Halacha - wine
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: if someone has goishe helping aid who comes and cleans the house what is the halocho if she touches bottle of wine that was not mevushal
Answer:

If the wine was in a closed container it is permitted even to drink the wine, but if the bottle was open it is forbidden. If the non-Jew was alone unsupervised in the house with wine that is not closed with two seals, it may be forbidden.

It should be pointed out that many wines (at least in Eretz Yisroel) that are labeled as being not mevushal are in fact pasteurized at a temperature that R' Moshe Feinstein zatzal considers to render the wine mevushal, but the Israeli hechsherim are machmir for R' Eliyashiv shlita and others who require a higher temperature. So if you have a situation where you would have to through out non-mevushal wine, you would first want to find out if it was pasteurized and at what temperature.
