If you have fruit flies in your house, set an open bottle of wine on the counter. They will fly in but can't fly out and will drown.
If it's a colored wine - it's great for dying (staining) fabrics. I used a deep red wine to color some muslin and made some great looking curtains! Just let it soak to a shade slightly darker than what you want then wring it out and dry to set. (Use a cold water wash for care.) Worked great for me !!
If it is white wine it is great for getting red wine, grape juice, etc out of carpets...just pour it on and the stains disappear
Let it sit long enough and it will turn to vinegar, it may be already. It can be used as a household cleaner where ever vinegar would be used normally, one caution, if it's red, don't use it where it will stain.C
What about contacting the old owner. Maybe he would like it back or a neighbor that knew him would like to have it.
My neighbor worked for Gallo winery and said they used wine to clean the cement floor daily. I have heard that Thunderbird wine it is good for garage floors also with grease spills. I haven't tried it but what have you got to lose?
