Coravin Wine System
We recommend that you keep your Coravin System in top condition with simple regular cleaning. At the end of any day you use your Coravin, a light rinse with tap water down the spout will help flush any residual wine from the system. After the rinse, press the trigger to remove any water from inside the needle. IMPORTANT: Never submerge your Coravin System in liquid and never press the trigger while rinsing the spout. For frequent users, clean the system by pouring a little white vinegar down the spout, press the trigger a few times, and then rinse with tap water. Rinsing with hot water will yield optimal results.
We recommend doing a quick trigger press after each use of the Coravin System. If you do this with the Coravin System in the base, any excess wine inside the needle will spray onto the base, which can be wiped clean.
Do not place any part of the Coravin System in the dishwasher.

If you have determined that you your needle is clogged with cork particles, use the Needle Clearing Tool included with your Coravin System to unclog it.
Unscrew the needle grip at the top of the needle to release it, and let the needle drop down to rest on the needle guide. Tilt the needle slightly and gently remove it from the unit.
Hold the Needle Clearing Tool by the handle and gently poke the tool through the eye of the needle to remove any cork particles. Always hold the needle by the needle grip.
Insert the clearing tool into the top of the needle by the needle grip, and slide it down to push any excess cork towards the eye of the needle.
Poke the tool through the eye to the needle again to remove any last cork particles.
Repeat until no cork is visible through the eye.
