How to preserve left over wine? Vacuum system

How to preserve your wine once it’s opened?

There are some ways to do that.

But I found vacuum pump is easiest and cheapest.

You just have to place stopper on top of the bottle and pump it for around 10 times.

You can pump out the air to avoid oxidation of wine.

You can keep your wine fresh for days after opening!

Fruity and easy drinking dry red wine with black berry, plum, chocolate aromas.

Great match with Chinese food. 

Have a nice weekend everyone!  Cheers~☺︎
