Holiday Gift Idea: Coravin Wine System


Imagine being able to enjoy a bottle of wine like you do your favorite scotch- one glass at a time.

The Coravin Wine System allows you to do just that, and it’s a total game-changer.

The Coravin looks like an overly-complicated wine opener, and you can use it on any bottle of wine with a natural cork. The system has a needle that you push down into the wine. Tilt the bottle as you would normally, and pour a glass. Remove the needle, and it’s like the bottle was never opened.

This is the perfect gift for the wine-lover in your life. Think of the possibilities. Coming home after a long day and wanting to enjoy a glass of wine without worrying about ruining an entire bottle, or opening a crappy bottle because you just want one glass. At dinner parties, you can serve each person a different type of wine, without having to open all different bottles.

The Coravin system was invented in 2013, and after a few initial problems resulting in a recall, it’s back and better than ever.

There are two different models, priced at $299.95 and $349.95, so if you’re looking for something for an office grab bag or for that guy you’re kind-of-seeing-but-not-really-so-don’t-read-too-much-into-it, this is a terrible idea. But for something special, and for the right person, it’s an unbelievable find.

Geoffrey Zakarian is a fan of the project saying, “At home, I can enjoy a glass of something valuable, even precious, and perhaps save the rest to share with my son when he comes of age – and that to me is beyond value. It’s priceless. Really.” Joe Bastianich has also endorsed the product.

You can buy one on the website or find it in most specialty cookware stores. Check back for more holiday gift ideas!
