Most wines should only be used three to five days after opening before they begin to spoil. Of course, this depends a lot on the type of wine! Let’s find out with True Wine! Don’t worry too, because “spoiled” wine is basically just vinegar, which won’t do much harm to your health.
How long can wine bottles last?
Sparkling wine can be stored in the refrigerator for about 1-3 days from opening. As soon as the lid is opened, a large amount of carbonate gas will overflow. Traditionally produced sparkling wines like Cava or Champagne can have a longer shelf life than tank wines like Prosecco. These traditional wines have more atmospheric pressure, so they can also be stored longer.
Light white, sweet white and rosé
5-7 days is the shelf life for most white and rosé wines. In about 1 week, you should enjoy and refrigerate the bottle of wine. You can feel the change of taste right after the first day due to oxidation. The overall fruit character of the wine will often diminish, becoming less vibrant.
Full body white wine
Full-bodied white wines have a shelf life of about 3-5 days. These include wines like Chardonnay and Viognier. Always remember to keep the cork tight and keep it refrigerated. You can also think of a vacuum seal to preserve this wine.
Red wines are usually used for about 3-5 days in a cool place. Red wines contain more tannins and higher acidity, the longer they are stored. As a result, some light reds with little tannin, such as Pinot Noir, will not keep as long as the bold Petite Sirah. Some wines even improve after the first day they open the nawos. Remember to keep your wine refrigerated, even at room temperature, but at around 21 degrees Celsius (70 degrees Fahrenheit).
Spirits have a fairly long shelf life: about 28 days with varieties like Port, Sherry or Marsala. These wines can be preserved for a long time as well as have beautiful colors, but if left out in the air, they will also quickly lose their superior flavor when exposed to light and high temperature. In particular, there are a number of wines that are not degraded, such as Madeira – due to being oxidized. In addition, the sweeter the dessert wine, the longer the shelf life. You should also remember the rule of temperature: Always prefer low temperature storage!
