If you’ve ever wanted to enjoy a world class bottle of wine a little longer you’re not alone. The prices of exceptional wines be they Chateau Margaux, Petrus or some other personal favorite can be significant and enjoying them a glass a time could be a real advantage.
Enter the Coravin Wine-Access System, a device that makes it possible to to pour wine without having to pull the cork.
The Coravin 1000 System (sold in the U.K. by Harrods), utilizes a thin, hollow needle which is inserted through the cork to extract the wine. You don’t need to remove the foil, or the cork, to access the wine.
Then the bottle is pressurized with argon, an inert gas that’s in the air we breathe. Once the bottle has been pressurized, the wine flows through the needle and pours into your glass.
Lastly, when the Coravin System and its needle are removed, the cork reseals itself. The remaining wine never comes in contact with oxygen, and continues to evolve naturally.
Price: £269 (two-capsule packs available at £15.95) In the North America please visit the Coravin website to order.
