Learning how to store open wine is necessary for those unfinished open wine bottles! We’re partnering with zzysh® in a sponsored post to show you how to preserve open bottles of wine and spirits.
Where are my wine lovers at? Champagne sippers? I love a good bottle of wine, there’s no doubt about it. I am a fan of reds, Pinot Noir, Cabernet varietals, and Merlot-blends are my absolute favorite! I can enjoy red wine with almost anything, I do, however, love white wine with fish. There’s nothing quite like a crisp glass of Riesling with a salmon dinner!
Wine should be savored, so it is totally understandable if you don’t finish the entire bottle each time. I drink wine at home when entertaining, so I tend to over buy and open up all of the different bottles for my guests to try. That means I have plenty of open wine bottles that I need to store. If you’re a wine lover, you know how sad it can be to waste an unfinished bottle of wine! Sure, you can re-cork it, but the taste is just not the same and it’s freshness can be questionable. Here’s how to preserve an open bottle of wine or champagne, no matter the varietal.
How to store open wine: Ways to preserve wine after opening
Use the zzysh® wine preserving system
Zzysh® preserves the wine’s natural flavor and color with its innovative system. The unique technology replaces the
air in the bottle with a protective atmosphere consisting of the inert gas argon for wine and a combination of argon and carbon dioxide for sparkling wine. This in combination with the stopper, works to protect the wine and sparkling wine from oxidation, ensuring flavor, taste, fizz and color are all retained. This is a great way to store open wine and to preserve its flavor to keep an open wine bottle fresh. What an innovative way to do it, this makes it easy to enjoy wine by the glass whenever we want!
Store your open wine bottles in the refrigerator
Once you’ve removed all of the air and closed the bottle with the zzysh® wine preserving system, pop it in the fridge. This can help keep an open wine bottle fresh, experts say that reducing light and humidity can help to maintain freshness. Oh, and YES, storing red wine in the fridge is absolutely doable, too!
Can’t I just re-cork it?
Sure, but don’t expect that wine to last any longer than a day! Wine starts to go bad when it touches the air, so an imperfect corking can cost you the rest of your bottle. If it’s champagne you’re drinking, the bubbly fizz you enjoy will most definitely be gone. It’s hard to get that cork back in there sometimes anyway, stop struggling and start zzysh-ing!
Now that you’ve learned how to store open wine bottles, don’t let your open wine go bad! You can enjoy every last sip of your wine or champagne as if it were the first! I brought home some wine from my trip to Italy, and I absolutely refuse to waste it!
