Dive deep into the innovative technology and science that brought Coravin to life.


Coravin delivers the ultimate in wine preservation.

Unlike other wine preservers, which only delay the oxidation of your wine, the Coravin Wine Preservation System is designed to pour wine without removing the cork, so wine always tastes like it has just been opened—even years later.

The Needle is the pinnacle of Coravin's technology.

The non-coring Coravin Needle gently passes through corks without
displacing cork material. Once the Needle is removed, the cork simply expands
back to its normal shape. As wine is extracted through the Needle, it is
replaced with pure Argon gas, ensuring oxygen never touches the remaining wine,
keeping it as fresh as the day it was bottled.

Coravin Screw Caps bring preservation to screw cap wines.

Extend the life of wines closed with screw caps for up to three months
with Coravin silicone Screw Caps. This specially designed accessory replaces
the original screw cap closure and features a silicone liner that can withstand
fifty punctures by the Coravin Needle before needing to be replaced.

Comparing Wine Preservation

Other wine preservation products only delay the oxidation of your wine. With the Coravin Wine Preservation System, every glass you pour tastes as good as the first, weeks, months or even years later.

History of Coravin

The Coravin Story

A man working with tools to build in a shop setting.

Greg Lambrecht brings his passion for wine to his workshop.

Greg Lambrecht, the founder and inventor of Coravin, combined his knowledge of medical-grade needles with his passion for wine to develop a unique wine preservation system that allowed him to pour wine without removing the cork. In the late 1990s, he brought his expertise in creating ultra-gentle and exceptionally precise needles for paediatric chemotherapy delivery to his home workshop, where he began working on a device that would change the way he drank wine.

The first Coravin product comes to life.

When Greg’s wife was pregnant with their first child, Greg found himself without a drinking partner. Now he was stuck having to drink a whole bottle once he opened it or pour it down the drain once it went bad, but what he truly wanted was the perfect glass of wine. Determined to find a solution, Greg put his dual degrees from MIT to work designing and prototyping a device that would allow him to pour wine by the glass. It would be more than eight years before he would launch the first Coravin Wine Preservation System: the Model C1000.

Three-Year Blind Tasting

Coravin products are used by professionals and passionate wine enthusiasts across the world.

In his years of testing, Greg worked with wine makers and other experts in the wine industry to blind taste their wines using his device. They tested bottles that had been accessed 3 months, 6 months, one year, and three years previously against fresh bottles of the same wines. He continues to test Coravin Systems around the world, even testing a bottle that was 14 years old, accessed with one of his original prototypes. With every blind tasting, the results are clear: wines accessed with the Coravin Wine Preservation System remain as fresh as the day they were bottled, even years later. Today, wine professionals and wine lovers around the world enjoy wine one glass at a time using Coravin Wine Preservation Systems.
