General Questions

What is a Coravin Pure™ Capsule?

Coravin Pure™ Capsules power all Coravin Wine Preservation Systems, by pressurizing an unopened bottle of wine with Argon gas to pour a sip, a glass, or more. But not all Argon gas is born equal. Only Coravin Pure™ Capsules utilize our proprietary Four Point Purity Process. Each Capsule pours about 15, 5 ounce glasses of wine.

How much wine can I pour with each Coravin Capsule?

Each Coravin Pure™ Capsule will allow you to pour approximately 15, 5 ounce glasses of wine (equivalent to 75 ounces). Capsule longevity will vary depending on how you use the Coravin System and how often and how much you pressurize each bottle.

Do Coravin Pure™ Capsules work with all Coravin Systems?

Yes, all Coravin Systems use the same Coravin Pure™ Capsules.

Can I use non-Coravin Capsules with my Coravin System?

No. It is important to only use official Coravin Capsules with your Coravin System. Coravin Capsules are specially designed to work with the Coravin System to ensure safe operation and optimal preservation of your wine.

WARNING: Gas Capsules are under high pressure. The Coravin System is designed to work ONLY with genuine Coravin Capsules. Use of non-Coravin capsules, re-use of any part of the Capsule, or connection to sources of gas other than Coravin Capsules is dangerous and may cause injury to users or others nearby. Use of large capacity gas sources with the Coravin System can result in gas leaks which could cause serious injury or death. Large capacity gas sources are NEITHER tested NOR approved by Coravin. The use of alternative gas sources will void the System warranty and remove all responsibility of Coravin from any issues or injury that may arise. For more information contact Coravin Customer Service.
