Coravin Announces Availability of Model Eleven - First Connected Wine Preservation System

Posted on October 16, 2018

BURLINGTON, Mass., Oct. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Coravin Inc. today announced the global availability of Coravin Model Eleven, the company's first connected and fully automatic wine preservation system. Coravin's app, Coravin Moments™, is also available for download and enables wine lovers to discover unique pairing experiences for wines with food, music, TV, movies, and more. The app creates memorable wine moments for all types of wine drinkers from the casual wine enthusiast to serious wine collectors. Wine lovers have the freedom to enjoy bottles of wine by the glass with curated moments.

Designed with consumer insights in mind, the new, intuitive Model Eleven is faster, easier and more fun than pulling the cork. Users can pour a sip, a glass, or more, simply by placing the Coravin Model Eleven on top of the bottle and pressing the needle down through the cork. The light ring on the Coravin Model Eleven will turn green, indicating it is ready to pour. Then, just tip the bottle with one hand and the wine will automatically start flowing. The Model Eleven lets users set the flow rate, so they can easily pour a little to taste, a glass to enjoy, or more to share.

Connectivity to the Coravin Moments App

The Model Eleven connects via Bluetooth to the Coravin Moments app to make it easier to maintain and monitor usage and ensure a great glass of wine with each pour. Along with color LED icons on the Coravin Model Eleven, the app indicates the level of argon gas left in the Model Eleven's Coravin Pure™ Capsule, keeps track of needle usage and the need for replacement, adjusts speed of pour, and monitors battery life. Auto replenishment of Coravin Pure Capsules and replacement Coravin Needles can also be enabled through the app, so wine lovers are always able to pour from and preserve the bottles they love.

In addition to monitoring and controlling the Model Eleven, Coravin Moments includes a photo capture feature and a flavor mapping tool that can be used by all wine lovers, whether they are starting their wine journey or are wine connoisseurs, and whether they own a Coravin or not. With the photo capture feature, users can add and manage wines in their own virtual cellar. The wines are then automatically mapped for easy visualization based on their characteristics - from light to bold, earthy to fruity.

Through a partnership with Delectable, the leading social focused wine app from Vinous, Coravin Moments offers recommendations on unique wine pairings for everything from food to film to music and movies. Beginning later this year, users will be able to create, edit and share their own wine moments in the App.

"We've received a tremendously positive response from both the wine and technology industries since announcing the Coravin Model Eleven earlier this year, and now wine lovers will be able to experience it for themselves," said Frédéric Levy, CEO of Coravin. "The Model Eleven takes what everyone loves about our existing Coravin Systems and amplifies the experience as we continue to drive our mission of changing the way the world drinks wine."

The Coravin Model Eleven launch kit comes with everything you need for a complete Coravin experience, including six Coravin Pure Capsules, enough to pour more than 90 glasses of wine. It also contains a Coravin Aerator, a set of standard size Coravin Screw Caps, a die cast brushed metal display base and a USB charging cord, all in an elegant carry case.

Coravin Model Eleven is available both online and in select stores at Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Sur La Table and Total Wine, as well as at Coravin.com. The Model Eleven launch kit, valued at $1,275.65 is available for an introductory price of $999.95. The Coravin Moments app is free and available for download on Apple iOS mobile devices.
