Coravin Introduces New Needles for Vintage Corks and Faster Pours
Coravin, LLC, maker of the Coravin™ Wine System, which enables users to pour wine without pulling the cork, has introduced two new accessory needles for specific types of users with unique needs: the Vintage Cork Needle and the Faster Pour Needle.
Each Coravin System comes with a standard needle; a specially-coated, stainless steel needle that can be used to seamlessly access and pour wine without pulling the cork. For those looking to access their library of vintage wines, the new Vintage Cork Needle is thinner than the standard needle and designed specifically to access and pour from older bottles that may have a fragile cork. With its finer gauge, the Vintage Cork Needle is gentler on the cork when accessing, so it is less likely to cause damage or disruption.
The Coravin Faster Pour Needle is wider than the standard needle, and allows the user to pour a glass of wine more quickly. This needle is ideal for use in restaurants or wine bars, winery tasting rooms, wine stores or during dinner parties, when pour speed and timing matter.
“We are constantly looking to improve upon the Coravin user’s experience, helping them to easily access, pour, and enjoy their favorite wines at any time, under any circumstances,” said Vice President of Marketing, Howard Leyda. “We are committed to adding accessories to enhance the Coravin Wine System experience for every kind of wine lover, and with the introduction of these two needles, we hope to fulfill the needs of users who have been asking for ways to access older bottles, as well as those who desire or require a faster pour.”
