So how does it work? The Coravin uses a fine needle to puncture the cork, allowing you to pour wine from the bottle without actually opening it.

This frees you to move from wine to wine without fear of it spoiling for several months.

Worth noting that this model does not pierce the cork (the cork must be removed) and will only allow you to preserve a bottle for four weeks or so. It's handy, to be certain, but not nearly as versatile as the above system, which allows you to pour and preserve an unlimited number of bottles for months or even years.
