D. Installing and Optimizing Capsules

Getting the Most Out of Coravin Pure Capsules

On average, each Coravin Pure Capsule will enable you to pour about fifteen 5 ounce glasses of wine. To get the most out of each Coravin Pure Capsule, we recommend setting your slider to a slower pour speed. If you hear a hissing sound when you stand your bottle up after pouring you are using more Argon gas than is necessary for your pour. Consider decreasing the pour size to ensure better optimization. And, don’t forget, it takes more Argon gas to pour when you get down to the bottom of the bottle, so pull the cork if you know you will be drinking the rest of the bottle that day.
