Coravin Model Eleven Wine System
Want to stop saving your good wine for special occasions but don’t want to drink to excess? The revolutionary Coravin wine system allows you to pour a single glass of fine wine from any bottle without removing the cork thus protecting wine from oxidation. You can then continue storing the bottle for months, or even years, safe in the knowledge your wine is still perfectly drinkable. Its latest edition, the Model Eleven, is the first to be Bluetooth connected and fully automatic with an LED display to let you know when the system is ready to pour and when to replace its argon gas capsule.
