I'm going to listen carefully to a guy named Banjo tell me how to drink my wine. I need to know how far down to push the paper bag when I'm swigging under the overpass.

The trick to avoid spoiled wine is make sure you use a flexible plastic straw, you can usually get them with a  water bottle, you can throw the bottle into the recycling.  Next, carefully staple each end of a cloth belt to the top of the container so it can be slung around your neck, this prevents it from being dropped and thus spoiled and hey hands free action.  Lastly, tear off the spigot and insert your straw into the opening, tada!

That's why I stick to hard liquor. Any resealed bottle tastes just fine after leaving it in the trunk of your car for like a year.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA......NO.


a white wine is good for several hours, usually tainted and sour by morning

a red wine of great quality will be tasty for 2-3 days max;

a red wine of average quality is good for the night.


seriously if you are fine with crappy wine after a few days I envy you your thrifty palate.

In my drinking days, there was no open bottle left long enough to know when it goes bad.

I'll stick with Wine Spectator's recommendations

Glass bottles have some problems as containers for wine. Since they're a fixed shape, pouring out a glass in Earth's atmosphere inevitably introduces oxygen into the wine, which would totally ruin any super-delicate whatever over 6..24ish hours. Fortunately, you can now buy wine in bags/boxes, which don't have that problem since the effective size of the bag shrinks as the wine gets poured out. Except for the last glass or so out of a bag, it's "Wine goes out, nothing goes in."

In a rational world, wine snobs would be asking, no, demanding that their wine come in plastic bags. We don't live in that world.  OTOH, I wonder if you could sell an N2-pressurized "wine saver" device to wine snobs.

How about argon and Bluetooth-enabled?

I've seen those for sale. I don't know if anyone bought them.

Ar is overkill. N2 will not react with anything in wine at 2 atm and 373 K. That's way overpressure and over-temperature for what wine is usually subjected to. N2 is also much cheaper than Ar. This is like the Monster Cable of wine saving systems at $650. I would suggest spending that $650 on a bunch of decent wine instead. :-P

This is why I'd rather drink my wine at home of from a full bottle
rather than encouraging restaurateurs to sell me a nasty glass
of wine for an exorbitant price.

If I do see a good wine by the glass on the menu, and want to
try it, and pay the price, I'll ask "When was the bottle opened?"
or "Can you open a new bottle".  Then you've got to trust the
staff to be honest about it.

Argon is heavier than oxygen, so it makes a blanket over the top of the wine.  Nitrogen is about the same as oxygen, so they mix a little more readily and you would need to completely vacuum out the oxygen before replacing the headspace with nitrogen.  At that point you might as well just leave it under vacuum.

We have a gizmo that evacuates (some of) the air from an open bottle through a one-way valve in a stopper.
Something like this.

It helps. Some. But I'd say you only get an extra couple of days from that. Not having as much O2 in there to oxidize the wine definitely is a plus.
