While oxygen is a good thing for a nice red wine when you first open the bottle it is not a good thing for a bottle of wine that needs to be kept after opening. Many singles and even couples face this problem each time they open a new bottle. With research showing how a glass of wine a day has so many health benefits this leaves a bottle of wine open but not completely drunk.
One of the wine accessories that should not be skimped on is a quality wine stopper for just the purpose of preserving those open bottles of wine. Not all stoppers are made the same and to keep oxygen from being allowed to leak into the bottle will help preserve the flavor.
Those who only want to enjoy a good tasting glass of wine each evening with dinner or before bed for their health can keep that wine from oxygenating with a tight fitting stopper. With the use of a good stopper each glass of wine will taste just as good as the first making a stopper one of the most important wine accessories that anyone can buy.
