Enjoying great food and wine doesn't have to end when the last fork falls at the holiday dinner table. In fact, next day leftovers can be as inspired as the actual holiday food spread. And, just like food, wine can be preserved for three to five days by simply recorking and refrigerating. If you have a variety of leftover wines or want to try a new wine with your next-day meal, check out this handy matcher.
