What do you do if you’ve opened a bottle of wine but didn’t finish it? Thumbs Up, a UK-based company, has the answer to that question with their Automatic Wine Preserver. This battery-operated device fits over the bottle opening; press a button, and the Wine Preserver automatically pumps out up to 75% of the air in the headroom, preventing oxidation that ruins the flavor. The preserver also has a display that shows the bottle’s temperature in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius. The information says this will work with wine or champagne, but I personally wonder how removing air from the bottle will keep the fizz in the champagne… The Automatic Wine Preserver will be available this month for £24.99 (about $34). It’s available now for pre-order from Play.com in the UK. Play will deliver worldwide.
