We're taking a quick interlude from our Trader Joe's Top Picks series today to bring you this special sponsored post from Vestia, the makers of a new wine preserver. Why? Because we are always looking for ways to make opened bottles last longer. After all, the longer your wines can last the more bottles you are free to open and try without dumping any dollars down the drain. Read on to find out how you can help launch this new product.
There’s nothing worse than buying a bottle of wine, drinking one glass, and dumping the rest down the drain a couple weeks later. As an avid wine drinker who looks for the best deals on bottles, you obviously want your wine to last as long as possible. But with an average "lifespan" of only three to five days, your previously opened vino has to be finished quickly before it goes bad. With this short of a time period, you run the serious risk of wasting wine.
The fact is that when you pop open your new bottle, it’s immediately exposed to air. Prolonged exposure to the air leads to the dissolution of oxygen into the wine. The oxygen reacts with certain phenolic compounds, resulting in oxidation (the chemical reaction that makes your wine taste funky). As I’m sure you may have experienced before, oxidized wine loses its fruity aroma and develops a not-so-fresh flavor. And as long as air is able to seep back into the bottle, you have a problem.
We’d like to save wine drinkers from the perils of rapid oxidation, and to do so, we developed the Vestia Wine Saver, which uses newly patented technology to actively keep an open bottle of wine fresh and flavorful for weeks instead of days. To bring the product to your wine bottle, we’re seeking investors through a Kickstarter campaign.
With this new technology, we are able to preserve opened bottles of wine by actively preventing oxidation. With a vacuum-sealing motor and a specially-designed wine stopper, the Vestia Wine Saver automatically and continuously vacuum seals and removes air from any wine bottle. The technology creates a low pressure environment within the bottle, keeping the wine tasting great for a longer amount of time. When any air gets into the bottle for any reason, the Wine Saver automatically activates to remove it.
Both the battery-powered automatic vacuum sealing motor and the stopper are easily attached to an open bottle of wine. With a press of the operation lever, the bottle is vacuum-sealed. Voilà. It’s that easy.
To bring the Vestia Wine Saver to wine bottles around the world (and particularly yours), we’re raising money on Kickstarter for physical production. The seven tiers of investment options range from $1.00 to $500.00+, and anyone who donates $17.00 or more will get a Vestia Wine Saver!
