Are you saving a special bottle of wine for the right occasion? Have you wasted a good bottle of wine because you couldn’t finish it in time? The moment you pop the cork off a wine bottle, the clock starts ticking. Within a few days, that beautiful bottle of merlot you just opened will sour quickly.
What if you can change all that? What if you can just drink a single glass of wine from any unopened bottle? Meanwhile, the remainder of the wine in the bottle can continue to age as if it has never been opened. This would definitely change the world of wine drinking forever. The Coravin wine system is the change we have all been waiting for.
How does the Coravin Wine System work?
The Coravin is a device that allows you to pour a glass of wine without removing the cork. It does this by using a tiny hollow needle to pierce through the cork without damaging it. At the same time, pressurized argon gas is injected into the bottle. The inert argon gas prevents oxygen from entering the wine bottle and thus prevents oxidation. It is the oxidation process that causes the wine to eventually go bad after it has been opened.
After pouring your glass of wine, the needle is extracted and the original wine cork seals itself airtight. Return the remaining wine bottle to the cellar. Hence, you can continue enjoying the bottle of wine on other future occasions. Imagine being able to enjoy any wine, any amount, without pulling a single cork.
Coravin compared to other wine preservation systems
There are other wine preservation systems out there of course. All of them use either a vacuum or argon gas to slow down the oxidation process. However, all of the other systems require for the cork to be removed thus compromising the wine. Coravin is the only system that does not require removing the cork. Thus, the wine is never exposed to oxygen. Other wine preservation systems may extend the wine shelf life by up to 2 weeks or a month at most. Coravin can extend it up to years.
It must be noted that Coravin works best with natural corks as when the needle is extracted, natural corks reseal properly. Synthetic corks may have problems with resealing. Therefore, the wine may still go bad or even leak from the bottle.
What if your wine uses a screw cap instead of a cork? You can still use the Coravin system by replacing the original screw cap with a Coravin Screw Cap accessory. This special cap seals itself just like a cork. However, since you have to open the wine to replace the cork, the wine can only last up to 3 months. This is still considerably longer than other wine preservation systems.
Which Coravin system is right for you?
Coravin produces a few different models of their wine system. They are all very similar when it comes to its main function of pouring wine from a sealed bottle. The top of the line Model Eleven comes with Bluetooth connectivity and an app that tells you when the device requires charging or if the cartridge requires replacing.
No longer do you have to agonize over which wine bottle to open. No longer do you have to compromise with your spouse or other dinner guests over which bottle to choose. You can now always select the perfect bottle of wine for your food pairing.
With the Coravin system, it is possible for a restaurant to sell their entire wine inventory by the glass. Many establishments are now finding new income streams by selling more of their inventory by the glass. The risk of wastage is also lower. Customers have a wider range of wine to choose from.
Best of all, saving a bottle of wine for a special occasion may be a thing of the past. Why save when every day is special?
