624 million bottles of wine are poured down the drain every year as a result of going off – don’t let your leftover wine go to waste…
As all wine lovers know, once a cork is extracted from a wine bottle, the wine starts to become stale as soon as it reacts with the air, and it is hard to seal a bottle back up again sufficiently with the original cork – and this is where wine bottle stoppers (also known as wine preserver, bottle sealer or wine saver) come in, acting as the cork would have previously done.
Good wine stoppers allow you to go back and drink an already opened bottle of wine, by preventing unwanted air and sediment from gaining contact with the wine, which could cause it to go off and lose its flavour. Wine stored with a stopper in the fridge keeps fresh for a few days. For best results, store the wine upright to minimise the surface area exposed to oxygen.
If you need to keep the wine fresh for longer than this, then there are two key wine preservation systems to help you:
Firstly, vacuum systems. These rely on a vacuum pump to get the air out of the bottle so that the wine does not react with it. Our stylish AdHoc Wine Saving Vacuum Pump is ideal, a popular option that is affordable and easy to use.
The second type of wine preservation system is a blanket system. This relies on using an inert gas, such as argon. This gas is heavier than oxygen so when it is pumped into the bottle it sinks forming a layer over the wine. The gas doesn’t harm the wine at all. These systems really do work to keep wine fresh some for weeks or even months, but they don’t come in at less than approximately £200 for basic models.
Finally, what about Champagne and sparkling wines? We have been searching for ages for a stylish champagne stopper, that works, and this is it… our Silver Champagne Stopper by AdHoc. It really does the trick of keeping the bubbles in and the taste fresh. Use this whilst storing your bottle upright in the fridge, and it will keep fresh and fizzy until you’re ready to finish the bottle. It’s available in not only silver but four colours too.
