Does freezing damage wine?

Does wine expire?
Wine does expire, but it strongly depends on its quality. If it’s a quality one, it can be stored even for a hundred years and after opening it’ll be of great quality. Cheap wines, on the other hand, should be used within a few years. That’s true for white, red, and sparking wine.
Does freezing wine make it stronger?
The freezing of wine would be an inefficient way to extract alcohol. To freeze, the alcohol content must be significantly colder. The alcohol content of the drained wine would be higher if you drained the slush and left behind the ice. You won’t get pure ethanol, but stronger wine instead.
Will wine explode in a cold car?

Does cold temperature ruin red wine?
If you live in a colder climate, you may be wondering how the cold affects your wine. The good news is that cool temperatures are not nearly as dangerous to wine as heat. As long as the wine is gradually cooled and does not experience a sharp drop in temperature, the cold will not affect the aging process.
