Why on earth would we do this? No, this is not another crazy party game we do after the third bottle of wine! We did this in the name of wine preservation.
As you may know, a wine starts to oxidise and go bad the second you open it. It will still taste fresh after a day or so, but any longer than that it will start to taste dull, and after that – it’s Vinegar City, population: you!
There are many gadget that try to preserve wine. Gadgets that pump the oxygen out of wine, or gadgets that pump inert gas over the wine. Or you could transfer the remaining liquid in to a half size bottle. But, arghhhh, this stuff is a nightmare, and many give questionable results. Some people even think they can freeze a wine in order to keep it fresh (please, NEVER do this).
