Coravin™ Needles are specially designed to pierce through natural or agglomerated cork and allow you to pour wine without opening the bottle. The thinner design of the Vintage Needle is ideal for older vintage bottles in your collection. It provides a gentle insertion through potentially fragile corks. All Coravin Needles are made of stainless steel with a non-stick coating, providing durability and easy insertion for hundreds of pours. Not compatible with the Pivot® Wine Preservation System.
I discovered the wine industry while working with Chef’s Thomas Keller and Joachim Splichal in the top dining rooms of Los Angeles. My passion redirected my career from restaurants/hotels to vineyards and wine-education. Now with over 25-years of experience hosting events; leading trips around the wine world; I published a wine book; produced my own wine called Beekeeper Cellars and sat for the difficult Master of Wine Exam! Today, I am considered one of the region's best wine educators and work for my 20,000 followers (follow me), visiting vineyards and wine regions and produce over 100 wine classes and events a year for my businesses and my team.
