Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

First - yes this works better than vacuum wine stoppers like Vacuvin.
C. Kendrick
With The Keeper system (and two extra taps), I can have a Cab, Pinot, and even a 3rd bottle (Zin, Italian, or even a vintage Port) open and ready for drinking.

I have had a wine open for a month and this system has kept it good as new.

The Keeper system has changed the way I drink wine. In the past I'd hesitate to open a favorite bottle of wine, knowing that it wouldn't be finished without more guests over. Or we'd use a spray preserver for the 2nd half of that Napa Cab after our steak dinner, but then the next dinners wouldn't be Cab-friendly.

With The Keeper system (and two extra taps), I can have a Cab, Pinot, and even a 3rd bottle (Zin, Italian, or even a vintage Port) open and ready for drinking. Since it's a closed system and air doesn't touch the wine, it stays in perfect condition until I'm ready to drink it. A glass of Cab one night, Pinot the next - and no rush to finish the bottle before the wine goes off.

This system is more expensive than the vacuum pumps and sprays, but it works much, much better. Those other systems help a wine last a couple more days, but this system keeps the wine in top condition for weeks. The nitrogen tank lasts at least the stated 20 bottles of wine, if not more.

Verified Purchase
This is one of the best gifts I have ever received. I love wine, but it's rare that we can go through an entire bottle on an average night. I do not like the way wine tastes the next day - even with those devices that sucks out all the air. This system is fantastic. It keeps wine tasting as if it was just opened, for days. Now I can open a nice wine on Monday, and it's OK if I don't finish it until Friday. :-) Highly recommend this product. Make sure you order extra canisters!

pro:
1) it works
2) easy to assemble and use
3) the spout makes it easy to pour wine into glass

con:
1) difficult to store the wine bottle in fridge with the dispenser head
2) there are 2 pieces of rubber tube which are telescoped to each other. One tends to fall of when removing/placing the dispenser on the bottle.

recs:
1) place the dispenser on the bottle immediately after it opens. This limits the volume of air already exposed to air.

uses:
1) enjoy great wine without the pressure the finish same day
2) great for volatile wine

I really did my research on this, and WineKeeper is the one to buy.

First - yes this works better than vacuum wine stoppers like Vacuvin. Here's the best resource I found comparing them. It's for Wine Saver Pro, which is the same approach as WineKeeper (pump wine out of bottle by inserting inert gas):

[...]

In case the link goes dead, it's a review done with bar/restaurant owners as the audience. They compared a bunch of wines, tasted by a bunch of reviewers, over 2 weeks, with various preservation systems. All the systems did reasonably well with white wines, but everything except the gas blanket systems (like WineKeeper) did far worse for reds.

In a nutshell, with a system like Wine Saver Pro or WineKeeper, you can keep a wine with minor degradation for one week, moderate for two weeks, and the degree of degradation varies a lot by wine. This matches my personal experience using the product for the last 4 months, after having used Vacuvin sporadically for a few years before then.

Aside from the imperfect vacuum of Vacuvin and issues with the stoppers occasionally losing the seal, the problem is that you typically only vacuum out the wine after it's been sitting open all evening. So it's already very oxidized and Vacuvin doesn't slow things down enough, so most red wines are severely degraded the very next day, in my experience. But with WineKeeper you uncork the wine and immediately stick the WineKeeper stopper in it and there's no air involved from then on, just the tiny bit in the neck.

Then, as far as which system to buy - you don't want any kind of wooden rack or enclosure or anything.

Initially it was good at preserving red wine for 5-7 days, but then one stopper faucet broke, and then the second. The stop for the stopper in a thin piece of plastic. When I contacted the company they said it is not a warranty issue because it is usually due to over tightening. Well I tightened it the same every time, it just seems the plastic stop gets brittle with age and then breaks AND falls into the bottle of wine. They want $18 per for repair of each stopper and return shipment, which is not bad, but if it happens again and again? Asked if the stopper has been modified to make it more durable, and waiting for a response before deciding what to do. Will get back when I hear from them.

I have been using the Wine Keeper for the last 3 to 4 years. The good news is that it works as advertised and has been trouble free. The bad news is that I now drink more wine. ;-)

Before the wine keeper I was reluctant to open anything but the cheapest bottle of red unless I knew it would be consumed in less than two days. With the wine keeper this concern is gone and I can now open a quality bottle of wine with little concern for how long it will remain open. This completely changed my drinking habits and now I commonly have a glass with dinner most every night. A bottle can sit on the counter in this "open" state for a week with no apparent change in quality. In fact, I find with some wines they actually improve on the second or third day. I'm not sure what is happening, and I might just be fooling myself, but it may be some form of slowed decantering playing out as there is some oxidation.

In any case, I love this devise and I can't imagine not having it. If you like to have a glass of red wine with dinner or in the evening but don't typically consume a bottle in a day or two, I highly recommend the Wine Keeper or any similar system. A DIY type could build their own system easily enough. There really isn't much to this but the Wine Keeper provides you everything you need without fuss.

The only downside with this system is having to replace the nitrogen canisters when they go empty. While they aren't ridiculously expensive they are more expensive than they need to be because of the shipping charges for hazardous materials (nitrogen isn't hazardous but any compressed gas creates some risk when in transit). But 4 bottles lasts me a about a year so that really isn't too bad. It's too bad that the local wine stores don't carry this system.
