Ask The Wine Ladies

Dear Wine Ladies,

I noticed your column in 24 a month or two ago and look forward to reading it now every Friday. I'd like to ask, once a bottle of wine is opened, and only half emptied, how long would it keep if re-corked, or had the air pumped out and capped? Is the best place in the fridge, or store at room temperature?

Dear Wine Ladies,

We're throwing a party over the holiday weekend to celebrate the move into our new home, which we have finally taken possession of. It's been a long while since we've entertained and are unsure as to how much wine to buy. Is there some kind of formula to figure out how much we will need?

Dear Wine Ladies,

We'll be lighting up the grill this Labor Day weekend and chilling with the whole family one last time before the leaves take a turn and the cooler nights descend upon us. We've got the menu set, Greek salad, grilled veggies including corn on the cob, chicken and barbeque ribs. To the wine, but which one? Mostly white wine drinkers we'd like to serve two whites, and one or two reds. Suggestions please?

Dear Wine Ladies,

War and Peace wine lists make me nervous. I don't know where to start and feel totally intimidated. I end up glossing over the pages taking way too much time trying to find something familiar and appropriate. Recently back on the dating scene, any advice on how to navigate such a wine list and order a suitable wine would be greatly appreciated.

Kevin, Chicago
