Coravin Wine Access System
The Coravin Wine Access System pierces a wine bottle’s cork with a needle, pumps argon in, and dispenses your drinks glass by glass. Inventor Greg Lambrecht came up with the idea after other devices designed to save wine in the bottle fell flat, according to a previous Boston.com article. So far, his is the only one that works without removing the cork, and that preserves wine for years after you take that first sip. At $300, it’s a pricey toy, but Lambrecht said he’s working on developing a more cost-effective model.
