There is absolutely no shame in not finishing an entire bottle of wine — especially if you’re drinking alone. Before you pour what’s left down the drain or guzzle a glass for no reason other than “not letting it go to waste,” consider that you CAN save the wine for another day — and if you store it properly, it’ll taste almost as good, if not as good, the next time you drink it (in fact, some wines taste even better after being opened).


Learn about the best ways to keep leftover wine tasting fresh and delicious by listening to episode #18 of Inside Wine Podcast.
