I like wine. I like my liver. I don't like being wasteful. So what are some good ways to help preserve the freshness of a bottle of wine once it's been opened?
Years ago I tried this $10 plastic "hand vacuum" thingy that came with 2 plastic/rubber "corks" -- it really didn't seem to have any useful effect. The principle seems sound to me though, and a quick search yields a long list of gadgets with wildly varying prices ($10-$100's). In particular, this vacuum decanter
seems like it has potential; the stopper looks like it might be well-built enough to hold a seal, and having another decanter can't hurt... or am I just setting myself up for disappointment? Hive mind oenophiles, I await your wisdom.
