We had 3/4 of a bottle of Cabernet left over from the party last week. I threw my favorite sparkling, dazzling, glittering, iced out wine cork into the top,
and put it in our wine rack.
My husband is a baseball coach, and last night they had a game. He comes home late on game nights, so I popped off the blinged out wine stopper and poured myself a glass (and thoroughly enjoyed it ;)).
It was a pretty big bottle, and I knew I was not polishing off the entire thing, so I did what I do best. Enter google. I searched “how long does red wine keep once opened”.
Well, well, well. As it turns out, this is apparently common knowledge in the vino connoisseur world. Winos everywhere know that this stuff is technically “bad” after being opened for just 3 days -even if it’s re-corked. Aaaaand it’s supposed to be refrigerated -even if it’s red!
I always thought: the older the wine, the better! What gives?!
News to me!! I know you keep whites in the fridge, but reds?!
Beer & “girlie” bottled drinks are refrigerated, this I know.
What? You guys actually keep food in the fridge?!? 😉
Did you already know this? Are there any wine experts out there? Will anything disgusting or horrible happen to me if I continue to drink “stale” wine?
