6 Signs Your Bottle of Wine's Gone Bad

Feb 26 2014 - 5:30am

Not all wine is ideal for storing. If it's been in contact with air for too long or has a tainted cork, the liquid inside has turned and should not be consumed. Here are a handful of telltale signs that might indicate a good wine has gone bad.

One last word of advice: Always smell and examine the actual liquid. Although the term "corked" [1] commonly refers to tainted wine, inspecting the cork alone will not determine if the wine has gone bad. Use your other senses. Have you ever had an undrinkable bottle of wine? How did you know it was questionable?
