How long can you keep an opened bottle of wine?
In general you can keep an open bottle of wine about 1 or 2 days after opening. This is when you seal the bottle properly after pouring. We recommend to store the wine at a low temperature, so if you don’t have a basement or special wine climate cabinet, the fridge is your best option. This also goes for red wines. When a wine is stored in a warm space the quality and taste will decrease even faster.
Once opened, make sure you store your wines standing up. It’s the oxygen that influences the taste of the wine. When a bottle is laying down, the surface becomes bigger and therefore oxidation goes faster.
To slow down oxidation it is advised to remove as much air from the bottle as possible. This is very easily done with the Vacu Vin Wine Saver. The Wine Saver creates a vacuum seal, which makes your wine last for about 7 to 14 days!
