Can You Add Ice to Wine?

During this blazing summer, it has been tough to keep a glass of wine chilled. The question sometimes arises: Is it okay to add ice to wine? The answer, of course, is yes, if you really want to. Just keep in mind a few things:
  • It will dilute the flavor (duh). So, we don't t recommend this for an expensive, quality wine. For a casual drinking wine, it can be okay. Drink quickly!
  • Add just one cube at a time to prevent diluting and to keep the wine cool.
  • Aim for a strong, crisp wine. The colder the wine, the less flavors you'll be able to taste. 
  • Try it with lighter reds, too, that do OK chilled.
