When trying to drink a fine wine, getting the cork out of the bottle is always the hardest part. Whether it just won’t come out of the bottle or it falls apart inside, it can ruin a dinner. But if you’re willing to spend a little money, you can avoid these problems all together.
The Coravin 1000 ($299) clamps onto a bottle of wine and sends a tiny needle through the cork, opening a small passageway for the wine to exit. Oxygen never gets inside the bottle because of the airtight seal and the hole in the cork is so small, it seals itself up when you pull the needle out.
The only thing that gets inside the bottle is Argon, a gas which is introduced through the needle. It pressurizes the bottle and forces the wine out.
So if you want those expensive wines locked up in your cellar to last a little longer, get the machine that shoots a needle full of Argon into your wine.
