    Default White wine?

    I bought a bottle of white wine for the first time today to make a sauce, can anyone tell me how to store the rest of the bottle and how long it lasts once open? Any suggestions on how to use to rest of it (neither me or hubby drink it)?
    Thanks.

    I would keep it in the fridge and use within a few days. If you don't drink it, maybe use it in some more recipes e.g. risotto.

    If you're not wine drinkers, next time you need some for cooking most liquor stores sell wine for cooking in small pouches rather than having to buy a whole bottle.

    Was it expensive? Is it worth keeping? Once white wine is open you generally keep it in the fridge and drink it (at least that's what I do). I've never had a bottle open long enough to know how long it lasts (ie we drink it).

    Can you find a recipe for white wine vinegar? I used that a lot in cooking. Not sure how to make it though.

    It can be kept in the fridge for a couple of months. Seal it and pop it in the fridge. Use it again for cooking another time.

    Can you freeze it in ice cube trays to use for next time? This works for red so assume it would work for white

    Freeze it? it'd better not be a nice bottle

    I'd drink it OP or use in it a risotto

    If it's a good bottle, give it to a friend who drinks white? They will luff you

    It was only $6 for the bottle so probably not that great. I like the idea of making risotto and freezing it.
    Thanks for all the responses.
