The moment you open a bottle of wine, it starts to deteriorate. Within a few short days, that beautiful bottle of wine will go bad due to oxidation. Don’t let this stop you from enjoying your wines. With a wine preserver like Vacu Vin, you can extend the shelf life of your wine up to a week.
Wine goes bad due to chemical reaction with the oxygen in the air. It is a process known as oxidation. The Vacu Vin wine saver is able to slow down the oxidation process simply by removing the air inside the bottle.
The device is basically a vacuum pump with a universal bottle stopper with a valve. After you are done with drinking a newly opened bottle of wine, just replace the cork with the included bottle stopper. Attach the Vacu Vin pump to the stopper and pump out the air from the bottle. Once an airtight seal is formed, you will hear a click.
Store the wine bottle upright to prevent the wine from coming in contact with the stopper. When you are ready to drink again, just depress the stopper slightly to break the airtight seal. Then gently pull the stopper out. The bottle stoppers are reusable and you can buy extra stoppers.
The Vacu Vin wine saver system is able to preserve your wines up to about a week. And it does this fairly well for a device that costs under $15. If you plan to keep your half finished wine bottles for longer periods of time, you will need a system that uses argon gas like the Coravin Wine System.
