If you've ever opened a bottle of wine and only had one glass, you've probably been disappointed a few days later to find the taste is no longer what it was. Opened wine can oxidize, resulting in an off taste within a matter of days. In the past, this could have led to pressure to finish a bottle of wine in one night or risk pouring it (and the money you spent on it) down the drain. Now there is a product on the market that allows you to pour your wine with actually removing the bottle's cork. In other words, your bottle of wine can last you longer without risk of getting stale.
Coravin's Model One Wine System uses a thin needle to gently penetrate the wine bottle's cork to access your wine. Simply position the Coravin System on top of the cork and push the needle through. Then, with the bottle at a 45-degree angle, you can press the trigger to pressurize it and then release it to pour wine into your glass. On average, you can pour a serving of wine in 25 to 29 seconds when using this system. To remove the needle, just pull the Coravin System straight up, and the cork will reseal naturally! Premium Coravin Capsules contain argon gas, which is used in the winemaking process, to protect the wine remaining in the bottle. Each capsule allows you to pour up to 15 five-ounce glasses of wine.
Each Coravin Model One Wine System weighs less than one pound. It comes in a white and blue design. The handle has a soft-touch grip to make it easy to pour your wine. This comes with two Coravin Capsules and a needle cleaning tool. Reviewers love this gadget, whether they personally just drink one glass of wine a night, like to host wine tastings, or like to pair different wines with different courses of their meals. Most found it easy to use. Coravin notes that the resealing only works with natural (not synthetic) cork so keep that in mind. Coravin offers a one-year warranty on this product.
