If you taste even one-tenth the amount of wine that gets tasted in my house, the Coravin Model Two Wine System is a must-have. I've been a Coravin user for over 2 years, and I'm PUMPED to have the new Coravin Model Two Wine System as addition to my wine gadgets.

What is a Corvin
What is a Coravin and why must you have one you ask? Well, the Coravin is the first and only system in the world that gives wine lovers the freedom to pour any wine, in any amount, without removing the cork. Yes, you read that correctly—without removing the cork. Whether you want a sip, a glass, or more, your last glass will taste just as amazing as your very first.
Why you need Coravin
As someone who talks, tweets, and writes about wine, you can see why the Coravin is a life (or liver) saver. Among other things, when I'm on a wine Twitter chat every few weeks, I can't possibly drink 5 or 6 bottles of wine in a timely fashion, but I need to taste all 5 or 6 to tweet about them on that wine Twitter party. Enter Coravin. I can taste each bottle, even have a glass or two, and save the rest for another time.
Coravin is great, too, for having a glass of a spendy bottle of wine on a night that I'm by myself, or a night that I want a different varietal than my husband. He's having steak, I'm having fish, but we both want a nice glass of wine. We both can! Without opening two bottles that have to be finished. Don't get me wrong, we can finish those bottles, but we don't always want to or want to have to. Maybe I'm headed out of town that week or maybe it's a busy work week. Or maybe it's a cocktail fashioning week and wine just isn't in the picture. Coravin to the rescue. The Coravin should be on everyone's wish list.
Coravin is easy to use
Coravin is easier to use than a corkscrew—simply insert the Coravin needle through the cork, tip the bottle, and press the trigger to pressurize with argon, an inert gas used by winemakers. When you remove the needle, the cork will reseal to preserve the wine remaining in the bottle for weeks, months, or even years.
