I like to drink wine. But I like to drink moderately. That means I usually only have one glass of wine a night. Maybe two. That means I need a way to preserve the bottle I open for three or four days. I have tried various systems to accomplish this.

My current favorite wine preserver is the Private Preserve Wine Preserver. It's made in Napa Valley and comes in a red metal can that feels empty. Be assured that the can is full of inert gases (nitrogen, carbon dioxide and argon) that preserves your wine.

What you do is squirt the gases into the bottle and recap the wine. The gases in the Wine Preserve are heavier than air and put a layer of gas between the wine and the air that ruins it. I find that this system will keep red wine at a very acceptable flavor for three or four days. And that is without refrigerating the wine. Works fine for white wine, too.

The can claims it is good for 120 uses. I haven't really kept track, but I agree that it does a lot of bottles. A can runs round $10.00. It is available at fine wine stores everywhere. Also sold at Sur La Table. Highly recommended.
