Wine doesn't go well in the fridge
This is how you can store open wine
After a glass of wine: Close the bottle airtight again so that no oxygen can penetrate.
The convivial evening comes to an end, and the bottle of Lugana that has just opened is on the table. Does the beautiful drop have to end up in the sink now? Or should the bottle be emptied quickly? You don't have to be that drastic. How to properly store open wine, we say here!
Store open wine: oxygen is bad
Basically, experts recommend enjoying a bottle of wine on the day it is opened. Because: Once the bottle is uncorked, oxygen penetrates into it, and the subsequent oxidation makes the drink inedible in a few days. Should you ever store an open wine bottle, the bottle must be closed as quickly as possible and then stored in a cool place. The full the bottle, the less oxygen can penetrate and the longer the wine can be kept.
Temperatures of four to seven degrees ensure that the oxidation is slowed down, so always put opened wine in the refrigerator - even a red one! The emphasis is on "place", so the area that comes into contact with the oxygen remains smaller.
- You store an open red wine in the refrigerator for three to five days - depending on the grape variety. A strong red wine like a Cabernet Sauvignon, which has a lot of acidity and tannin, can be enjoyed longer than a grape variety with little tannin, such as a Sangiovese. With open red wine that you keep, the following applies of course: Take the bottle out of the refrigerator at least one hour before drinking, otherwise it will be too cold.
- White and rosé wines can be enjoyed for two to five days. The same applies here: the fuller the bottle, the longer the taste will last.
Bottle should be tightly closed
If you have to store open wine, you should make sure that the bottle is closed as airtight as possible - this prevents constant penetration of oxygen. There are cork-like wine stoppers at the wine merchant or in the supermarket, which protect the contents against oxygen. In addition, you can fill the contents of the bottle into a smaller (cleaned!) Vessel and thereby reduce the absorption of oxygen.
Incidentally, here are tips for storing closed wines. Yes, a few points should also be observed here!
