Traditional bottle stoppers and repurposed corks are effective ways to keep your wine fresh for 24 hours, but if you're looking to prolong the life of your favorite vino for several days, your best bet is to use your FoodSaver® Food Preservation System. The vacuum sealing method is ideal for keeping flavors in and air particles out, as the airtight packaging can optimally preserve your opened bottle of wine.

If you're tired of using plastic wrap and old corks to save your wine, consider the benefits of vacuum sealing.

What Happens to Wine When Exposed to Air?
Allowing your wine to breathe may enrich its flavor. However, prolonged exposure to air can lead to a dramatic decrease in quality, as oxygen causes a chemical reaction that can cause the beverage to lose its taste and aroma.

Slight aeration may improve the taste, but your wine should be covered after it's been opened to preserve the flavors and maximize its shelf life. To get the most from your bottle, store red wines upright in a room with moderate temperature, as this can also reduce the amount of oxygen to which the beverage is exposed.

Keeping Wine Fresh for Days
To ensure that your bottles remain properly sealed between glasses, it's important to use a preservation method that can create an airtight seal.

One of the best ways to ensure that your wine stays fresh longer is to use your FoodSaver® Food Preservation System and FoodSaver® Bottle Stoppers - these accessories work with your Vacuum Sealer to prevent air or harmful chemicals from ruining your vino. These stoppers can keep your wine fresh up to 5X longer when compared to traditional storage methods, as the vacuum seal effectively allows the wine to maintain its characteristics and taste.
