekend. Aged in new French oak barrels, look out for notes of vanilla, plum, sweet cedar and a little smoke.

If you're catering for a crowd, a case of wine is the way to go. Elegant and soft, our panel loved this natural-tasting wine that offers sweet spice, red cherry and a little tobacco. Perfect for a dinner party, it pairs particularly well with the cheese board.

Villa Maria is a big name in the world of New Zealand wine, and this easy drinking pinot noir impressed the panel with red berries and a hint of mushroom. Perfect with lamb, you could also serve this one slightly cooler on warmer days.

Pinot noir benefits from a larger bowl, allowing the aromatic wine to fully develop. These would make a welcome addition to the Easter table this year, or an excellent gift for the pinot noir fan in your life.

A perfect light red wine that won't overwhelm your party fare, this 100% Pinot Noir is a great bargain! It's lively and fresh with raspberry notes up front, finishing with bitter chocolate and herbs. It also has an easy-to-open screw top.

A big wine for a small price, this Portuguese red blend is rich, silky, and full of blackberry and spice. Most people who drink red wine think of themselves as having a preference for full-bodied styles, so if you only have one red to serve, this is a great choice.

Don't forget to have ice, ice buckets, and a corkscrew. And to take it to the next level, a bar menu can be a great addition. Adding a little description of each wine to the menu will help guests get a better idea of what they're getting if they haven't had any of the wines before.

White: If you only have one white wine, it should be dry, but not too acidic or unusual. Chardonnay from California and Pinot Grigio from Italy are both excellent choices. People often prefer wines that they are already familiar with, so if you have a limited number of options, you should avoid wines that are obscure or unusual in their flavor.

Sweet wine: Depending on the group of guests, you might like to have a sweeter option on hand as some people do not enjoy dry wine. A few possibilities here include Moscato from Italy or Riesling from Germany.

Since there are 4 glasses of wine in a bottle, this brings us back to the conclusion that if each of your guests consumes one glass of wine per hour you will need 6 bottles total (24 glasses). Depending on their predicted tastes, you can then decide to buy red, white, rosé, or sparkling wine.

So again, if you want to check your work, go back to the assumption that, in general, guests tend to consume 1 glass of wine per hour. So if you have 50 bottles of wine, and there are 4 glasses in each bottle, you would multiple 50 by 4 to get 200 glasses of wine, breaking down to each of your 100 guests having one glass per hour for two hours.

Discovering the best red wine is all about tastes. Some people like it sweet and others like it dry. Some prefer the richness of full-bodied red while others find themselves coming back to the easy drinking of an airy, light-bodied red. The red wine your best friend falls head over heels for might not necessarily be your jam. Each wine is unique with its own tasting notes and aromas to draw in your senses.

You know those spicy red berry margaritas that are perfect for lounging poolside or soaking up rays at the beach? Well, this is the red wine version of that. Zinfandels offer fruity and spicy flavors with a light body and smoky finish. It boasts medium tannin levels and high acidity that give it a potent flavor while maintaining its airy texture.

While originally produced in France, most Malbecs now come from Argentina and Chile. The main flavors of a Malbec are blackberry and black cherry. Depending on where it was produced, it can also offer undertones of milk chocolate, sweet tobacco, and violets. The wine is a deep red hue, making it a stunning addition to any meal.

Who will love it: Malbecs are easy to drink though they do offer bolder flavors than lighter-bodied wines. If you love mildly spicy and smoky hints, try a Malbec. Bring a few bottles to your next wine tasting party or down it along with your favorite Mexican tacos or Indian curries.

Also known as Garnacha, Grenache red wines are spiced, berry-heavy wines that come mainly from Spain and the Côtes du Rhône region of France. This varietal is often blended with other red fruit wines including Mourvèdre and Syrah. Light spices underpin strawberry, raspberry, cranberry, and grapefruit flavors in an unusually lightly colored body. The wine is crystalline, adding a stunning visual dimension to the wine-drinking game.

Who will love it: Grenache has a high alcohol content with a lighter body and flavor compared to other red wines. If you like lively and tangy notes, try a Grenache with paella or a hearty casserole.

Besides flavor, think about the body, tannin level, and acidity of each wine when making a selection. People who like bold, pungent flavors will enjoy wines with lots of tannins while beginner wine drinkers may be better off trying more subtle red wines with fewer tannins.

The body of a wine refers to the feel of the liquid in your mouth. Go for full-bodied wines if you enjoy texture and a rich feel or opt for something light-bodied if you prefer an airy experience. Acidity can also affect the wine-drinking experience. Opt for high acid wines like light-bodied reds if you like tangy notes.

I have recently become infatuated with red wine, which is not uncommon as you get older. But as you start dipping your toe into the world of red wine, you realize there are more differences in wines beyond the colors red and white.

We're all aware that red wine has health benefits, and there are some cool hacks that you can use with leftover wine (if that's ever an issue). But what are the differences between them? How do you know which one to choose? What do you pair it with? Choosing red wine can be a daunting task if you're not well versed in the countless types, but I am here to help with the basics.

Pinot Noir is one of those wines that is usually a crowd pleaser. Though there is a wide range of tasting Pinots, they tend to not be too dry which makes it great try for novices. But beware that the older the Pinot, the more dry it tends to be.

Pinot Noirs usually have a berry or black cherry taste and are on the lighter side of reds. It's a wine that can been had alone, or with pretty much anything, which makes it great for sharing at meals. It pairs especially well with pasta dishes and game birds like chicken or duck.

The Cabernet Sauvignon, more commonly referred to as Cabernet or just Cab, is the definition of fine wine. This is the wine that you want your parents to buy you as price tends to correlate with taste. This is not saying that you can't get a good bottle for a decent price, it's just if you have the chance to get an expensive bottle, get a Cabernet.

It's definitely more on the dry side, but fruity in taste. Since it's a heavier wine, I highly recommend eating with this wine. Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with other heavy things such as beef or pasta dishes, especially with creamy sauces. For wine and cheese night, choose aromatic cheeses like blue or camembert.

Merlot is one of the more popular types of red wines in America. It's not too sweet but not too dry either, which makes it a perfect introductory red wine. It has a fruity taste which goes down smoothly, and can be good at all price ranges.

As many know, Argentinians love their meat, so they made the wine perfect for that, pairing well with lean cuts of meat such as sirloin or lamb. If you're more in the mood for a wine and cheese night, aim for aged cheeses such as manchego or gouda.

Just to clear the air: Syrah and Shiraz are the same wine. Syrah is originally a French grape, but after it arrived in Australia, the Australians started calling it Shiraz. Why? Who knows? Australians like to make up new words to confuse foreigners, it's just their thing. 041b061a72
