How Coravin is Saving Vintage Wine Bottles, One Cork at a Time

Corked wine is a major bummer among wine aficionados. Removing the cork from a bottle means exposure to air, which in turn lends to oxidization and the spoilage of flavors. That might not mean much for the bottle of 2013 rosé from Napa you just picked up, but when you’re dealing with a luxurious Grand Cru Burgundy from the 1980s, the risk of spoilage becomes much greater (unless you drink it in one sitting). That’s why Coravin, a wine tool that uses a gas-injected needle to pump wine from a bottle without breaking the cork seal, has become quite popular since hitting the market last year.
