Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse Keeps Up To Date With the New Coravin System to Cater to Wine-Loving Guests
There’s nothing better than having a glass of wine when you are dining at one of your favorite restaurants on a special night out. The problem with ordering just one glass of wine is that you’re never too sure when that bottle was opened, and how long it was exposed to oxygen, its arch-nemesis. When not properly preserved, oxidation will flatten an opened bottle of wine, making it lose its aromas and flavor rapidly. Luckily for wine lovers, Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse in Atlanta has invested in the new wine preservation system, the Coravin.
The Coravin is a stainless steel contraption looking similar to a small microscope. It incorporates a long needle that is inserted through the foil and cork, through which (as much or as little) wine is extracted. The remaining space is filled with inert argon gas from a little replaceable cylinder screwed into the system. When the needle is extracted, the springy cork reseals itself and the only trance that remains is a little pinprick in the foil. The Coravin can effectively preserve a bottle of wine for months on end.
Davio’s Atlanta will be implementing a 3 bottle special By-The-Glass program. Their featured wines will be reds for the winter with the exception of one desert wine.
