ive just opened a bottle of red. how long can i keep it opened for before it goes bad? ive just gotten a taste for it, so i dont know much about them. i have a fake cork stopper in it so its sealed.

I think it's good for a while but I'm not sure for how long. I have a bottle opened since November but since I'm pregnant I'm not drinking it. I'll see how it is in July! lol

unless you draw the air out with a special stopper made for wine it will only last a couple of days. It will oxidize and taste stale, and sometimes flakes will filter out. However, if you are new to red wine you might not even notice the taste difference. You can buy a cheap air cork for about $10 and the wine will last about a week or so. My suggestion: if you dont have a picky pallet yet try the boxed wine (they make pretty good ones now, I like Black Box Zin and I forget one with a flame on it...anyway, the bag in the box doesnt let any air in so it lasts a lot longer) Enjoy! BTW...It was really hard for me to give up red wine while I was pg....if you cant tell:)
