Pellegrino bottle best way to store wine

A little something I experimented with late last week: I opened up a groovy, green, bottle-cap bottle of Hofer 2005 Gruner Veltliner, the super acidic, slightly overpriced, peppery white from Austria. Unsure how to store the rest of the divine liquid, I dumped out an old bottle of Pellegrino, long gone flat, poured the Gruner Veltliner in, and tightly closed the cap.

I’ve been enjoying it every night since, and it’s holding up marvelously in my refrigerator. It’s Tuesday night people. You’d never get that with a cork!

I bought the Hofer at Monterey Street Wine Co in San Luis Obispo by the way, but I’ve heard you can find it at Vino! and Paul Marcus Wines in Oakland, and at the Wine Merchant in the Ferry Building in SF.
