Reusable Wine Bottle Sealer
Introducing a fantastic reusable silicone cap that reseals a bottle of wine after you remove the cork. It’s made to resemble the bungs used to seal barrels during winemaking. Once you remove the cork you can re-seal the bottle, it will be liquid tight and the bottle can rest on its side or even upside down without leaking. No more jamming the cork back in the bottle, no more rearranging the fridge to fit an open bottle in the door. The open bottle can also be stored on its side in the fridge or on a wine rack; this reusable wine bottle sealer fits virtually every wine bottle.
Wine Preservation Kit
You can prolong the life and quality of your wine for days, weeks even months. Use what winemakers use to prolong the life of their wine. The Ultimate Wine Preservation Kit includes one can of Wine Preserve (good for 120 uses) and 3 Black Caps for resealing your wine. The preserver is made of a combination of inert gases used to blanket the surface of an open bottle of wine thereby protecting it from the oxygen that is so important during winemaking but damaging after a bottle is opened. Wine Preserve will not strip out a wine’s aromas unlike vacuum devices but it will create an airtight seal. When using the Ultimate Wine Preservation Kit it is important to keep the bottle upright after applying the gas. Go ahead, trust what winemakers worldwide use to ensure wine quality.
