How Long Can You Leave A Bottle of Red Wine Open?

on September 07, 2023

To get right to the point, red wine can last 1-5 days after being opened, with some variation based on the following factors. 

Here's a rough guideline:

  • Young, lighter red wines (e.g., Pinot Noir): 1-3 days
  • Young, fuller-bodied red wines (e.g., Cabernet Sauvignon): 3-5 days
  • Aged red wines: 1-2 days

It's important to note that these are general estimates, and individual wines may vary. Trust your senses – if the wine smells or tastes off, it's time to bid it farewell.

To maximize the lifespan of your opened bottle of Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon, consider these tips:

a. Use a wine stopper: Replace the cork or use a wine stopper specifically designed to remove excess air from the bottle.

b. Refrigerate: Storing your opened red wine in the fridge can slow down oxidation.

c. Repurpose leftovers: Use leftover wine for cooking, making sauces, or freezing it into ice cubes for future use.  

d. Choose the right bottle size: Smaller bottles leave less room for air, extending the wine's shelf life.

Final Notes

While red wine can be enjoyed over multiple days after opening, its shelf life is influenced by various factors, including the type of wine and storage conditions. To savor the flavors and aromas of your red wine for as long as possible, be mindful of these factors and follow the recommended tips for preserving your open bottle.  Let's cheers now to the three-day old Cab Sauv in our cups.
