    Most commercial wine makers (non-organic) add sulphites as a preservative. Sulphites kill off anything live in the wine and are also not too healthy for you. However, if your wine isn’t keeping for at least a couple of years without spoiling, try a denser cork (the cheaper corks sometimes aren’t completely airtight.) The bottle should be stored on it’s side to keep the cork moist (and plump enough to be airtight) and store at around 50 degrees.
