From the Test KitchenQuick Tip: Wine on Reserve
  • When calling on wine for recipes, you needn't pull out your very best bottle, but don't use an inferior wine, either. The general rule is that any wine you use in cooking should be good enough to drink. Consider using the same wine you plan to drink with dinner in your recipe. Or, next time you enjoy a winebut don't quite finish the bottlepour the remaining wine into a smaller container (air is the culprit that makes good wine go stale). Store it in the refrigerator to help keep it fresh.
