Private preserve allows
the safe preservation of an opened bottle of wine using an inert gas mixture.
Private Preserve is an exciting break through in preserving Wine, Port, Sherry,
Cognac or Single Malt Whisky. Tests in California have shown that Private
Preserve can keep wine fresh for a full year without any deterioration in
bouquet or oxidation which is common with vacuum systems. Each canister of
Private Preserve contains 600 separate sprays which can be used to preserve up
to 100 bottles.
How Private Preserve Works
Private preserve is a unique gas that lays a blanket over the wine. Private
Preserve's gases are heavier than air, and thus displace oxygen from the surface
of the wine. Private Preserve therefore prevents the wine from oxidizing (spoiling). The mixture of gases in Private Preserve are inert, harmless,
tasteless and completely environmentally safe.
How Private Preserve Is Used
Private Preserve has an
extension tube that is attached to the spray head. You simply insert the tube
into the neck of the wine bottle and spray. The wine bottle is then
re-corked and stored upright.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Why not just use a
First of all, vacuum systems do not work (Wall Street Journal 12/12/88); they
are not effective in removing enough oxygen to prevent oxidation. Secondly,
vacuum systems also remove the wine's bouquet.
- Does Private
Preserve interfere with the taste of the wine?
Absolutely Not! There are no chemicals in Private Preserve, it is an inert,
harmless, tasteless gas. Private Preserve actually helps preserve the wine's
bouquet, unlike vacuum wine saving products.
- How long will
Private Preserve keep wine fresh?
Whilst on test in California a bottle was kept for full year without any
deterioration in the wine. Please note that wines vary in their ability to be
preserved for long periods of time. Private Preserve will only keep wines
fresh for as long as the wine can be kept fresh, typically the wine should be
consumed within a few weeks.
- How quickly does
the cork or the stopper need to be replaced after spraying the gas?
As quickly as possible as air currents passing over the top of the bottle
can disturb the Private Preserve gases on the surface of the wine.
- Why is the Private
Preserve canister so light?
Because all that it contains is a mixture of inert gases. In fact the same
gases are used by wineries when they bottle their wines.
