A manufacturer of digital lifestyle products for modern homes, the Ozeri Corporation offers a number of tools to help customers serve wine at the ideal temperature. In particular, the Ozeri Corporation sells an electric wine opener with a built-in thermometer and a stainless steel wine chiller.

At the low end of the temperature spectrum, sparkling wines should be served at a temperature between 40 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The low serving temperature ensures fine, crisp bubbles rather than foamy ones. To achieve the ideal serving temperature, place the bottle on ice for 30 to 60 minutes before opening, and keep it on ice until the wine is gone.

Hailed by many as a refreshing drink on a hot day, white and rose wines should be served between 50 and 60 degrees. Leaving a bottle in ice for about 30 minutes should chill it to the appropriate temperature. The wine be can be left at room temperature as it is being consumed. As far as red wines go, place the bottle on ice for no more than 15 minutes before serving. Red wine should be served at a temperature between 60 and 70 degrees.
