Uses For Wine That’s Gone Bad

Yes, wine can spoil. Don’t think that the fact that you can leave wine to age means that it will last forever. It must be stored in the correct environment, such as in our New Jersey wine storage facility. That way, your wines will be in the right temperature, have the right lighting, experience limited vibrations, etc. If, for some unfortunate reason, your wine happens to spoil, it’s not the end of the world. You can actually do quite a lot of different things with it. That’s right – we’ll show you. • You can cook with it: The quality doesn’t matter as much when you’re applying heat to the wine. So you can boil or braise the wine and you won’t really taste it. Try adding it to a stew or to a pasta sauce. You can even look up some recipes for cooking with your spoiled wine – ha! • You can bathe with it: We’re being for real! Pouring a glass of wine into your bath every day, can help to soften up your skin and to even add elasticity and firm it up at the same time. Even celebrities do it (then again, celebrities do all sorts of stuff), but we think you should try it. • You can make Artisan Red Wine Vinegar with it: You can make amazing vinegar with red wine, instead of going to buy it at the store. Your souring wine is great for doing that, it’s actually quite easy to make and it tastes great! • You can use it as dye: There’s actually a lot of art you can make from spoiled wine, like dying your tablecloth or other fabrics that you want to add a special touch to. You see how impossible it is for wine stains to come out? That’s the reason wine is a great dye. • You can make compost with it: Spoiled wine is a great starter for your compost heap. It encourages the bacteria to break down the organic material in the compost heap. Try it! If you are looking for professional grade wine storage for your wine collection than give us a call to discuss the climate controlled and secure wine storage options, we have available to keep your fine wines safely stored in our wine storage facility in New Jersey.
