We all know that a bottle of wine is meant to be consumed shortly after it’s opened. Let it sit out for too long, and the unpleasant taste of old wine starts to emerge. The culprit? Good old oxygen. The Vacu Vin Wine Saver is a game-changer, as it will keep your wine tasting fresh for as long as a week by removing air from the wine bottle, be it white or red. Simply insert the stopper into the bottle and pump until you hear a click. The click means your seal is airtight, and you have up to a week to finish the bottle.

Coravin One Wine System ($182)

Ah, the famous dilemma that many wine enthusiasts often face. Should you sneak a taste of that bottle of wine, or let it age a little longer? Now, you can have your cake and eat it, too. With this system, you get a needle that allows access to the wine bottle without damaging the cork. Give the trigger a push to pressurize the bottle, and release it to pour out some of the wine.

When the needle is removed, the cork reseals and continues to protect the wine, letting it age naturally. The ergonomic handle makes this device easy to use and ensures you have a secure grasp of the bottle. Hey, no one needs to know you couldn’t wait to sneak a taste of that aging Merlot!

If you’ve left an opened bottle of wine in the fridge in a few days, you know how quickly the taste can go from pleasant to sour. What causes wine to spoil so quickly is the presence of oxygen, which enters the bottle once you open it. If you’re looking for a wine-saving solution that claims to remove 100% of the oxygen from an opened bottle of wine, try the ZOS Halo Wine Saver.

According to the company, it can extend the drinkability of an open bottle for weeks or even months. All you have to do is insert the device into the bottle, and the cartridge will work to absorb the oxygen within a few minutes. This gives you the ability to enjoy a glass of wine without worrying that if you don’t finish the bottle, it’ll all go to waste.
