Coravin Terms of Use

Welcome to Coravin! Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of Coravin, Inc.’s (“Coravin” and sometimes “our,” “we,” and “us”) Moments application (the “Services”).

Coravin Moments recommends Wine Moments that are a combination of favourite/suggested moments such as movies/TV/music/food with wine(s). Coravin Moments has the capability to suggest wines that you already own, along with wines Coravin has identified might be of interest, to pair with certain moments.

Coravin Moments Cellar is a representation of the wines, flavours, varieties, and regions that you have indicated you enjoy. Coravin Moments Cellar encompasses wines that you own and wines Coravin has identified you may enjoy. The Service highlights both moments that are possible with the wines you have indicated that you own and ones you may not own.

Coravin Moments is able to recognize pictures of wine labels and allows you to identify and save the wines you like as you try them. This functionality allows you to scan bottles to add to the Coravin Moments Cellar. Each wine is automatically associated with details such as the regions, grapes, producer, reviews and ratings.

If you own a Coravin Model Eleven, Coravin Moments connects wirelessly to it, through Bluetooth. This enables you to know when your Capsule needs to be replaced or the system to be charged, to purchase more Capsules and Needles, to update the software as necessary, and to understand how you use your Model Eleven.
