So, what do you do with the remaining wine? You certainly don’t want to pour it down the drain. That would be waste. But leaving it in the bottle and sealing it back up with the wine bottle cork isn’t all that good either.
Unlike the time before you pulled the cork out, the bottle is now filled with mostly air and some wine. All this air promotes all kinds of negative effects on the wine from oxidation or browning to bacterial growth.
Fortunately, there’s a solution. It’s call the Vacu Vin Wine Saver. It’s a very functional and simple wine preservation system that works by taking the harmful, excess oxygen out of the bottle.
The VacuVin Wine Saver consists of a small, hand air pump and specially designed rubber stoppers to fit the hand pump to a wine bottle. The pump removes the oxygen keeping the partial bottle of wine perfectly fresh for at least 2 weeks.
