Wine lovers rejoice! Introducing the Coravin 1000, a high-tech gadget that lets you pour wine without ever uncorking the bottle. How? The device basically inserts an extremely thin needle through the cork, enabling users to remove liquid, while replacing the displaced air with inert argon gas, preventing oxidation. This needle is so thin that the cork reseals itself once it’s removed. Continue reading for a video and more information.
According to Like Cool, “the science behind the system is a simple matter of preventing the inevitable chemical reaction between wine and oxygen. Normally, when you pop the cork on a bottle, the wine tannins inside the bottle begin to interact with the oxygen in a process called oxidation.”
