I do a lot of cooking with wine but I don't always use the entire bottle nor am I able to just polish it off. How long can I keep a bottle of wine in the fridge to use again before it "goes bad"?
Thanks for your insight.

For red wine as many as 4-5. Red wine is just more forgiving.

I'm not one who drinks inexpensive wines, I
just cook with Chuck.

I've had whites open in the fridge that lasted for a couple weeks. Diminished.....sure, but they were still very drinkable. As for reds, I have a bottle of 02 Neal Cab that's been recorked and hanging around in the cellar now for three weeks. I test it every now and then, and it's still very good. I once had a Brunello that was recorked and sat at room temp for 9 months that was "very" drinkable. As for cooking I wouldn't hesitate to use any decent red wine that still drinks well.
