Savino Preservation System

Savino Wine Preservation System: True wine lovers relish the exploration of wines new and old rather than just getting drunk off of them, so a good night with similarly interested friends around often means popping corks from bottles that no one intends to finish.

But since wine is a living thing, it dies rather quickly once oxygen intrudes, so inventors have spent decades trying to preserve open wines for a few more days, from pumps that suck out air to plungers that fill bottles with inert gas.

Savino is the latest stab, and it’s certainly the most sleek and stylish: a glass cylinder that employs a floating airlock to keep wine fresh for nearly a week longer. That claim may depend on how sensitive your palate is, and there will always be a contingent that doesn’t believe any preservation system works, but at the very least, Savino is easy to use, keeps the fruit flies out, and looks mighty fine on your dining room table.
