For example, a tablespoon of red wine vinegar may only have one drop of alcohol in it. Red wine vinegar is mostly used as a cooking ingredient, but was also used as a mild acid in the past.

  • Q:

    How long does red wine keep after opening?

    A:

    In general, red wines start to lose their aromas and flavors and begin to taste acidic 2 or 3 days after opening. However, the more bodied a wine is, the more likely it is to have a higher tannin-content. Tannins reduce a wine's deterioration upon contact with oxygen and since lighter red wines have fewer of these antioxidant compounds, they tend to deteriorate faster.
