Holland

Dancing at a lido in Eindhoven.
Holland is not known for wine. Havent looked in the wine atlas yet but there wasnt any available in the shops we visited. Had a nice mini on the train leaving Utrecht - Chilean Cabernet.
Someone told me they were concerned about the wine they were opening and wasting due to not drinking it all.
My advice is that good wine lasts a while anyway. Open wine ages at the rate of 1 year per day so even for whites this is acceptable for a day or two corked up in the fridge. It will lose some aromatics but on the other side, some wines will benefit from opening up.
Use common sense though, dont drink vinegar!!
