"The most transformational and exciting new product for wine lovers that has been developed or invented in the last 30+ years."Robert Parker, The Wine AdvocateOver the summer we began hearing about a new "wine access" system called Coravin that would allow users to draw wine out of the bottle without removing the cork. Without removing the cork? Yes, we had to read it twice as well. With this invention you could easily enjoy a glass of wine from your favorite bottle, return it to your cellar, then enjoy another glass from that same bottle weeks, even months, later, without compromising quality. After looking into it a little we found that none other than Robert Parker, world renowned wine critic, had raved about this new invention on his website, saying, "I can't tell you how impressed I am with the technology and how well it works." Sounded too good to be true, so we decided to buy one and try it out for ourselves. The results are pretty amazing.So, what exactly is Coravin and how does it work?Coravin was invented by a medical-device entrepreneur who used his background in vascular technology to create a device that allows you to pour wine from a bottle without removing the cork and, most importantly, without exposing the wine to any air. Insert the needle through the foil and into the cork, and any wine that leaves the bottle is replaced by argon gas. Once the needle is removed from the cork, the natural properties of the cork allow it to be sealed up immediately. The wine stays fresh, and you get to enjoy every last drop, whenever your heart desires. Every unit comes with two argon capsules. Each capsule allows you to access roughly 15 glasses of wine (5oz. pours). CW cannot legally ship the argon capsules so therefore Coravin is only available for in-store purchase.
