It’s ok to chill a wine by putting it in the freezer.
Answer: False.This is a Maybe. I hate to admit it, but I’ve done it, and I think without any bad effects. But--and it’s a big but--the only whites I’ve ever put in the freezer have all been pretty inexpensive wines. If I have, say, an expensive white Burgeundy ordeaux that needs to be chilled, Iâ€™ll use a gentler method: an ice-water bath. Fill a bucket half with ice and half with cold water. The bucket should be deep enough so the bottle can be submerged up to its neck in the ice-water bath. To chill a white wine this way takes about 20 minutes.
