How Long Does Wine Last When Open?
How long does wine last once I open it? It's probably the most common question among wine drinkers. You opened a bottle of wine on Saturday night, you have one glass left -- and right around Wednesday evening you start thinking how you deserve a glass of wine to celebrate making it mid week. Should I drink the rest of the wine from Saturday? Or open a new bottle and face possibly that one going bad before the weekend when you want the rest of the bottle.
As you can see from the chart, light white wines and Rose' are your best bet on longevity. Full bodied white wines like Chardonnay however don't last as long as say a Pinot Grigio.
Red wines last typically 3-5 days once opened. Just make sure you put the cork back in and store in a cool place. If I know I'm not getting back to a bottle of good red for a few days, I stick it in the fridge. Did you know red wine is actually supposed to be served at between 60-70 degrees anyway? We like to store at room temp, but when opening a new bottle, we put it in the fridge for about a half hour to an hour before serving.

Wine are always there if there is an event or celebration, they witness our triumphs and accomplishment, this is a very informative for consumers, that they will have an idea of how long is the life's span of the particular wine. I remember that whenever my dad is drinking wine he often laugh a lot and he will pat me on my back with no reason at all, and we are all laughing in the house with no reason at all, it is a moment that is very precious for all of us.

Oh, I usually don't pay attention to this. Every time I open a bottle of wine to drink, I will keep it in the refrigerator and use it until the end. I usually take advantage of drinking, so I don't care about the deadline.

The average wine can only be left open for three to five days before it starts to spoil. Of course, the sort of wine will have a big impact on this! Read on to learn more about this. But don't worry, "spoiled" wine is really just vinegar, so you won't get sick from it.
