VineyardFresh FAQs

How does VineyardFresh Wine Preserver preserve open wine?

VineyardFresh is heavier than air and lighter than wine. It settles directly on the wine and creates a natural protective barrier between the air and wine, thereby preventing oxidation.

 

Will VineyardFresh Wine Preserver harm my wine?

No. VineyardFresh is 100% pure and natural, never penetrates into the wine and is totally harmless, tasteless, and odorless. In fact, it's the same wine preserver process used by professional wineries around the world.

How long will VineyardFresh Preserve my wine?

VineyardFresh Wine Preserver will keep wine fresh for days, weeks, and even months.

How many bottles of wine will I be able to keep fresh with a single canister?

Each regular retail canister of VineyardFresh will have a minimum of  50 applications of wine fresh. Institutional version will save 120 bottles of wine and our newer travel size will save 15. 

Why does VineyardFresh canister feels so light and how will I know when it is empty?

VineyardFresh is 100% pure and natural Argon. A heavy gas, however any gas (think balloons), which makes a full can feel like its empty. You'll know VineyardFresh is empty when you tilt the nozzle and it stops hissing. If you feel VineyardFresh gas coming out of the can, it is still working.

Does VineyardFresh work with anything else to preserve?

Yes. Any liquid that is in a bottle and prone to oxidizing. For example, use each time you store your favorite vintage port, sherry, single-malt Scotch, sake, and even cooking wines. Another major culinary use would be for your high end specialty cooking oils. Keep oils fresh by keeping them out of sunlight, in a cool space and preserved with VineyardFresh

Do restaurants use a wine preservation system for their "wines by the glass"?

Every restaurant should, but unfortunately all too many do not. VineyardFresh is used in many restaurants, hotels and private clubs. More are learning everyday and anywhere wine by the glass is sold needs to have a preservation system. As consumers we all deserve a fresh glass and restaurants need to know that their reputation depends on it. Quality glasses means repeat and increased sales. Please tell them about VineyardFresh.

What makes VineyardFresh better than other wine preservation methods such as vacuum pumps?

VineyardFresh, using 100% argon, is foolproof since it is based on science.  Very easy to use and works great (click here for how it works). 

Vacuum products attempt to remove the air between the wine and the cork. Vaccums can only remove a small fraction of the air (and therefore oxygen, which is what causes oxidation). It is impossible to draw a pure vacuum, although it can draw enough to cause the rubber stopper to adhere for a limited period of time (this is what gives it some of a suction "pop".

Unfortunately, it cannot stop the oxidation process. The second less desirable factor is that the wine experts we know, dislike the fact that vacuums, by nature, pull out the bouquet or the aromas in wine. 70% of enjoying wine is in the smell (that is why we swirl the glass, to release the aromatics while tasting. The term "flattening" the wine by pulling out the aroma and bouquet is often used.

What about products using other gases (i.e. carbon dioxide)?

Carbon dioxide is not an inert gas and will react with the wine. Carbon dioxide will react with the water in the wine and form carbonic acid affecting the flavor. Nitrogen is lighter than oxygen and therefore cannot blanket the wine, however, it will work in a closed system. Other 100% argon systems, although usually much more costly, will certainly work.
