About 23 degrees Fahrenheit Wine is a water based solution containing ethanol (and various other solutes), it has to get colder than the freezing point of water (32 F or 0 C) .Generally wine will freeze around 20 F (-7 C) depending on the type of wine.

Household freezers can range from 5-8 degrees Fahrenheit which is lower than the temp range it takes for wine to freeze. The water in the wine will expand into ice crystals (water is fairly unique in that it expands as it freezes) and since the volume of the bottle is nearly constant, the pressure will increase; possibly dislodging the cork.

Pure ethanol has a freezing point of approximately -173.2 degrees Fahrenheit. The water, however, will freeze at 32 F.

You may calculate the actual freezing point depression of wine using Kfp X msolute where Kfp is the Freezing Point constant of water (-1.86 C/m), and m is the molality of the solute (ethanol).

Can wine freeze?

Yes it can. As any compound containing water, wine can freeze.

Does freezing wine remove alcohol?

No, just as a rotten chicken being frozen. It doesn't make it better. So if you freeze wine with alcohol, The alcohol actually stays longer.

Temperature of freezing?

Each material has a different melting point (this term is preferred to freezing). See an encyclopedia for values.

Can you freeze wine?

Yes, as it is liquid and partially water, you can freeze wine. There are a few major problems with this though, namely it wouldn't taste at all the same (or good) once thawed

Can you freeze wine and then remove the alcohol?

other way around, to remove alcohol you distill (boil). freeze an alcohol and what you are actually doing is freezing the water in the drink, thus increasing the potency of th

What is the temperature for freezing?

It is easy for everyone to know. Water freezes at 0 degrees Celsius. (if that's how you spell it). The temperature is very cold, so it freezes the water.
