Preserving wine with Le Creuset Wine Pump

Who hasn’t faced the problem of having a half empty (or better said, half FULL!) bottle of wine after dinner and not knowing how to keep it fresh for another few days? Answer is – we all have as we are  watching our weekly units, aren’t we! 😉 Before I discovered the wine pump I either used the original cork/screw cap to reseal the bottle or one of those decorative stoppers, and was often disappointed by wine tasting flat or showing signs of oxidation once left in the fridge for a day or two.

The wine pump closure solves the problem. It comes with a stopper which goes on top of the bottle and then you use the pump to remove all air out of the bottle, therefore vacuum sealing it and preventing any contact with oxygen. Your wine stays fresh for up to a week for you to enjoy it longer. I got myself the pump by Le Creuset: http://www.lecreuset.co.uk/WA137.aspx and I’m very happy with it.

TIP: you can get great discount for it at Bicester Village Outlet Centre.
