Perfect for our tastings, the kit comprises a vacuum pump with three stoppers for sealing and preserving wine in opened bottles, and one special stopper for preserving sparkling wines.
We typically open three wines in our tastings, and although any wine will stay fresh if recorked and stored overnight in a cool place, our kit gives extra assurance. The vacuum pump concept is simple: oxygen is the enemy of opened bottles of wine, so a re-usable rubber bung is inserted, the vacuum pump used to withdraw excess oxygen, and the vent in the top of the bung seals once the vacuum has formed.
The pressure in sparkling wines can cause a cork or bung to pop back out, but our stainless steel Champagne stopper overcomes that with its clamp system that stays firmly in place until released.
