Wine Gadget of the Week

CapaBubbles Sparking Wine Stopper

CapaBubbles Sparkling Wine Stopper: When you leave an unfinished bottle of still wine on the counter after a long night, not all is lost — sure, that morning’s wine may have lost a little luster with all the oxygen swirling around, but it’s usually salvageable, at least for sangria. Not so with bottles of bubbly, as all the fun fizz from the night before turns into a sour, flat funk when left open all night.

Coming to the rescue is CapaBubbles, an easy, stylish way to save that sparkling wine. Best of all, it’s user-friendly design, which basically turns the sparkler into a screwcap bottle, makes sense to slap on right after the bottle is opened, so that the slow loss of fizz that starts right upon opening is stunted immediately, ensuring optimal celebratory sipping from beginning to end.
