No more stressing about finishing that bottle of wine because a new wine preservation device has seeped into the market.
The Coravin Pivot Wine Preservation System by global wine tech company Coravin Inc., which preserves still wines for up to a month, has launched in Singapore through retailer 1855 The Bottle Shop.
The brand’s latest invention was conceived for regular wine drinkers who feel pressured to finish the entire bottle within the five-day period before it turns bad.
The box consists of the Pivot Device, reusable Pivot Stoppers and one capsule of argon gas, which prevents oxygen from affecting the wine. One gas capsule can pour 20 glasses of 150ml wine. Subsequently, users can purchase the capsules in packs of three and more from S$46.
To use, users need to first replace the cork or screw cap with the airtight stopper after opening the bottle. Then, unscrew the capsule cup on the device’s handle, slot in the argon capsule and twist it to close. Insert the device through the stopper, tilt the bottle over a glass and then press the button to release the argon gas which will pour the wine out. Make sure to cap the stopper after and enjoy the wine for up to a month.
The brand has more advanced devices that preserve still wines for over three years and has a separate one for sparkling wines which use carbon dioxide gas instead.
The device retails at S$215 (US$152) and also comes in a bundle with a bottle of wine for S$325 (US$230) available at all 1855 The Bottle Shop outlets.
