Air Cork: a balloon to store wine after opening


News published on Friday, April 10, 2015


To preserve a wine's qualities for several days, it has to avoid any contact with ambient air. Thus, Air Cork is a small balloon which must be inserted into the opened bottle. When inflated, it acts like a cork and protects the wine.

To enjoy a wine tasting without wasting what remains in the bottle, you'll either have to buy the right accessory or be resourceful. In this conservation mission, air is the main enemy and has to be kept away from the wine. Various systems already exist, from the air-emptying stopper to the neutral gas injection or a simple transfer in smaller bottle. A half-empty container actually is a significant factor of the wine's degradation.

Air Cork is a system based on a pump and a small balloon to insert in the bottle. When the balloon is at the wine's level, you just need to inflate it with the grape-shaped pump so that it makes a barrier. Similar to a stopper, Air Cork will then allow the wine to be carried and stored for 2 or 3 days. The device is available on the brand's website for $24.95.
