How long does red wine last?
How long your red wine will last after you have opened it will depend on the type of red wine you’re drinking. Generally speaking, a fuller-bodied wine will last for up to four days when sealed and stored in a cool, dark space. Generally, wines with a higher acidity level and more tannins will last longer than those with lower levels.
If you’re wondering how long red wine lasts before opening then you can count on your wine staying perfect for a couple of years, as long as the conditions you are storing it within are right.
Is red wine good for your health?
The motto ‘everything in moderation’ fits red wine as well as it does everything else we enjoy. There are some health studies which have cited evidence that says a single glass of red wine every day has benefits for maintaining heart health, but it’s important that you check with your own physician before you start guzzling wine ‘for your health’.
How do I store red wine
A wine cellar is cool, dark and slightly humid environment ideally suited to storing red wine because there is very little in the way of environmental factors which influence the consistency of those conditions. However not all wines need to be stored in a cellar, and most young are even made to be enjoyed immediately.
