How do you know if wine is spoiled?!

Question: How do you know if wine is spoiled!?
I took the cork out of my wine 2 days ago, and I've left it like that!. Is there a way that it can be stored!? The cork is too hard to put back in!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

it's not going to keep without the cork!. maybe a day and a half!.

smell it!.!.!.if you smell vinegar or just any foul oder, toss it!.

you can buy re-usable rubber corks!.

most reds only keep for about 4 days after being opened!. 2 days for whites!. cork or no corkWww@FoodAQ@Com

Oxidation—which begins as soon as the cork is pulled—is the enemy of wine!. Refrigeration will slow oxidation, but it doesn't stop it altogether!. In the rare instance that there is leftover wine at my house, I can drink an opened bottle for about three days before I start to notice it fading!. Being you left the wine open for a couple of days you are going to notice an off smell and/or taste off flavor!.
It is a myth that vinegar is the natural next step in the evolution of wine!. Leaving the wine open for extended periods of time (overnight for example), this myth suggests, will result in its conversion to vinegar!. Another belief is that wine kept in an inappropriate temperature range will also turn to vinegar!. While both sets of circumstances will result in spoiled wine, neither will cause the conversion of wine to vinegar!. There is nothing in wine that holds potential to convert it to vinegar as a result of exposure to air or heat!.
Because exposure to air alone, is not enough to enact the chemical conversion of ethanol to vinegar, leaving wine exposed to air overnight will only result in its becoming oxidized!. Such a wine will taste off and stale but won’t have turned to vinegar!. It will be spoiled but there will be nothing vinegary about it!.

Buy an inexpensive wine stopper at just about any store selling kitchen utility items!Www@FoodAQ@Com

you might soak the cork in water for 3 hours, reverse it and slip it back in!. OR get a freind and drink what is left!.Www@FoodAQ@Com


1) it may be cloudy; more sediment at the bottom of the bottle

2) + the cord came out into DRY pieces

3) + the smell of a bathroom hasn't been cleansed (MOLD)

4) finally it tastes like rotten liquid, kinda sour etc!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
