Twin Top Cork
Screw Tops / Metal
Bottles closed with natural cork will reseal after pouring with the Coravin System. Please keep in mind that a colder cork will take longer to reseal. Leave chilled bottles standing upright after pouring to allow more time to reseal.
*Access screw top wines with Coravin using the Coravin Screw Cap attachment.
While a synthetic closure will not damage your Needle, the closure will not reseal, and thus permit oxidation after some time. If you access a bottle with a synthetic closure, store it upright to ensure that it does not leak.
This type of closure will cause permanent damage of the Coravin Needle.
