Auckland, NZ. (February 22, 2016) – St Vincent’s Cave announced today an agreement with Coravin Inc. to make available the revolutionary Coravin Wine Access System for customers in New Zealand and The Pacific Islands. The system allows wine enthusiasts around the globe to pour wine without pulling the cork. After launching the game-changing wine access system in the U.S. and Europe, Coravin is responding to a rapidly growing overseas demand by giving international consumers, as well as commercial restaurants and wineries, access to the Coravin Model Two and its accessories.
Launched in July 2013 in the U.S., the Coravin system forever changed the way wine is served, sold and enjoyed. The ground-breaking wine access technology leaves the cork in place, safeguarding the wine from oxidation and thus allowing wine enthusiasts to enjoy wine by the glass without committing to the bottle. Now wine enthusiasts can easily pair wine with food, compare between vintages and vineyards, and so much more.

St Vincent’s Cave founder and director, Sophie Cotter said: “Here, at St Vincent’s Cave, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to exclusively bring Coravin to New Zealand and The Pacific Islands and allow our customers to enjoy this revolutionary new way to enjoy wine”.
