Red, white or bubbly: this is how long an opened bottle of wine lasts

This is how long wine will keep after opening the bottle

Alright, we’ll admit right away that when we open a bottle of wine when there’s company around, it usually doesn’t last longer than one night.

But how long can you keep an opened bottle of wine? We’ve got the answer for you!

This influences the wine, although the length of the process is different from one wine to the next. Find out how long you can keep an open bottle of wine on the next page!
