Coravin 1000 Wine Preserving Bottle Opener
We all know how difficult is to preserve wine once the cork has been popped. There are a ton of products out there that claim to prevent the wine from oxidizing once the bottle has been opened, but the Coravin is the first one we’ve seen that might actually work as advertised.
This ingenious little device allows you to drink from your vintage wine bottles, without ever having to open the bottle. The Coravin drives a thin, hollow needle right through the cork in order to pump argon right into the wine (as oppose to oxygen). Argon is an inert gas, and won’t affect the taste of the wine one bit. It will however provide pressure for the wine to pour right through that hollow needle without ever allowing oxygen to come in contact with the spirit. When you’re done drinking, simply remove the needle, and the cork will expand to seal that hole you just created, leaving you free to throw that bottle back on the shelf for as long as you’d like.
