The Air Cork ~ No More Wasting Wine!

By Lynn N. Capri

There’s something so…sad…about a half empty bottle of wine. You’ve enjoyed a glass or two but it’s a work night so you decide not to finish the whole thing off ~ and that means “wine leftovers” that invariably taste stale…or worse.

Fear not, though, there’s no reason to give up your mid-week glass of vino (or feel compelled to drink the entire bottle) or stay away from recipes that call for just a little bit of wine ~ because now there’s the “Air Cork,” essentially a wine balloon that preserves any open, unfinished bottle by reducing the oxidation process. It keeps air from touching the wine by providing a complete seal, prolonging the wine’s shelf life by 3-4 days.

The “Air Cork” retails for $22 and is available at
