Winedoctor kit solo keeps good wine from going bad. The solo includes 1 grip-touch pump that works with the intell-stopper to remove the precise amount of air from wine bottles, ensuring that even days later, the wine will be as fresh and fragrant as when it was opened.
The intelli-stopper is a new high-tech “cork” that virtually eliminates wine losing flavor and aroma in unfinished bottles for over a week. The winedoctor kit solo allows wines to store flat or standing to maximize chilling and storage space.
The problem with current wine preservers is that there is no indication if enough air has been pumped out of the bottle.
