Wine Cooler Temperature vs. bottle

marbury021 | Apr 23, 2012 11:22 AM

Hi -

I recently purchased a wine refrigerator and am storing my whites at 45 and reds at 55. When I take a bottle out, however, my Brookstone wine chiller says it's much warmer than that. Should the wine essentially be ready to drink from the refrigerator? Am I wrong in my assumption that the wine itself should be very close to the temperature inside of the refrigerator? Also, is it alright to use a regular glass thermometer inside a glass of wine to test this?

Thanks in advance!
