How long does a box of wine stay fresh?!

Question: How long does a box of wine stay fresh!?
Iv heard that a open box of wine will stay fresh for up to 3 months after its opened!.!.!.!.!.!.Is this true!? Way or why not!?

Please list your sources!!! Thanks a bunch!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Since I'm the only one in my house who drinks wine, I've had it last me about 5 or 6 months!. The reason it lasts so long, is because the air never gets into the pouch inside the box!. The spigot keeps the air out, as long as you keep wine at the spigot!.

Should air get into the wine, and it turns, you can always use it for cooking!. Slightly "vinegar" tasting wine, will still impart a terrific flavor to your soup stock and pasta sauces!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I don't have any sources except personal experience!. I have had boxes of wine open for over three months and still have had them be good!. As a previous poster said, it's the air that kills wine and the boxes do a good job of not letting air in!. That's one of the reasons I really like boxed wine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Franzia says 6 weeks on their web site!.

The reason for the difference between regular bottle wine (a week or so) and box wine is the plastic "bladder" inside the wine box!. When you let wine out, the plastic collapses instead of letting air in!. Air is the flavor killer, and box wines are quite good at keeping it out!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The whole reason that wine never goes above 13% alcohol content is because that's the point where the yeast die!. It kills bacteria, too!. Wine usually doesn't spoil!. I don't think boxed wine is any different!. I would just take a tiny sip!. If it tastes normal it's drinkable!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Emmmm box of wine,
In my best Homer Simpson impersonation!Www@FoodAQ@Com
