You’ve opened a bottle of your favorite wine, enjoyed a few glasses and now it’s time to go. There are several ways to preserve the remains of the day but if you’re looking for an easy, light-weight, collapsible container to pack and enjoy your wine wherever you go the PlatyPreserve made by Cascade offers a portable system that promises to keep your vino enjoyable for weeks.
The Seattle-based, outdoor gear company designs hydration and water filtration systems for backcountry hikers, bikers and campers and repurposed the technology to preserve wine. The PlatyPreserve stores the remains of each bottle in a sealable pouch safe from oxygen exposure. If not properly preserved wine can go bad in as little as 2 to 8 hours so protecting the taste of an opened bottle of wine by completely eliminating the presence of oxygen means that it can live a little longer and you have the flexibility to enjoy another glass at your leisure.
