Do you need a few ideas for storing opened wine? Discover the top tips for red wine storage that will allow you to enjoy yours a few additional days.
Overall, once a bottle is opened and exposed to oxygen, the red wine will begin to change. These tips allow for storing opened wine to maximize the life of it.
Here are five of the best accessories to use if you are storing opened wine in the original bottle.
1. Umbra Drinking Buddy Bottle Stopper: This is one of my favorite stopper sets. If you need a simple stopper to help save it overnight or for a couple of days, this will do the trick. Just add the stopper to the top of the bottle and it will stop additional oxygen from entering. It's also cute, fun and includes some glass charms.
2. Vacu Vin Concerto 5-Piece Saver Set with 4 Stoppers: This is another great option if you want to store it overnight or just for a couple of days. It takes the process one step further by allowing you to remove some of the oxygen already in the bottle. It's also easy to use - simply add the stopper into the top of the bottle and pump out the air until you hear the click. This is one of the most commonly used types of storing opened wine accessories.
3. Farberware Bar And Wine Series Champagne Stopper: If you need to save a bottle of Champagne or sparkling, then this is the type of stopper you need. This is the perfect option if you are storing either of these just overnight or for a couple of days.
4. Wine Shield, Pack of 10: This is a fairly new product on the market. It's designed for those storing opened wine for a little bit longer. It's a small disc that sits on top of the liquid in the opened bottle. The disc protects it from the oxygen sitting above it. After placing the disc in the bottle, you can pour a glass and the disc will move back into place once you set the bottle down. Because the wine in the bottle is always protected, you are then able to enjoy it for a week or more after you open it.
5. Oenophilia Private Preserve Wine Preserver: This product protects it in a similar way to the Wine Shield - except with a protective layer of gas. When you are ready to store your opened bottle, simply add a small amount of gas. This forms a seal over liquid to protect it from further oxidation. The gas does not harm it or change its flavors. This is commonly used in bars, restaurants and at wineries. You can usually get up to 100 or more uses out of one bottle. This method will also allow you to store it for just a day or more than a week.
