All About Coravin Capsules
We have already shared some helpful tips on the Coravin blog for how to get the most out of your Coravin Capsules. But there are many more reasons why Coravin Capsules are unique. An integral part of the Coravin Technology, the capsules are specifically designed for use with the Coravin System, ensuring the perfect seal and the perfect pour every time.
Coravin Capsules contain Argon gas for the best protection of your wine, a proprietary cap to ensure the proper seal, and have a multi-glass capacity that yields approximately fifteen 5-ounce pours.
Why Coravin Capsules?
Coravin Capsules are unlike any other pressurized cylinder of argon gas available for purchase. We developed these specifically for use with the Coravin System, to ensure the highest quality and functionality of the Coravin Capsules from first to last glass.
We work very closely with the supplier who produces the argon gas cylinders used to make Coravin Capsules. We have a collaborative relationship with them, and they have designed custom-tests just for us, to ensure superior quality and durability of Coravin Capsules. Here are some examples:
- - All Coravin Capsules are infrared-tested for cleanliness before being filled with argon gas. Not only do our Capsules meet the minimum food-grade cleanliness requirements, but they exceed the minimum cleanliness requirement by about 75%.
- - The cylinder construction for the Capsules are pressure-tested, and designed to safely contain the high pressures (2600 PSI) in the Coravin Capsules.
- - 100% safety testing is conducted for all Capsules, which are all 100% safe for storage in any environment you may encounter.
- - Our Capsules undergo custom-implemented Organoleptic testing to detect and prevent any impurities in the argon, which could affect the taste or smell of wine.
