I just bought a bottle of port from the Heitz winery and am wondering how quickly it needs to be drunk once the bottle has been opened.
Thanks so much for your help!
Tracy, if that's the Grignolino Port from Heitz, I believed it's made in the bottle-aged style and should be consumed shortly after opening. If it is of a recent vintage (e.g., 1997), it will not degrade too quickly if left open for 3 or 4 days and will hold together longer if you keep the open bottle in the refrigerator.
