      For anyone who enjoys cooking with wine, as I do, likely can relate to the issue of having opened bottles of wine losing their flavour and taste, and therefore either becoming undrinkable, or be too sour-tasting to cook with properly. While I must admit that I rarely have the issue of wine being left over, I do generally use the last drops of wine to cook with, which seems far smarter than opening a new bottle just to use a tiny bit. However, I have often noticed the vinegar-like taste, and sometimes wonder just how this flavour will affect my cooking. I have now discovered, quite by accident,

      the solution to this, and I cannot believe someone didn’t think of it before.

      I was shopping at my favourite wine store in Calgary, Metrovino, and I spied an item I have never seen before. Winelife Professional Wine Preservation System is actually a nitrogen and carbon dioxide gas, sold in a white pressurized canister, that when injected in an open but unfinished bottle of wine, preserves the wine in its fresh state. How it does this, I learned from reading the canister, is that this gas is heavier than oxygen, so it settles under the oxygen and above the wine in the bottle, therefore preventing oxidation of the wine,


      • which is what causes it to deteriorate and spoil. I am not up on my chemistry, but I decided to purchase this item, at $16, and test it out on my several bottles of opened wine around my kitchen.

        I always have a bottle of dry white wine next to my stove, available for cooking at any time, and because I drink almost exclusively red wine, I rarely have less than two bottles of almost-finished red wine as well. While the white wine does not seem to lose its flavour as quickly as the red, I injected some of the gas into all of the bottles. I noticed the

        difference right away in the smell and taste of the red Shiraz, which generally gets to be similar to vinegar, even after a couple of days. I especially noticed the difference in a bottle of red that was only about a third gone, and even two days later, I actually could drink and enjoy this bottle, whereas normally I would simply use that bottle for cooking. The Winelife Professional Wine Preservation System is a wonderful concept, and it really works. I find I waste much less wine, and wasting wine is tragic, in my opinion, and I therefore spend less money on wine every week. This product is perfect!
