Description:

I discovered Juvale's Wine Vacuum Pump while looking for a way to preserve the open bottles left-over from dinner parties. I would end up opening 3 - 5 bottles to pair with meal choices & guest preferences, but never finish all of the wines opened.

The device is easy to use, once you have finished your wine drinking for the evening, you follow this simple process:

  1. Insert the nozzle of Juvale Wine Vacuum Pump into the opening of the bottle.
  2. Give the stopper a few quick pumps with the vacuum pump to create an airtight seal around the opening.
  3. Repeat the process each time the bottle is opened.

About a week later, I re-opened the test bottle and tasted the wine. I then decided to see if I waited more than one week if the bottle would taste the same. I also wanted a true & fair comparison of my senses, so I opted for 2 identical bottles of wine at the same time, keeping one as a control.

The Test:

I opened 2 bottles of Orbit Merlot 2012
Day # Bottle 1 Bottle 2
1 The nose is of dark cherry, plum and herbs. The palate is plum, blueberry and herbs. The nose is of dark cherry, plum and herbs. The palate is plum, blueberry and herbs.
7 A nose of stewed black fruit. The palate was overripe berries. The finish is gone. The nose is of dark cherry, plum and herbs. The palate is plum, blueberry and herbs. Exactly like the day I opened the bottle.
14 The nose smelled of vinegar & raisins. The palate was now very overripe plum, bitter undercurrent of decaying fruit & the wine is now unbalanced. The nose is of stewed dark cherry, plum and baking spices. The palate is plum, blueberry and sweet baking spices. Similar the day I opened the bottle, with only a much less intense nose.
 

My conclusion

My conclusion is that for preserving wine for up to just over a week this system is Amazing. I would suggest this for use for Medium length storage (more than 14 days.) But my most common use cases, having left over wine from opening your 2nd bottle of the evening, it is a great solution to keep the wine fresh until you have a chance to enjoy it again.
