For centuries, the cork had to be removed in order to enjoy a glass of wine-that era is over. The Coravin System is a transformational new technology that allows users to pour wine while keeping the cork in the bottle, where it’s been since it was first sealed in the winery. Now you can enjoy your favorite and finest wines by the glass whenever you like, and feel confident that your wine will be protected until the next glass is poured. Now you can enjoy the same bottle, or bottles, on multiple occasions, over weeks, months, or even longer.
How do we do it?
The Coravin System inserts a thin, hollow needle through the cork. The bottle is then 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. After your wine is poured, the needle is removed, and the cork reseals itself. The Coravin 1000 works best with natural cork closures, including agglomerated or multi-piece natural cork. It is not intended for use on synthetic closures since they are unlikely to re-seal completely. If you do use the system with a synthetic closure, store the bottle upright afterwards. Synthetic closures will permit some oxidation, and may result in leakage when stored or poured. The Coravin 1000 System cannot be used with metal, glass or screw top closures.
The Coravin System provides a whole new way of experiencing wine like you’ve never been able to before. Go ahead, be adventurous
