How Long Does Unopened Wine Last?

Under optimal circumstances, an unopened bottle of wine can last for years, even decades. From your everyday table wine to a precious bottle of vintage Port, the shelf life of unopened wine is influenced by several factors.

Some wines are made to be consumed immediately. Others, like fine wine or aged wine, can improve with time. Wine doesn’t ‘expire’ in the traditional sense. Instead, it loses its character and vibrancy, rendering it dull and unpalatable. The shelf life, or how long wine lasts, is based on the average type of wine:

Red Wine: 2 to 10 years or more depend to grape varietals/producer

White Wine: 1 to 5 years or more depend to grape varietals/region

Sparkling Wine: 1 to 5 years or more depend to region/grape varietals/vintages

Fortified/Dessert Wine: 2 to 20 years or more depend to the quality of fermentation/winemaking/region/vintageRemark: Storing/cellaring for all the above depend to the storage quality, temperature/surrounding
