Life’s a bitch sometimes, from work angst to sleep deprivation to general stress. Which means … sometimes you just need a glass of wine at the end of the day. (Read: a glass, not a bottle … I’m not an alcoholic. (Promise.)) You get home, pop the cork of your favorite house wine (a couple of my favorites that I try to have on-hand are Ménage à Trois red blend and Francis Coppola Claret), have a glass, and then you’re faced with the conundrum: do I keep drinking and therefore ruin any chances I have of working out in the morning and perpetuate the fat-girl cycle, or do I put a cork in it and have a less-delicious glass tomorrow?
Here’s your solution: Savino. This handy little lifesaver will keep your wine decently fresh for (as I tasted) about 6 days. Which means: no more bottle waste guilt keeping you from your morning run.
Savino is a decanter with a seal and floater with 15 years of research behind it. The floater remains in the decanter (even while pouring), and I’m not sure why, but it seems to work … so I won’t ask questions. They suggest keeping the Savino in the fridge, which, for some, might be a turn off. (Cold reds aren’t my favorite, but I let it sit for a few minutes before drinking it and it wasn’t too off-putting.)
It comes in glass or plastic, made from high quality Flint Glass and BPA FreeTritan (respectively). The plastic version even offers a locking lid. Both hold a standard bottle of wine (750ml), are dishwasher safe, and fit in most refrigerators. (For you outdoor concert-goers, the plastic one is the perfect solution to keeping bugs out of your wine!) Oh, and it’s pretty sexy-looking.
Generally, the product is a great solution to wasted wine. For $29.95 for the plastic “Enthusiast” version, or $59.95 for the glass “Connoisseur” version, it’ll help cut your wine costs … and the cost of buying a new wardrobe to fit your muffin top in.
