About Coravin Model Eleven
Coravin Model Eleven is the company's first connected and fully automatic wine preservation system. Designed incorporating consumer insights, 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.
Coravin Model Eleven connects via Bluetooth to the Coravin Moments app to make it easier to maintain and monitor usage, adjust pour size and speed, and ensure a great glass of wine with each pour. Coravin Moments is also available for download to enable all 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.
