How Long Does an Open Bottle of Wine Last?⁣

It will depend on the type of wine and how well the wine is stored. Fortified wines can last open for up to a month, but most table wines last only about 3–5 days before they start to spoil.⁣

Don’t worry though, “spoiled” wine is essentially just vinegar, so it’s not going to harm you, instead use it for cooking!⁣

Here’s how long different styles of wine last open.⁣

Sparkling Wine: 1–3 days in the fridge with a sparkling wine stopper⁣

Light White, Sweet White and Rosé Wine: 5–7 days in fridge ⁣

Full-Bodied White Wine: 3–5 days in fridge⁣

Red Wine: 3–5 days in a cool dark place with a cork⁣

Fortified Wine: 28 days in a cool dark place⁣

When you know you can’t drink it anymore, it’s in perfect shape for cooking. Use it to marinate or in a pasta sauce! ??
