Nscessity Wine Preserver


The Nscessity NSVWS-10 is a vacuum wine sealer - it removes air from open bottles of wine and reseals them with a rubber seal - allowing you to enjoy them another evening. Unfortunately, when wine is exposed to the air it causes oxidisation to occur in the wine and this can lead it to lose its flavour. This wonderful little gadget prevents that from happening and preserves the wine and all its flavour for you to enjoy at a later date.
