Keeping Wine (post #36915)

Hey everyone,

Happy New Year!

I saw a thread on here recently about storing alcohol. I remember reading some, but cannot find it in the search engine now. I have a question that may have been answered there.

I have about 10 bottles of wine; some white, some red. They are about 2 years old (mostly for my wife who now lives elsewhere). I would like to use them for cooking. They have been stored upright. Again, they are unopened with the foil wrapping untouched.

Might they still be good?

Thanks,
Matt

What is this "keep" you speak of?


Wine is meant to be consumed. They'll make more.

I'm with you. It would be a miracle to find wine in our house! We drink it as soon as dh brings it home. Got a big score last week. he brough 2 cases home from work of the "nicer" variety! Whoopee! Also scored 2 bottles of olive oil and a bottle of port.


Weird tho, there's a new "pink port". I'm not sure I'm dying to try it, but it is in a pretty sparkly bottle.

I don't think I have tried a port yet. Let us know though.

I'm a huge port fan. But, pink port kind of skeeves me out! LOL!


Apparently, it's supposed to appeal to women!

Sounds just *WRONG*, doesn't it?

Oh well, what's the worst that could come of it? Give it a go and report back...
