Pouring Wine

NOTE: Use on bottles with natural cork (remove foil to confirm), or on screw cap bottles using Coravin Screw Caps.

NOTE: Make sure Clamp is in the down position before use.

  • 1.Pick up System. Light Ring will illuminate BLUE indicating System is ready for use.

    2.Place clamp over neck of bottle.

  • 3.Push down with palm of hand on metal surface to insert Needle through cork. Push until Light Ring turns GREEN, indicating System is ready to pour.

  • 4.Hold Spout over glass and tilt bottom of bottle up until wine pours automatically. Light Ring will illuminate GREEN in a cascading motion.

Safety Information


  • Argon 6.5g (0.23oz) CAS 7440-37-1

    CAUTION: Damaged or flawed wine bottles may break when pressurized. A Coravin Wine Bottle Sleeve is provided for your use to reduce risk of injury from broken glass.

    WARNING: Gas Capsules are under high pressure. The Coravin System is designed to work ONLY with genuine Coravin Capsules. Use of non-Coravin capsules, re-use of any part of the Capsule, or connection to sources of gas other than Coravin Capsules is dangerous and may cause injury to users or others nearby. Use of large capacity gas sources with the Coravin System can result in gas leaks which could cause serious injury or death. Large capacity gas sources are NEITHER tested NOR approved by Coravin. The use of alternative gas sources will void the System warranty and remove all responsibility of Coravin from any issues or injury that may arise. For more information contact Coravin Customer Service.

How to optimize your Coravin Pure™ Capsules

On average, each Coravin Pure Capsule will enable you to pour about fifteen 5 ounce glasses of wine. Model Eleven allows you to switch easily between sip and glass modes to help you optimize the use of your Coravin Capsules. You can also adjust your pour size and speed directly from the Coravin Moments App. It is important to remember that sip/glass modes are not the same thing as measured pours. Based on your selections, the System will utilize Argon gas differently - when you increase your pour speed or size, more Argon gas will be used and when you decrease your pour speed or size the System will utilize less gas. To get the most out of each Coravin Pure Capsule, we recommend setting your slider to a slower pour speed. If you hear a hissing sound when you stand your bottle up after pouring you are using more Argon gas than is necessary for your pour. Consider decreasing the pour size to ensure better optimization. And, don’t forget, it takes more Argon gas to pour when you get down to the bottom of the bottle, so pull the cork if you know you will be drinking the rest of the bottle that day.
