Coravin

 

Revolutionising the way diners order and drink wine, the ground breaking new system, Coravin, is now available at The Chester Grosvenor, allowing us to offer nearly any wine by the glass, so long as it is sealed by a cork.

Coravin was designed by a MIT graduate in the US who sought to find a solution when his wife’s pregnancy affected her ability to share a bottle of red with him. Launched in the US last year, it has yet to be introduced to the UK retail market but has been adopted by some the best restaurants in London and its popularity is spreading.

Coravin works by injecting Argon, an inert gas into the bottle before ejecting the wine through a fine, medical grade needle. This prevents any oxidation of the wine which could ruin a wine’s development. Once the device is removed from the cork, the only evidence is a tiny hole in the top of the capsule as the wine reseals itself.

Visit The Arkle Bar and Lounge to discover more about both the innovative device and the extensive selection of wines available.
