Imagine you’ve invited friends over for a dinner party. Wines were opened, great conversation was shared, the food was delicious, and an all-around good time was had. But when your guests have left, what do you do with the opened bottles of wine?
After being exposed to oxygen, an uncorked bottle of wine begins to oxidize, i.e., go bad. And yet, allowing a wine to “breathe” (or aerate) when it’s first opened can soften flavors and enhance aromas. (Although this process should only be considered when the bottle is first opened.)
In a matter of hours, an opened bottle of wine will begin to oxidize, thus irrevocably turning it into vinegar. If we’re talking about a box wine, you could use it for cooking, or just pour it out, but if it’s a TRIO wine, having it go bad or pouring it out would be a genuine tragedy.
To prevent such a tragedy from occurring, we’ve compiled a few tips that will help you extend the life of your TRIO Perfect Blend wine:
Generally speaking, an opened wine will keep for anywhere between three and five days — if you’ve followed the steps listed above. TRIO Merlot and TRIO Cabernet Sauvignon can be stored for up to five days, while TRIO Chardonnay can make it all the way to a week!
Now that you know how to store your favorite TRIO Wines, it’s time to start planning your next dinner party. Cheers!
