It may seem like magic but it’s just simple chemistry paired with some ingenious physics and engineering. When wine goes ‘bad’, the culprit is oxygen, which makes up 21% of the air around us. Oxygen is very reactive and its reaction with the wine as soon as a bottle is opened changes the wine’s composition, destroying its original properties.

Coravin’s Pivot Wine Preservation System solves the problem by using Argon capsules. Argon gas is extremely stable and unreactive. As wine is poured out of a bottle with an affixed Wine Preservation System, the mechanism pushes Argon into the bottle, filling up the space and keeping oxygen out. Properly installed and used, this allows a bottle of wine to maintain its freshly-opened condition for up to 4 weeks.
