5 Steps to Keep Your Open Bottle of Wine Tasting Fresh

5 Steps to Keep Your Open Bottle of Wine Tasting Fresh

Keeping an open bottle of wine tasting fresh does not have to cost you a lot of money, nor does it require a fancy wine cellar or wine fridge. Keep your open bottles of wine tasting fresh for two weeks or more simply, economically, and reliably by using an argon wine preserver spray, like VineyardFresh.

Remember - the 3 things that spoil wine are:

  • Direct Sunlight
  • Heat
  • Exposure to Air

So, after your pour yourself a nice glass of red, here's how you preserve the rest of the bottle for another day:

  1. Spray the bottle with VineyardFresh. Putting argon into the bottle will create an invisible protective layer on top of the surface of the wine, preventing the wine from being exposed to air and stopping oxidation
  2. Recork the bottle. Although not required for VineyardFresh to work, recorking the bottle keeps you from spilling it, and keeps our dirt and dust.
  3. Keep the bottle upright. This minimized the wine surface area inside the bottle, ensuring the two quick bursts of argon are enough to create the protective layer across the whole surface of the wine.
  4. Store the bottle away from direct sunlight. Beyond oxidation, direct sunlight is a second cause of wine going bad.
  5. Store the bottle in a cool place. Heat is the third contributor to wine going bad. Keep the bottle in a relatively cool place.

If you do these steps, you'll be able to come back to this bottle days or weeks later and enjoy another great tasting glass of wine. Repeat the steps above to preserve the bottle again for the next glass.

Pick up a can of VineyardFresh and keep your wine tasting fresh!
