Question by gkrbh: What is the best way to store mulled wine? Should I refrigerate it to minimise bacterial growth?
I made the wine 2-3 weeks ago and have kept it in stoppered bottles at room temperature, before giving as gifts. I assumed room temp would be okay, seeing that red wine is not normally refrigerated, but I wondered if the handling and bottling process might have introduced contamination that could be minimised by colder storage.
Answer by Iris
The spices and alcoholic content should be enough to keep it from going bad.
