Cool Wine Gear: Vacu Vin
Life is way too short to drink bad wine, don't you agree?
If you like a glass or two of wine a day—hey, it's good for your health!—then the inexpensive Vacu Vin 3-Piece Wine Saver Pump & Stopper will keep your wine fresh for days. A simple vacuum pump, it extracts air from an opened wine bottle, leaving it sealed tight with a re-usable rubber stopper. The whole process takes only a few seconds. Without air in the bottle, the oxidation process slows way down and keeps the wine from rapidly degrading. In other words, you'll enjoy a glass as much the third or fourth day as you did with the first pour on Day 1. (Note: this process does not work on sparkling wines). Comes with a one-year warranty and two stoppers. Cost: $12.
