Once a wine bottle is opened, for how long can we drink the leftover wine ?

Question submitted by Sami

If you put the cork back in the bottle and put the bottle into the fridge, the wine is still drinkable for one or two days, even red wine. However it is recommended to let the red wine cool down out of the fridge one hour before serving.

However if you use a Vacuvin to protect the wine from oxygen, it will still be good for one week or so.
