Is there a general rule of thumb for how long a bottle of red wine will last? Is it different from white wine? Should I recork it or no? Use the vacuum caps?
Any info will help

And if you really care about the wine and want a convenient and affordable way to preserve wines for a couple extra days, take an regular plastic screw cap water bottle (empty of course) and pour your wine in that. Squeeze the air out and immediately cap it.

interesting thing is the phrase "rule Of thumb"came from the old english law that states a man cannot beat his wife with aything wider then his thumb,thus the rule of thumb.

The best plan for keeping wine that I have found is to open the bottle and immediately and carefully pour half of it into a 375ml bottle, then seal that and put it in the cooler or fridge. It does incorporate some air, but the wine will hold on for a few days.
