I've also heard a bag of rice but a for a few days, but that's based on a phone that's been completely immersed in water, I'm guessing it wasn't a huge amount of red wine so it shouldn't be too bad. Good luck and comeback and let us know if it worked!

Ive heard about the rice, and its really supposed to work as long as it isnt too damaged. Are you covered under insurance?

You can try getting it dried up but if the phone is fragile with water, then it's done for. Look on the bright side, you didn't lose it or had it stolen so no worries about losing vital info.
