Non- Jewish cleaner touching wine that is not mevushal


My non jewish cleaner was cleaning out a closet that had a bottle of wine in that i had forgotten to remove prior to her coming.. My wife came in the room and saw her holding the bottle as she was taking it out of the closet to clean it. The bottle was started and therefore not sealed. kosher or not?

many thanks


The wine is still permitted to drink. The wine would only become yayin nesech if the gentile would have shaken the bottle or actually touched the wine


Shulchan Aruch Y:D 124-18.
