Fixing a Wine Storage Mistake

You’ve inadvertently stored a bottle of wine upright for several months. It’s highly likely that the cork will have dried out and shrunk. The wine is no longer in contact with the cork and the latter can only protect the wine when it is completely moist. To solve the problem, all you need to do is keep the bottle of wine upside down for a full day so that the cork is saturated again. You can now store it for a long time without worrying about any flaws. Just a reminder: a bottle of wine must be stored on its side. Alcohols and other liqueurs can be left standing as long as they have a cork closure.
