This summer I fell in love. I didn’t think it was possible, but I did. I fell in love with most amazing wine gadget. In this industry you come across a lot of wine gadgets.. some good, mostly bad. You become enamored, but not in love.
At the 2015 Wine Bloggers Conference, I witnessed an impossible feat. Well, what I thought was impossible. Pour a glass of wine without removing the cork. Yes, you read it correctly. The wine bottle opener permits you to pour wine with the cork remaining in the bottle. What wine bottle opener allows you to perform this action? It is a Coravin Wine System. Witness how the Coravin works.
I know this sounds like an infomercial, but it is the ultimate tool for a wine lover. Wine typically last 3 to 5 days once you remove the cork. The Coravin allows you to enjoy the wine longer. The wine is not exposed and your consumption time is lengthen. I fell in love when I learned this fact. I could enjoy a bottle of wine without worrying about it expiring. You had me at Coravin.
The Coravin can only be used on natural corks and not synthetic corks or screw tops. Also, avoid using the opener on sparkling wines. The Coravin retails at $299.00. It is an investment and cannot be compared to your typical wine bottle opener. The wine bottle opener is worth the investment for those who invest in their wine.
Treat the wine lover in your life, which may be you. You are worth it.
