You are not a master sommelier and you have questions about wine that you think are “silly” to ask. Trust us, it’s okay. When we started FitVine Wine we didn’t know everything about wine, but we were determined to craft delicious wines for active individuals and find expert answers to our questions.
Below we address three of the most commonly asked questions about wine storage. So pour yourself a big glass of wine and get ready to learn!
What’s the best way to store unopened wine?
You picked up a few bottles of wine from the store or perhaps you created your own case and are wondering what’s the best way to store it.

How long does wine last once it’s opened?
This answer depends on the type of wine and how you store it. For example, sparkling wines lose carbonation shortly after being opened while a properly stored white wine is drinkable for 5-7 days. A simple vacuum wine pump and stopper kit is a small investment that will make storing open wine all the more easier. Reference our wine storage chart below:
