Pro Tips
Straining the wine immediately after cooking prohibits over saturation of the spice flavors.
Also the fruit will absorb the wine leaving less to drink if they are combines and sitting for a long time.
Wine may be kept on the WARM setting however there will be evaporation both of the alcohol content of the wine and the liquid.
