Preserves wine for a LONG time!
by BurgLover -
I've used vacu-vin in the past. Helps, but only for very short term - a day or two. My wife encountered medical problems which caused her to stop drinking wine, so now I'm going through bottles more slowly. I also like to be able to have a glass of one wine one night, and a different night the next, depending on what I'm pairing it with for dinner.
This setup makes it all possible! I purchased a small tank of Argon at a local gas supply shop, rather than purchase from here and pay the hazard shipping fee. Got it a lot cheaper too! Argon is better than Nitrogen because it's heavier than air and will sit on the surface of the wine, displacing oxygen.
Now I can have a glass of one wine tonight, open a different bottle tomorrow, and a third on the following night. Doesn't matter if I don't get back to the first bottle for a week or more. The wine tastes just as fresh as when it was opened, even after a couple of weeks! So far I've only tried it on west coast wines and a couple of inexpensive Bordeaux. I haven't tried it on something like a delicate aged Burgundy, but I suspect it should work pretty well.
I'm very impressed with the results! The equipment seems well made and should last a long time. I also like the fact that they sell replacement parts here. This definitely gets a big thumbs up from me!
