CORAVIN ANNOUNCES INTERNATIONAL AVAILABILITY OF ITS POPULAR WINE SYSTEM
Burlington, Mass., October 17, 2013 – Coravin, LLC announced today that it has begun accepting orders on its website (www.coravin.com) from customers in a variety of international markets in Asia, Europe and South America. The popular Coravin™ Wine System allows wine enthusiasts around the globe to pour wine without pulling the cork. Just three months after launching the game-changing wine system in the U.S., Coravin is responding to a rapidly growing overseas demand by giving international consumers, as well as commercial restaurants and wineries, access to the Coravin 1000.
Launched in July 2013 in the U.S., the Coravin 1000 forever changed the way wine is served, sold and enjoyed. The groundbreaking wine technology leaves the cork in place, safeguarding the wine from oxidation and thus allowing wine enthusiasts to enjoy wine by the glass without committing to the bottle. Now wine enthusiasts can easily pair wine with food, compare between vintages and vineyards, and so much more. For a video demonstration, please visit www.coravin.com/technology.
