Important Safety Information

System Warnings

  • Use System ONLY with sparkling wines, such as champagne, prosecco and cava.

  • DO NOT USE System with still wines. Bottles may burst and cause serious injury.

  • System is designed to work ONLY with genuine Coravin Pure™ Sparkling CO2 Capsules (20g/0.71oz).

  • DO NOT USE System for anything other than its intended use.

  • System is not a toy. Keep out of reach of children.

  • ANY pressurized bottle may break if dropped or impacted resulting in projectile glass and possible serious injury to anyone nearby. Always use care when pressurizing a bottle and when handling a pressurized bottle. Condensation makes bottles slippery.

  • Use the supplied bottle bag or similar cover to reduce the risk of injury should a pressurized bottle break due to drop or impact.

  • Use of non-Coravin capsules, re-use of any part of the Capsule, or connection to sources of gas other than Coravin Pure™ Sparkling CO2 Capsules is dangerous and may cause injury to users or others nearby.

  • Alternative gas sources are NEITHER tested NOR approved by Coravin, Inc. The use of alternative gas sources will void the Coravin System warranty and remove all responsibility of Coravin, Inc. from any issues or injury that may arise.

Gas Capsule Warnings

  • Gas Capsule CONTAINS GAS UNDER PRESSURE, MAY EXPLODE IF HEATED.

  • Gas Capsules may be VERY COLD when empty. Use care when handling.

Wine quality is impacted by many factors. Use the Coravin Sparkling™ System only as intended and properly clean System after each use. Coravin, Inc. cannot guarantee the quality of any wine and will not be responsible for damage or loss of any wine unless that damage or loss is found to be caused by a defective Coravin System.

Read and follow all WARNINGS and instructions before use. PRESSURIZED BOTTLES MAY BREAK IF DROPPED RESULTING IN PROJECTILE GLASS. USE CORAVIN BOTTLE BAG TO REDUCE RISK OF INJURY.

Preserving Champagne & Other Sparkling Wines

Understanding the Coravin Sparkling™ Pressure Indicator

Sparkling Charger has a green/red Pressure Indicator on the side to show when a bottle has been fully charged with CO2 and if the CO2 cartridge has gas or is empty.

Sparkling Charger in use: will shift from red to green when fully charged Sparkling Charger not in use: CO2 is empty

Sparkling Charger in use: bottle is charged Sparkling Charger not in use: has CO2 gas and is ready to use

WARNING: Opening Access Door on Sparkling Charger when Pressure Indicator is green will result in rapid CO2 release and Capsule will be cold to the touch. Handle with care.

Make sure Sparkling Charger Nozzle and top of Sparkling Stopper are clean.

Align Sparkling Charger on top of Sparkling Stopper and press straight down firmly until you hear CO2 releasing into bottle.

Hold until you hear gas stop or Pressure Indicator turns green. If you hear gas leaking out, check that you are pressing straight down and Sparkling Charger is well seated.

Store bottle in refrigerator on its side for best preservation results.
