Quench! – Wine Preservation Systems

Many consumers wrestle with the question of what to do with leftover wine.
What’s the best way to preserve it overnight, so that it remains as fresh as it was when the bottle was opened? Although Mark admits to some bafflement over this dilemma (the problem of leftover wine doesn’t exist at his house), he reviews the various wine preservation systems on the market—starting with the Vacu-Vin, which made its debut in 1983, the various methods using inert gas, and the new and revolutionary Coravin. He concludes by describing his favorite low-tech preservation system: The Marbles. On Bizarre Beverage News, he discusses another trio of stories:
yet another trademark infringement case involving Champagne, the new partnership between Diageo and Sean “Diddy” Combs on DeLeon Tequila, and the newest gadget to hit Kickstarter—the wine condom.
