I have a bottle of wine in my fridge that was given to me last christmas. It is not opened. My mother is having a dinner get together and i was going to bring it so it could get drank, but I don't want to bring it if it is going to be bad LOL. I know nothing about wine and dont' drink it. Any ideas?

Don't take it! Give it to your boyfriend's mom.

What kind of wine is it? And what colour?

White wine kept cool should be ok.

If it's red, shame on you for putting it in the fridge :)

if you open it and it doesnt taste good, its not bad, but its now great for cooking instead of drinking. I use it to meat tenderize steak. lol

it is white wine, not red and it all tastes gross to me. So tasting it would be useless. It is a dry white.

It's air, heat and changes in temperature that turn wine. White is more stable than red.

Now if it was a bad wine to begin with...

dry white will be fine, for people who like dry white, refridgeration won't hurt

If it's never been opened it should be fine.

Wine should never be stored in your fridge. Keep it in a cool place but not in your fridge, and especially not upright in your fridge. When it is upright the dry atmosphere of the fridge will dry out the cork, causing it to leak. Wine should also never be stored upright for the same reason, the fridge is just worse.
Saying that, if it is less than a year then it should be fine.

Drink it before you have to "frig" it. Red wine should always be at room temp anyhow.

I thought that as long as it is not opened it is ok. I thought the older the wine the better and some wine is like 20-30 years old and really expensive.
