Wine is considered to be one of the delicious drinks in the world. It is in fact being served to royalties and some other dignitaries or any other important personalities during special occasions.
Wines belong to expensive drinks but they are not exempted from spoilage or factory defects no matter now strict is it being stored, packed and shipped.
There several ways to know if the wine you’re drinking is bad. First would be the taste. A spoiled wine usually tastes like vinegar. This has been caused by oxidation, the mortal enemy of wines. Oxidation occurs when the wine has been exposed to open air or oxygen for a longer period of time.
Soiled wines usually have brownish color. This can be best seen among white wines because it will turn into bright yellow or brownish color. When it is being observed, just smell it and surely you will know that it isn’t good to drink.
After opening a bottle of wine, it should be consumed immediately or placed inside the refrigerator. Say for example you brought home a bottle of Chardonnay only to find out that you will be drinking it all alone. Instead of waiting some drinking body, you can sip some of it and place the remaining contents inside your fridge.
