What is the Pivot® Wine Preservation System?
The Pivot Wine Preservation System is an exciting new wine preservation option that allows you to extend the life of your everyday wines. For bottles you expect to finish over the course of days or weeks, the ingenious combination of the Pivot Stopper and the Device keeps the remaining wine fresh for up to 4 weeks ensuring the last glass is just as amazing as the first.
The Pivot System is easy to use and works with any still wine regardless of closure type: natural cork, synthetic, glass, or screwcap. Simply open the bottle and immediately insert the Pivot Stopper. Pour a glass of Cabernet at the end of a long day or pair your favorite Riesling with Tuesday night takeout. The choice is yours.
How is the Pivot System different from other wine preservation systems?
Many other systems work by removing air that has already entered the bottle, which will only preserve wine for a few days. If used correctly the Pivot will preserve wine appearance, aroma, and flavor for up to 4 weeks. It delivers the best-in-class short-term wine preservation in the market for under $100.

What testing have you done to prove the Pivot System works?
All Coravin products undergo a robust series of internal and external testing to ensure performance. This includes testing across a variety of wine types as well as different storage temperatures and positions. To determine preservation performance, we conduct blind taste tests between “accessed” bottles and new control bottles from the same case of wine at various time intervals. Through this testing, we have repeatedly proven that the Pivot System effectively preserves wines up to 4 weeks based on proper usage and storage conditions.
In addition to our internal testing, we are proud to work with leading wine industry professionals to test our products in their homes and provide feedback. In this way, we have confirmed our lab results with real world performance.
Do I remove the cork when using the Pivot?
Yes, remove the cork with a corkscrew and immediately replace it with the Pivot Stopper.
Does the Pivot System require a Coravin Needle?
No, it does not. The Pivot is equipped with a Wine Tube that allows easy access to the wine through the Stopper.
Does Pivot use the same Coravin Pure™ Capsules?
Yes, the Pivot System uses the same, trusted Coravin Pure™ Capsules as the original Coravin Systems.

Wine will not pour
Possible Cause: No gas
Solution: Ensure there is gas in the system. Press the button on the Pivot Device. If you do not hear a hiss sound, replace the Coravin Pure™ Capsule.
Possible Cause: The Pivot may need to be cleaned.
Solution: Clean the system on a regular basis by running a small stream of warm water through the spout for a few seconds. Let the water flow out of the tube. Remove from the water and give the button a short press to clear any droplets. Dry with a soft cloth.
Wine is leaking when I attempt to pour
Possible Cause: The Pivot Device may not be securely attached to the Stopper on the bottle.
Solution: Ensure the Pivot Device is securely attached to the Stopper on the bottle. You should feel or hear a slight “click” when it is securely attached.
Possible Cause: The Stopper is not fully inserted into the bottle
Solution: Ensure the Silicone Rings on the Stopper and the inside of the bottle neck are dry before using and that it is fully inserted into the bottle. There should be no gap between the bottle neck and the Stopper.
Wine leaks/drips before I begin to pour and makes a mess
Possible Cause: Gravity
Solution: Ensure you have the spout over the glass before tipping the bottle to pour as gravity may cause some dripping once you tip the bottle.
The wine pours too fast
Possible Cause: Too much gas initially inserted
Solution: Use a short press of the button to start the flow of wine. Then you can control your pour by lightly pressing the button until you get the pour that you want.
The Stopper does not fit into the bottle/ the Stopper is loose in the bottle
Possible Cause: The Stopper has not been tightly inserted onto the bottle
Solution: Ensure Silicone Rings on the Stopper and the inside of the bottle neck are dry. Press the Stopper firmly into place so it is securely seated in the bottle. There should no gap between the bottle neck and the Stopper.
Possible Cause: You may have a very unusual bottle neck.
Solution: The Pivot Stopper has been designed and tested to fit most bottle necks on the market, but there may be a few out there that we have not found. If you have a bottle that simply does not work with the Pivot Stopper, please let us know so we can improve our product!
Possible Cause: The wine bottle format is too large
Solution: The Pivot System is compatible with all still wine closure types and bottle shapes. It has been tested on standard 750 ml and 1.5L Magnum bottles. It is not designed to work with larger format bottles.
The Pivot twists when I attempt to pour
Possible Cause: The Pivot Device may not be securely attached to the Stopper that is on the bottle
Solution: Ensure the Pivot Device is securely attached to the Stopper that is on the bottle. You should feel or hear a slight “click” when it is securely attached.
The Capsule Cup will not seal
Possible Cause: The threads of the Capsule Cup need to be cleaned
Solution: Clean the threads on the Capsule Cup and on the device with a lint-free, damp cloth when changing the Capsule. Dry the threads before reattaching the Cup.
Not getting 20 pours per capsule
Possible Cause: Capsule Cup is not tightened enough
Solution: Ensure the Capsule Cup is tightly attached and is flush with the system. Clean the Cup threads and the Device threads when changing the Capsule.
Possible Cause: Pouring more than 5 ounces/150ml per pour
Solution: To optimize your pour, use a short press of the button and let the wine flow. If you wish a bit more just give the button another quick press to reach the amount of wine that you want!
