FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

How do I properly heat the wine for Hot Wine - The French Way without losing the alcohol content?

To properly heat the wine for Hot Wine - The French Way, it's important to avoid boiling it, as boiling can cause a significant reduction in alcohol content.

While traditional Hot Wine - The French Way is made with red wine for its rich flavor profile, you can substitute it with white wine for a different taste experience. White wine will offer a lighter, potentially more aromatic variant of the drink, though it's less common. Keep in mind that the choice of wine can significantly affect the final taste, so choose a wine that you enjoy drinking on its own.
