That's it really!

Not sure if you can!

ElizabethHoover Thu 18-Dec-14 18:37:58

why?

Sparkling wine doesn't keep.

Why would you want to? I like to drink it!

CarcerDun Thu 18-Dec-14 18:38:52

Why on earth would you want to?

insancerre Thu 18-Dec-14 18:39:54

I don't understand the question

glentherednosedbattleostrich Thu 18-Dec-14 18:40:42

Buy lots of bottles?

Stick a teaspoon in it and leave it in the fridge is what I do.

To keep it cold between glasses.

PrincessOfChina Thu 18-Dec-14 18:42:47

I'd just drink it all.

Add peach juice to make a bellini/orange juice to make a bucks fizz to eke it out further?

To keep it more than one day once it's been opened, put a teaspoon in the top and put it in the fridge - it'll keep for a couple of days.

If you open it at lunch time you could make it last till teatime

I use a wine stopper (the type that forms a full seal but even that comes off in the fridge sometimes). You can drink it the next day but it does taste a bit flat. If there is a just one glass left I often freeze it and use it for making gravy at a later point.

The teaspoon stops it going flat. Or at least slows it down: I can't vouch for more than 2 days as it never lasts any longer than that in our house!

Only open the Champagne?

You can get a special stopper for sparkling wine.

One of those wine seal things, ILs gave us one for xmas last year. Before that Id id the teaspoon thing, which does buy you an extra day.

You can buy rubber things that you put in the top of the bottle and a thing which pumps the air out. It works well. Sorry that is a rubbish description but i do not know a better way to explain it.

HuevosRancheros Fri 19-Dec-14 18:17:19

no, you don't want the pumping-air-out one, that'll make it go fla (sucks out the bubbles)t.
You need a special champagne one that just twists to seal

HuevosRancheros Fri 19-Dec-14 18:18:08

sorry, brackets in wrong place there.
really should preview first
or save some of the prosecco for later

TalkinPeace Fri 19-Dec-14 18:35:25

Drink the cava first?
Seriously
I used to work in the wine trade and we used "bochons" to seal sparkling bottles that were going to be in use for an all day trade tasting

then after a cock up forgot them we realised that decent fizzy left in a cool place undisturbed will take about 6-8 hours to go flat

vacuvin will kill fizzy wine in an instant

Showy Fri 19-Dec-14 18:38:05

Ooh is it wine? Somebody has given dh a bottle as a thank you and we're teetotal. We can't give it away, our friends and family weren't interested. I'm thinking of just offering it to passers by.

If you're in NW Norfolk and want a bottle of whatever Prosecco is, please take it from me.

Second the teaspoon in the top. I worked for a fancy wine place once and a Master of Wine passed on that tip.

iwantavuvezela Fri 19-Dec-14 18:44:41

Third the teaspoon in the open bottle, the bubbles will keep and will last in the fridge

EmilyAlice Fri 19-Dec-14 18:45:46

My bottle of Cava blew its stopper out in the fridge in the middle of last night and woke us up with a bang. grin
Put it back in the morning snd still fizzy this evening though.
When will Lidl's have their Prosecco in again?
