If you’re a wine enthusiast, it can be hard to believe that you’d ever have leftover wine. In fact, I’m a wine enthusiast, and occasionally find that I have some leftover wine after a party. You can actually freeze the wine to use later (it won’t be good to drink, but it will be fine to add to recipes). Here’s a good tutorial on how to freeze wine, from The Art of Doing Stuff. And here are 100 recipes with leftover red wine (click on the titles to get to the recipe).
