Have Leftover Wine? How to Freeze It for Later Use? Wine And Beverage Fridge
Yes, wine can be frozen, in a nutshell. Due to the alcohol concentration, it freezes at a lower temperature than water but will still do so at the typical household freezer temperature of 15 degrees F.
One of the things you should know if you're just starting out with wine is how to freeze it. Is freezing a bottle of wine an option if you have an open bottle and can't finish it in time to drink it or use it in cooking? What about wine that you unintentionally froze after putting it in the freezer for a brief cooling and then forgetting about it? Or perhaps you left it in the car's trunk on a chilly day? Is this bottle a lost cause, or can it still be defrosted and used for cooking or drinking?
Yes, wine can be frozen, in a nutshell. Due to the alcohol concentration, it freezes at a lower temperature than water but will still do so at the typical household freezer temperature of 15 degrees F. Red wine that has been frozen is safe to consume. However, after being frozen, it can be more suitable for cooking than drinking. Although freezing can change the flavour, most people only notice very small differences.

Here's how you can freeze wine at home:
• Choose whether you want to freeze your wine in large quantities or smaller portions, such as tablespoons. If choosing modest amounts, get an ice cube tray. Get a suitable plastic container if you want bigger quantities.
• Don't overfill the ice cube tray or container when adding the wine because it will expand somewhat when frozen.
• Put the container's lid on if it has one. Then, to prevent any unintended wine leaks, wrap it with a sheet of clingfilm.
• Wine should now be frozen by putting the container in the freezer.
How Long Can Wine Be Frozen?
The shelf life of frozen wine is three to six months if it is kept in an airtight container or freezer bag. Technically, it is still safe to use after that, but freezer burn may develop and taint the flavour.
How To Use Frozen Wine
A wine that has been frozen in modest quantities can be consumed right away. Simply substitute a cube or two for the cooking wine in your recipe. The ice wine is perfect for deglazing the pan after cooking meat because it will melt as soon as it comes into contact with a heated pan. To add a little depth of flavour, you can also add a few cubes to your favourite soup or stew.
