Good call, Jenny! If you're worrying about keeping wine around for cooking, pour what's left in your bottle into an extra ice cube tray and freeze it. When it's solid, you can pop them out and store them in a zip lock bag, labeled, of course, with what kind of wine it is... Keeps indefinitely.
Around our house, tho, the wine rarely lasts that long....
For storing wine to drink "later," get yourself a Vacu-Vin. It's a contraption that comes with a couple of stoppers that you put into the bottle where the cork was, and use the contraption to drain the oxygen out of the bottle. Using that, I've successfully kept wine (in the fridge) for as long as 5 days.
