Marsala wine

I want to make Chicken Marsala. Where do I store the bottle of Marsala, and how long will it keep? Thanks!

Marsala wine, which is similar to a fortified port, is kept at a cool room temperature. Until opened, it should last for a very long time, but once it's opened, personally, I would use it or drink it within a month or two, keeping it cool but not refrigerated.

Okay, thank you. Saves me wasting it. Maybe veal marsala in a couple weeks. I started buying dry red and whites in these little 4 packs, so I can only use what I need and keep the rest for later. But these aren't available for Marsala. I'm just not a big drinker. Thanks, again

I actually find that Marsala keeps for years pretty much even after opened as long as it is stored in a cool dark place.

My Marsala never lasts long...
I like dessert wines like that, and sherry, so they get sampled often, LOL!

Don't you know an excuse in order to have a "sip" every other night or two!? Particularly with sponge cake and ice cream.

Let me amend my previous statement then and agree with Selkie

There are two types of marsalas, sweet and dry. Dry marsala is used for savory dishes like veal/chicken marsala and sweet marsala is used for desserts.

Either will keep for a long time in a cool dark spot.

The cheaper cooking wines of either type will last a year at least.
A good bottle for sippin and cooking will lose a lot after a month or two.I treat port like wine and make sure it is gone before anything can change it.(The sun rising for example)
