I dissolve it in a little hot water. Very little is needed- like maybe 1/4 or so? Stir well, to make sure it's dissolved, and then add it. You could also pull out a very small sample of wine, and dissolve the k-meta in that, and then add it back. I use the microwave for about 15 seconds, to get the liquid hot, and then add the k-meta. Don't breathe in the fumes, though!
