Coravin Model Two Plus Pack Wine Preservation System

The Model Two is the best of Coravin’s wine access system. This cool device lets you partake in a glass (or two) of your favorite vino of an evening, without spoiling the whole bottle.

If you do decide to have “one-more-for-the-road, the Coravin Model Two Wine System allows effortless pouring without any need to remove the cork.

This ingenious device uses a special wine needle, which actually slides alongside the cork and into the wine so gently that the seal does not break after the needle is removed. The back end of the needle inserts into the easy-to-squeeze clamp, which fits tightly around the bottleneck for a secure hold.

The unit is powered by pressurized Coravin Capsules, which are that are filled with argon gas to allow wine to be drawn from the bottle while keeping all oxygen out. This awesome bundle includes the Model Two unit, 2 argon capsules, 3 different needles, and a good-looking carrying case, for tippling on-the-go!

The standard needle is the toughest and fits the vast majority of bottles of wine, the faster pour needle is thinner to let the wine flow faster, and the vintage needle is for older or strangely-shaped bottles.

Vintorio Wine Aerator & Pourer

What the heck is it and why do you need one? OK…..so you’ve got guests over for a swanky dinner party and you want to make the right impression with a perfectly served glass of wine.

The vast majority of wine-buffs recommend that you purchase a wine aerator (and actually a wine decanter, too). By using an aerator and decanter together, it will make your $40 bottle of wine live up to its price tag, instead of tasting like a $10 bottle.

Aerators work by helping the air filter into the wine. Yes, wine can aerate naturally if left to sit for an hour or two, but what about if you need to aerate it more quickly. That’s why every home should have an aerator on “stand-by” for unexpected and thirsty guests!

They prongs spread out as they are pushed into the bottle, enabling you to “fish out” that pesky cork. Once the cork is safely in the prongs, just give a tug on the handle and you can pull out the offending article.

At such a tiny price, who wouldn’t want this wine-saving device sitting around for when the worst wine emergency arises!!!
