It’s not often we have an expensive bottle of wine in my house, but when we do we are forced to make the ultimate decision: should we open and drink it or save it? Unlike some newer bottles, once an expensive, aging bottle is opened it must be fully consumed or the remaining wine will go bad very quickly. With the newest gadget from Coravin, we no longer have to make that dreadful decision.

Introducing the Coravin 1000 Wine System, the wine saving gadget. Using some simple science and incredible design and engineering, this device keeps corked bottles of wine from going bad after just one glass. Whether you’re looking to add more variety to your dinner party, hate wasting wine, or would like to please each of your guests, the Coravin 1000 is a great solution. It’s a wonder no one has thought of this before.

This handheld gadget may perform a complex action but it’s easy to use. Fitting in your hand and equipped with a needle, you simply pull the trigger to access the wine. To begin, you press the need of the Coravin 1000 into the cork of the wine bottle. Once the cork is breached, the needle creates a small sprout to pour out exactly as much wine as you need. The trigger, pressed by your thumb, initiates the pouring of the wine.

The Coravin 1000 works seamlessly to preserve your wine. Although the needle penetrates the cork, this device still manages to keep any air from getting into the bottle and therefore prevents oxidization. Hidden inside the Coravin 1000 is a capsule filled with argon gas. For every drop of delicious wine that is poured from the bottle, the exact same measure of argon replaces it. Due to its noble gas properties, argon keeps your wine fresh for the next glass.

The Coravin 1000 Wine System is now available for all of those that enjoy their wine. The price tag may seem a bit steep for a small gadget, but keep in mind that it will work to preserve all those expensive wines you refuse to open, therefore extending their lives for much, much longer. I’d say that’s worth it!
