Vacuum Pumps

A basic system that won’t work miracles. You need one vacuum pumps per bottle, and this device will increase the wine’s shelf-life by a few days at most. In theory, it removes oxygen from the inside of the bottle and limits oxidation. In practice, every time the wine is served, air will enter the bottle so it is not optimal.

See visual representation of the inert Argon gas within the wine bottle to prevent oxidation below.
