You may have already read our article on Why You Should Use a Wine Preserver at Home. That articles tells you Why. This article tells you How!
When you open the bottle at home, oxygen enters the bottle and begins to interact with the surface of the wine. This interaction is called "oxidization" and changes the flavor profile of the wine over time. As the wine oxidizes, the flavor changes from a more desirable "opening up", to a neutral affect, and then to a degradation of the flavor. This curve goes all the way to the undesirable point of the wine tasting and smelling like vinegar. To learn more about this, check out our article on "Why Do Open Bottles of Wine Go Bad?"
Yes! You can stop the process of oxidization. You can accomplish this through lower storage temperatures, removal from direct sunlight, and preventing oxygen from touching the surface of the wine. Unopened wine bottles stored in a wine fridge or wine cellar accomplish these things.
However, when you cork the bottle, you're allowing air into the bottle and the oxidization process begins.
To stop this process and keep your wine tasting fresh, use a proven effective wine preserver. 100% Argon based wine preservation systems have proven to be the most effective method, with argon used in Coravin, Napa Technologies, VineyardFresh, and our own Silvadore Wine Preserver.
