Generally speaking, no. In most cases, the wine goes through complete fermentation, which means there is no sugar left over.

However, sometimes to balance out the acidity, the winemaker will choose to stop fermentation early in order to save a little bit of the sugar.

We will always let you know if a wine has any sugar, but most often it will not.

Sulfite (aka sulfur dioxide, SO2) is an antioxidant and antibacterial that helps preserve a wine.

Wine is a very volatile substance, and without sulfites, wine would not last long after bottling. Sulfites can be found in wine as a natural byproduct of fermentation and can be added artificially by the winemaker.

We try to source wines with minimal added sulfites. Whenever possible, we will list the amount of free SO2 inside each bottle in the bottle description.

1. You are forgetting to drink enough water while drinking wine because it is so delicious and thirst quenching.

2. You are drinking a wine with a lot of residual sugar, but you don't know it because it's not required to be on the label.

3. You are part of the 1% with a sulfite intolerance.

4. You are drinking mass-produced, commoditized wine which may have up to 72 different additives.

5. You are drinking wine sourced from an inorganic farm that is sprayed with an ungodly amount of pesticides, herbicides, and inorganic fertilizer that makes its way into the end product.

It varies. A high-acid red with high tannins will keep the longest while a low-acid white (or a natural wine) will degrade the quickest.

We say 3 days for red, 2 days for white, and 1 day for natural/low-sulfite wine.

However, we recommend that everyone get either a Coravin or a cheaper oxygen-removing tool to ensure your wine stays fresh as long as possible.

No! Although, some wines REALLY need to be. In this case, we will let you know and for how long.

Most wines off the store shelf will taste fine out of the bottle, but decanting can be fun and if you are having people over, it looks nice too.

We always recommend a wine glass with a stem because your hand's temperature will warm up your wine, and this isn't ideal.

However, wine can and should be had in all different types of vessels depending on the environment! Tailgating? Canned wine! Tailgaiting in Florida? Red Solo Cup!

Because wine is expensive to make!

There are so many factors that play into the price of a bottle of wine: agricultural land cost, labor, materials, marketing, distribution, retail, transportation, licensing, taxes, fees, extreme climactic events, and more.
