Save Your Wine: Win a Vacu Vin

Vacu Vin giveawayIf you find yourself pouring wine down the drain because it went bad before you drank it, have I got the thing for you. It’s called Vacu Vin, and it sucks air out of the wine bottle, prolonging its life a little longer. This box contains the pump with two stoppers, which are reusable.

I use mine all the time and have an extra one that’s never been opened.

I decided, once I read about this wonderful idea called The Bloggy Giveaway, that I would give this one away instead of letting it collect dust.  All you have to do is leave a wine-related comment on this post, and I will choose a random winner this Friday, April 25.

Though I love international readers, due to shipping costs, I can only send this to readers in the U.S.

Head over to that link at Don’t Try This at Home to see all the other great contests! Lots of fun things to win. I’ve got my eye on some gift cards….

      cool contest Farley.
      This is not an entry though – I already have a vacuvin. :)

      We try to drink a glass of red wine daily around here…good for the heart. But sometimes we don’t get around to it and the bottle goes bad. This would be great to help save the wine!

    • http://thehaffnerhome.blogspot.com Crystal

      SO TRUE!! We love to drink wine and always end up wasting so much!! I would love to win this and try it out!! Thanks for doing the giveaway!

    • Sandra

      I don’t drink wine but my husband does. Thankfully he never finishes a bottle in one sitting by himself…and as a result it will occasionally be wasted! This would solve this problem. Very cool.

      I’m definitely guilty of letting more than one bottle of wine go bad because I couldn’t finish it off fast enough! This seems like such a cool giveaway!

      What a great idea! While I like a glass of wine with a nice dinner, I’m reluctant to buy a bottle when I know some of it will go to waste. Please enter me!

      Now this is something I could make use of. I use wine often for cooking, but I am allergic to the alcohol if I just drink it straight. I would love to be able to keep my wine fresher for even a few days, in order to be able to use it up in a variety of dishes, since I can’t just drink what remains in the bottle.

      Have you tried Rex Goliath yet? It’s a smooth wine at an extremely good price ($7). I know! It sounds too cheap to be good but it is!

      I LOVE my VacuVin! I don’t need another one, but I just wanted to give my kudos to the product. I actually have a small collection of stoppers, and have been known to use it to seal up liquor bottles so I can store them without fear of leakage.
      Also, since I often have 3-4 open bottles due to my tasting habits, the tool has been very successful in keeping things fresh.

      Although I don’t like wine that much, my mom and grandmother love it. Some say I am very strange because I say that wine taste like beer. My grandmother is so funny when she drinks wine, all she has to do is have one sip and her cheeks immediatly turn red, kind of funny since she likes red wine because her cheeks match the wine.

    • http://simplythrifty.com Deb Ng

      I love it, Farley. My husband and I enjoy wines but don’t always drink a full bottle each time we open one.

      I searched but didn’t see anything, have you ever written a piece on the shelf life of an open & corked bottle of wine?

    • http://thedirtywork.blogspot.com Patti

      My husband and I make our own wine. It is a lot of work, but a lot of fun. We have yet to figure out exactly what kind of grapes we have, but I know they make great wine!

    • Lisa O

      I need this. My favorite recipes is the Shrimp Feta Cheese pasta on http://www.allrecipes.com and it calls for a little bit of white wine. I get so tired of throwing out the rest when I make this.

    • http://threeofakindblog.wordpress.com Dawn

      This would be great for our house because my husband isn’t that big of a wine drinker now I won’t have to worry if he’s around to help me with the bottle ;)

      I actually have this gadget. (Ok, I am a gadget junkie) I love it! It really works to keep wine fresh. My fridge is small, and I have to lay my bottles down. The stopper keeps the wine from dripping.

    • http://www.catintheadage.blogspot.com Elizabeth

      Love this idea for a giveaway! I love to use wine in cooking, but we don’t drink it much. So finding a way to keep a bottle fresh longer would be great.

      Well, I will tell you that my brother who lives alone and loves to open a bottle of wine, but only drinks one glass at most would totally benefit from this. I thought hmm.. I’ll get him some 1/2 bottles of wine, this way he won’t waste so much. BUT! he had the hardest time getting the synthetic cork back in the bottle, you think it’s hard getting in the 750 ml, well, he chiseled away at it for 5 mins. before it would fit back in. I truly think he needs a vacu-vin. :)

      Cheers, P

    • KELLY N.

      I was thinking on giving this to my mother in law if I won but she would have no use for it because her wine never stays long enough in the bottle to go bad. :)
