There are a lot of wine preservation methods out there, and literally hundreds of wine accessories claiming to preserve wine. From over 15 years of working in the wine industry, including very closely in and around different wine preservers and preservation systems, I've formed a pretty strong opinion. This opinion is backed by years of industry experience with methods that work, and some that don't.
The different preservation methods are subject to various perspectives and opinions (mine included). Important things to remember about wine preservers include:
However, we've narrowed down the "Top Methods to Preserve and Open Bottle of Wine"below, as they represent the most common methods to preserve wine at home.
We describe the Top Wine Preservation methods and allow you to form an opinion. However, judge a wine preserver by not only by what you read below, but what you experience in real life. Try some different methods and see if you agree with us. We think you will.
By the way, regardless of what method you prefer, the real importance of wine preservation is its ability to expand your wine experience and pleasure. Think about wine preservation as not only "saving wine," but about what you can now do!
Using a Wine Preserver can create better and more enjoyable wine experiences for you and your friends!
Open more of a variety you like. Open another bottle to share because you're not as concerned about waste or over consumption. Open a flight and enjoy a fun round of wine tasting with half a dozen bottles - just because you can. Use a wine preserver to Make Your Wine Experiences Better. Here's how...
The natural question after learning about all of these different methods is...what is the BEST WAY to preserve wine?
Important points to consider certainly include cost and value. However the first priority is that the wine preserver actually works - its efficacy. Does the method actually preserve the fresh taste of the open bottle of wine? Highest efficacy is attained with 100% Argon gas.
After ensuring the method uses 100% Argon gas, then consider price/value considerations, personal preferences, and ease of use. The value you gain from using a wine preserver quickly justifies the low time and effort required. (For a fun look at all the new wine experiences you can enjoy once you embrace wine preservation, see our blog "All the Things You Can Do Now That You Preserve Your Wine").
From our industry experience and all the information above, we believe 100% Argon is the most effective method to preserve an open bottle of wine. Your decision then comes down to which delivery system makes the most sense for you and your particular situation.
For several important reasons - including cost, ease of use, and ability to preserve multiple bottles at the same time - we recommend 100% Argon in a recyclable aluminum can. This includes products like ArT, VineyardFresh, and our own Silvadore.
