Wine thieves rejoice! No longer must you risk getting caught stealing the whole bottle. Just insert the Coravin 1000 Wine System into any fine old red or white with a natural cork and siphon out the goods of a good year without removing or disrupting the cork, or even leaving more than a pin prick behind in its foil. Think of the international oeno-heists you'll mastermind! Think of...what's that? Oh. I guess the Coravin 1000 is meant for wine owners and collectors to use themselves. It's a tool for pouring out a glass, or even just a taste, from a bottle of wine without pulling the cork. Whatever remains in the bottle post-Coravin remains just as preserved as it was before, so you don't have to commit to drinking all 750mL of vino at once. Wine lovers will appreciate this option to taste, but not down:

  • Wines they've been cellaring for years.
  • A bottle they want just one glass from with breakfast.
  • Multiple bottles they want small pours from for more precise food pairings.
  • Wines they've been given as gifts so they know which ones to re-gift.

The Coravin 1000 apparatus looks like a fancy bottle opener, but functions more like an oil well. Actually, it kind of looks like an oil well too. The system fits around a wine bottle's neck and lowers a thin, hollow needle through its cork. It then pressurizes the bottle with argon (cartridges that insert into the Coravin body) which forces the wine to stream upward through the needle and out a pour spout into your glass. Once pouring is complete, remove the needle and the cork will reseal itself.

Note that the Coravin 1000 System works best with natural cork closures, such as agglomerated or multi-piece natural corks. It will penetrate and siphon from synthetic corks too, but these probably won't be able to reseal themselves as well. Some oxidation will occur, and if bottles are re-stored on their side, they might leak.
