Vacuum Wine Preservation Systems
Vacuum wine preservation systems are designed to pump out the air from an open bottle of wine. They typically come with stoppers you place on top of the opened bottle, then attach the pump on top and draw the air out. The latest systems seem to manage the amount of air that is vacummed out which claims it doesnt also draw the aromas out. There are some critics though that think wines using this process have less aroma on the nose, and seemed flat and dull.
Some of the Wine Preservation Systems are:
Manual Vacuum Wine Preserver Pumps
The Vacuvin Vacuum Wine Pump extracts the air from the opened bottle and re-seals it with a re-usable rubber stopper. The unique and patented indicator will emit a "click" sound when the correct seal is reached.
Le Creuset Screwpull Metal Wine Pump
The Screwpull Metal Wine Pump works in a similar way to the Vacuvin system by extracting the air from the wine bottle and sealing it with a rubber stopper.
With the Metrokane V-Gauge wine preserver, it allows you to see the Vacuum as you pump the air from the wine bottle. This way you know when you have pumped enough air to preserve your wine. The beauty of this visual system is it will also let you know if the seal has held when you re-open the wine.
Metrokane V-1 Vacuum Decanter
This is the world's first wine preservation system where you can preserve your wine while it is still in the decanter. The system works in the same way as the V-Gauge above, where there is a gauge letting you know when you have pumped enough vacuum. The Metrokane V-1 wine preserver system comes with its own purpose built hand blown crystal decanter.
Metrokane Houdini Wine Preserver
The Houdini Wine Preserver is a manual system with a push button stopper that releases the seal at the push of a button. This wine preservation system allows you to store your bottle horizontally after it has been sealed.
Automated Vacuum Wine Preserver Systems
