Coravin Model Six
Arguably the best innovation in wine for decades, Coravin allows wine enthusiasts to enjoy it by the glass without compromising the whole bottle. That means those wines you've been cellaring for years can be tasted and enjoyed, but also savoured for years to come.
Coravin gives wine lovers the chance to test whether their cellared wines are at their full potential and removes the pressure of having to consumer a bottle at once. The needles work on all cork bottles and attachable screw caps too, so you can preserve bottles that don't have corks and enjoy them by Coravin.
