Vacu-Vin Wine Saver System
We'll be adding this to put our money where our mouth is series later this month but we don't think we've every covered this amazing little wonder. Unless you consume a bottle of wine every time you open one, putting the cork back in (and with the soon to take over the world screw cap wine phenomen) you'll need something to keep that wine fresh. Well you'll need the one and only original Vacu-Vin! The Vacu-Vin pump removes the air (and the oxygen that spoils wine) from opened bottles. Place it over the reusable stopper and pump out the air. The more stoppers you have the more bottles you can save. We have no less than 5 stoppers in our kitchen. We love this thing.

The device reduces the air pressure in the wine bottle, true. But it does NOT produce a vacuum. We seem to accept without question that a SLIGHT reduction in the air pressure makes the wine last longer. But does it? And if so by how much?
Perhaps this is just a marketing gimic. Does anyone have any supporting evidence that it does make a difference?
