I’m seriously wine geeking out right now. I have just finished trying out the Coravin Wine Preservation System and I am in love! In fact, I am holding myself back from not going through and taking a sample from all the bottles in my cellar right now.
I was kindly sent a Coravin Model 6 this week to product test by the team at Coravin and Tide PR. Thank you so much!
I recorded my first 2 times using the Coravin below to take you through a bit more about this revolutionary product alongside showing you how it works on both a wine bottle closed with a natural cork and a bottle closed with a screw cap.
I am no videographer nor great on camera, however, I hope you enjoy these videos. Excuse the numerous ‘ummms’ and the cats who just had to be part of the videos too. Haha!

More about the Coravin:
As I mention in the videos, this product is going to be revolutionary for my wine blogging hobby as it means I can taste wines over periods of time, which is darn exciting. It also means I can do a tasting of numerous bottles of wine and then keep them in pristine condition to fully enjoy at a later date.
Coravin says that when the wine preservation system is used properly on a bottle with a natural cork, the wine will age in the same way as if the Coravin wasn’t used. Pretty darn impressive right!
On a bottle that is under a screwcap, the system will help preserve the wine for up to 3 months.
I know a lot of wine companies and experts who use Coravins therefore I had no doubt before receiving this product about it working. And from my experience so far, it works perfectly. I am so excited to use it over the coming months and years to revisit bottles.
Coravin’s start from around AU$380 and in my opinion they are 100% worth it. Yes, mine was a media sample, however, after using it, I was converted. A very practical and smart piece of technology for wine lovers, especially those who are into cellaring wine.
According to the Coravin website, a Coravin with a standard needle can be used on a standard bottle up to approximately 25 times.
Do you have a question about the Coravin? Drop them below and I’ll do my best to give you an answer 🙂
