The main thrust of Corwin’s wine preservation system is that it allows you to pour from any bottle without removing or damaging the cork. It accomplishes this by inserting a hollow needle to extract the alcohol. Before pouring, the device also sends out argon, an inert gas, to pressurize the bottle and prevent oxidation of what’s left. When used properly, the Coravin system can preserve wines – reds, whites and anything in between – for months or even years.

Corwin is a total game-changer for serious drinkers.
