I always did, but why leave any?

How long we talking?

Just for a party? Or a glass, then a glass next week?



Just for a party, leave it out. But I always like chilled/cold wine so ours is always in the fridge.

No. We use good stoppers and it's fine. I wouldn't recommend doing it for weeks though...

Toss it, reds can be corked and saved for a day or two at most. Don't refrigerate red wines ever.

air is always a bad thing..

Depends how much bacteria got in when you opened it.. did you have your lips on it ?

barring the possibilty of Bacteria, ( keeping it corked between pours) ... and then storing the bottle in and upside down angle to keep the air off the cork.. it would be alright for a time but not for long term.. IMHO

Link Posted: 8/7/2005 6:14:13 PM EDT
Smell it.
If it still smells like wine then try it.
If it doesn't taste like wine then..........

gargle with warm salt water.. heavy on the salt.. gargle deep till you gag on the salt.. you want to coat it well.. the salt keeps the bacteria from reproducing.. really.. try it

I have drunk wine stored in an opened bottle in my fridge for longer than 6 months and the wine was just fine.

Dude, throw it out and buy another Yellowtail. It is not expensive in the least. Red wine should not be kept for more than say 3 days after it has been opened.

Yep. Deep six it. Reds can go without refrigeration after opening. Whites should be refrigerated after opening. Both can last a few days after opening.

Snort some warm salt water. Both nostrils, one at a time. Yeah, it burns some, but it will heal ya up!
Link Posted: 8/7/2005 7:04:11 PM EDT
unless some wild yeast or other vinegar causing bugs got in it it'll be fine health wise
I rarely drink wine and I have multiple bottles open on my liquor shelf from well over 6 months ago.
the taste on a fine wine(nothing I drink would qualify as fine wine) might degrade from oxidation, but unless an alcohol tollerant microbe got in it while it was open it won't kill you
I think the worst that is likely to happen will be the wine becoming vinegar

A lot of companies are going to screw top bottles now. I had a nicer desert wine a while back at a restaurant that came in a screw top bottle.

Why's that? They trying to save money? I've noticed a lot of wines going to synthetic corks.

Something great about popping a cork.

Yes/no. White, I would, red, I don't...

What you really need, if you don't drink the entire bottle, is to get one of those vacume pump things for wine bottles. Sticking the cork back in and drinking it 3-4days later won't fly, the wine will not be at it's best.

ETA: WHOA I didn't see the 6mo part.. Don't drink that shit.

Here's your answer.





This bottle was opened May 15 and reopened 15 minutes ago. Safe to drink? Yes. Pallatable? NO

And nevermind the wall receptacles. I'm redoing my kitchen.

six months??? Once you open it it needs to be consumed within a week tops.


Shiraz is my favorite Wine too. Yellow Tail is decent. I actually have a bottle of Black Swan in the fridge right now that I opened two nights ago and intend to finish tomorrow.

Dump it. When you open a bottle plan on drinking it or dumping it.

Wine ages well when it's not opened.

Perhaps cheaper. But more importantly, a metal twist cap will never dry out and allow the wine to be ruined like a real cork can. Remember to store your wines nose down so the cork stays moist.

Please tell me you are kidding.

Open a bottle drink it or dump it.

Also holding most mass comerical produced wines for years is not good.

Buy it and drink it.

how the heck was I supposed to know?
Its fine to let hard liquors sit opened
Beer is a no-brainer
Wine? who knew it would go bad after a time being opened?
what about coffee liqueur?

You don't know what you don't know. Some wines do get better with age, some don't. Either way, it is unopened aging.

I tyically drink reds, and will open a bottle, have a little taste, recork and let it sit 30-45 minutes before serving. This allows a limited amount of oxidation to bring out the flavors. You can really notice a distinct difference with many wines.

I don't know about coffe liqueur, but I keep Bailey's in the fridge.

Neither do synthetic corks. I say use those, since they're more fun. :)
