What are the differences between Coravin models?
Each Coravin model is simply built for a different type of wine lover. The premier options are ideal for professional use or particularly robust collections, while they recommend the Model Three or Model Six for everyday wine tasting.
Which system should I buy?
You should buy the system that best suits your needs and the demands of your wine cellar. Coravin suggests Models Three or Six for growing wine collections and those whose needs may be more introductory. On the other hand, experienced wine collectors will be able to take full advantage of the features offered by the Coravin Model 11.
Can Coravin be used on Champagne?
Champagne and sparkling wine present a unique set of challenges for tasting and resealing through Coravin’s current systems. Coravin’s current models cannot be used with champagne or sparkling wine. However, a Coravin model for champagne and sparkling wine is currently in development.
Do Coravin wine systems aerate the wine?
Any Coravin system can be equipped with a Coravin Aerator. The Coravin Aerator creates small jets to increase the surface area of the wine that is exposed to the air. This process rapidly aerates the wine, producing results that are equivalent to decanting wine for 60 to 90 minutes.
Does Coravin work with double magnum or bigger bottles?
Although some users have reported using a Coravin on very large bottles of wine, the Coravin system is not recommended or built for use with anything larger than a standard magnum. The smallest size bottle that a Coravin system works with is a split bottle.
How do I use the Coravin screw cap accessory?
First, remove and discard the existing screw cap. Immediately replace the screw cap with the Coravin screw cap accessory. Do not pour wine from the bottle before using the Coravin screw cap. Press the Coravin trigger quickly to clear the Coravin system of any air or wine residue.
If I get a small dripping from a bottle on its side after drawing a glass, am I doing something wrong?
Nope! As a cork re-seals after the Coravin needle has been removed, some trace amounts of wine may be pushed to the surface of the cork. This is completely normal. If you are using a cork that is either very cold or very old, this will be more common. With age and lower temperatures, corks lose their elasticity and are slower to reseal. We suggest wiping away the drips and letting your wine sit upright for a few moments after removing the Coravin to reduce the likelihood of dripping.
If I use the Coravin with red wine and want to switch to white, should I clean the Coravin between glasses?
There is no need to clean the Coravin when switching from wine to wine. Simply press the trigger briefly to clear the Coravin of any wine before switching between wine varietals.
How should I store my wine after using a Coravin product?
After using a Coravin system, wine should be kept horizontally in a cool, dark location. In storage, the wine should cover the base of the cork to ensure that the cork does not dry out. Corks in chilled wines may take longer to reseal, so we suggest letting these bottles sit upright for a few minutes before storing them horizontally.
