Coravin

Explore your wine collection glass by glass without sacrificing the whole bottle thanks to the Coravin system. Instead of removing the cork, this smart device inserts a thin, hollow needle through it to extract the wine, then pressurises the bottle with argo, ensuring the wine never comes into contact with oxygen. Once the needle is removed, the cork reseals itself. Perfect for those that enjoy an occasional glass but hate the inevitable pouring away that follows.
