A sommelier reveals why you should never put the cork back in the wine bottle (TikTok/@confidenceuncorked)
Even avid wine lovers open the cork cork with an opener and after drinking they put the cork back in place and close the bottle. Well, gentlemen and ladies, it turns out that this is a serious mistake. Warner Boyne is a bartender and sommelier, and in a video she posted on TikTok, she explained why it is forbidden, simply not allowed to return the cap and seal the bottle with it.
So what do you do with the wine left in the bottle? She explained. "If you put a cork cap back in a half-empty bottle, you'll see air leak into the bottle." Why is it bad? Because when air enters a half-empty wine bottle, it significantly impairs the taste of the wine.

So what do you do, throw away the bottle? Not at all. Warner suggested a solution: "You need to reduce the amount of oxygen in the container, so I recommend putting the wine in a glass jar. All you need is to pour the remaining wine into the jar or any container with a cork that seals it hermetically."

Another option is to freeze the remaining wine. Yes. What you've heard. Although there's a myth that alcohol doesn't freeze in the freezer, wine will actually freeze if you put it in a freezer. So just pour the leftover wine into a tray of ice cubes and put in the freezer.
After you make sure your kids don't approach the Maine ice cube tray thinking it's a tray of cherry-flavored ice cubes, there are a few ways to use what you've prepared. These cubes are great for all sorts of foods that require extra wine like risotto, pasta sauce, various casseroles or chili con carne – you no longer need to open a bottle of wine specifically to cook. Just go to the fridge, take out a cube and put in a stew. In addition, the wine cubes can be used to make various alcoholic drinks and even soups, and of course desserts.
