Here’s the right way to do it.
Make sure the wine is well chilled. Add ice if needed – the colder the better.
Carbonate in the Sodastream, but don’t release the pressure suddenly.
Release the pressure VERY SLOWLY, allowing the foam to settle before letting more gas out.
Once the pressure is released, enjoy your sparkling red wine.
Some wines take carbonation better than others. Chilling is important.
Keep the carbonated wine in the plastic bottle. Don’t put it back in the glass bottle in case the pressure breaks it. Remember that sparkling wine is more potent than unfizzy wine.
Please note that Sodastream only recommend that water is carbonated in their machines, so you do this at your own risk. I occasionally fill a bottle to the brim with water and deliberately purge it through the safety release valve to clean it. That’s not recommended practice though.
