Saving leftover wine is risky business. It never tastes quite the same, even if you use one of those fancy air-vacuum pumps. Sure, you can just put the cork back on and stick the bottle in the fridge, but that only keeps the wine drinkable for another day or so.

We'll admit that bottles don't usually go unfinished around here, but in the rare instance that we've got leftover wine on hand, we want to be able to keep it for a few days -- and we want it to still taste good. Today, Amanda's sharing a gadget-free trick she learned from Moore Brothers Wine Company for saving leftover wine that meets our demands.


And just for fun, we're including a photo tutorial of our new favorite wine-saving process. 

Saving Wine Full
Fill a sealable container to the very top. Make sure it's just a little too full.

Spill Close
Some wine should spill while you're covering the container -- this is a good thing. Close it tight, wipe it off and store it in the fridge for up to a week.
