Coravin Wine Access System
Here’s an incredible innovation that may just preserve the concept of using corks for wine, rather than screwtops.
For the first time, wine enthusiasts will be able to enjoy wine by the glass, without committing to the whole bottle. The device is particularly good for wineries and wine bars that offer by-the-glass tasting.
The Coravin device "... solves the age-old problem that wine oxidizes after the cork is pulled," says CEO Nick Lazaris.
The Coravin has a thin needle that passes through the cork. The bottle is pressurized with argon, so no oxygen comes into contact with the wine. Once the needle is removed the cork reseals itself, and the wine can continue to age naturally.
World-famous wine writer Robert Parker calls the Coravin "... the most transformational and exciting new product for wine lovers that has been developed in the last 30-plus years."
