What is best for use as a wine stopper?!

Question: What is best for use as a wine stopper!?
so in the past i have used the corks from the bottle, the screw cap (as much as i don't like them) and wine stoppers i have been given or bought!.

my dad has always used a plastic thing which has a valve which he uses something to suck the air out of!. is this the best way!?

or should i stick with the cork!? or wine stoppers!?

and does it really change how long the wine stays good for!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

From studies I've seen the vacuum stoppers and the nitrogen fillers plus refrigeration will help for a few days, perhaps up to a week!. They actually just slow down the wine losing flavor, so it's a losing battle no matter what, and they tended to work better on whites than reds!.

The only surefire system is to rebottle the wine in a smaller bottle with a real cap!. I suppose if you were opening some really expensive wine it'd be worth it, but generally I'll just finish the bottle!. That's why I love to find cheap but tasty wines!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Don't bother with stoppers, Only open a bottle if you are going to finish it!.
Seriously, though, white wine doesn't keep so finish it!. Red wine will be OK for a couple of days even without a seal, in fact, in my opinion always tastes better the day after!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You really should finish a bottle within a day of opening it!. If you do that, it doesn't really matter what you use!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Dont know never had a use for one of these!. We always finish the bottle!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
