Vacu Vin Wine Saver Vacuum Pump

I love having the occasional bottle of wine, but I’m the only one in the house who drinks it and always feel rushed to finish it within a day or two. Vacu Vin’s vacuum wine pump is great for me because it extends the wine’s shelf life closer to a week. They say it goes up to two weeks, but I haven’t tested that theory.

After you’ve poured what you want, you just wet the little rubber stopper, place it in the bottle opening, then place the pump over the top and pump 5-6 times or until you hear it click. The next time you want to open that bottle, push the rubber stopper’s air valve to one side and then pull the whole thing out. Pretty easy.

Get it for $10 on Amazon. Comes with two stoppers, so you can store two bottles at once — whether red or white.
