Yep, I regularly open more than one bottle of sensational wine at a time. Let’s face it who’s happy with less than 3 glasses of different Filth AKA Wine in front of them. End result left overs! By the next day, when I’m looking for something to pour on my Weaties, the vino that was an absolute PLEASURE FESTA the night before is just a shadow of its former self. No longer the vibrant, beautiful, creature that had passed my lips only hours earlier, but, sad, tired, withered up and DEAD! Murdered by evil oxygen.
After a few too many bottles of Filthy Good Vino going to waste, I had a revelation. I was responsible for the MURDER of the ones I loved. Some of you might say I’m a bit soft and just need to add a spoonful of concrete to the mix, keep on training … pass me that waiter’s friend please… harden up and finish the bottle(s) on the night.
In my defence I offer the following:
- Those of you that have shared a glass, plate and table with me will know, I have a genetic inability to quickly process the bi-products of metabolising alcohol. Just watch as I go bright red at the sound of a cork popping!
- Some times, on school nights, the Mrs and I just feel like a glass each and have the better portion of a bottle left over.
I have a solution! It’s not some crazy wine preserving system with a vacuum or pressurised Argon to “remove” or “replace” the air in the bottle. Best thing is, it’s free and you’ve probably got all the kit you need floating around your home. Check out the video above. After you’ve watched it, if you feel like donating to “Kaani 2012” to help me drink more Filthy Good Vino and stop the insanity, get in touch or drop around with a tube of Filth.
Works fantastically with old wine too! Giving you the chance to open something from the cellar have a glass a night over a few nights without wasting a drop!
I’ve been meaning to share this for some time. A recent post by La Donna Del Vino inspired me to take action. Check out La Donna Del Vino’s Blog Post “In the Face of a Deluge of Red Wine” for some other solutions to this horrific crime!
