Have you ever opened a bottle of wine, stuck in back in the fridge, only to have it go bad before it you can finish it? It happens. The Coravin Model Two seeks to change that. Claiming to be the first ever bottle opener that lets you pour a glass of wine without ever removing the cork, the Coravin Model Two features a needle that instead punctures through the cork, without breaking the airtight seal. It then uses pressurized argon gas (in canisters similar to that of C02) to pour the wine through the needle, while leaving the cork and seal intact. Using argon gas – which is actually used in winemaking itself – instead of oxygen helps prevent the wine from oxidizing and ruining its unique flavors. You can then put your bottle of wine back and store it as if had never been touched and will keep fresh for months.
The Properfit Clamp ensures that it gets a tight fit on every bottle, with textured rubber grips that fit snuggly around the bottle neck for a tight hold and pour. The new and improved needle pours 20% faster than their older model. Each capsule of air will pour approximately 15 5-ounce glasses of wine.
Convinced yet? You’ve probably never actually thought about needing a bottle opener like this before, and yes – it is an expensive bottle opener. But we can’t really think of a better way to complete a bar set. So go ahead and pour yourself a glass; that expensive bottle of Cabernet will taste just as good a month from now as it does unopened; you’ll never waste a perfectly good bottle of wine again.
