Vinloq is the first system that Slow Decants and Preserves your favorite wines. Vinloq has three components, the stopper, the gas reservoir, and the gas dispenser. They all work together in a simple and efficient way. Unlike other methods that use high-pressure gas for preservation, Vinloq controls the amount of oxygen exposure by using nitrogen to fill the gas reservoir, which connects to the stopper that is inserted in your wine bottle. Take a look at our tutorial video here.
Slow Decanting™ is our revolutionary technology that slows down the decanting process. It limits but doesn’t totally block oxygen from entering your wine bottle. That’s because small, controlled amounts of oxygen exposure can make wine taste better. Only Vinloq gives you the control to find which expression of the wine you like the best with each passing day. The beauty of Slow Decanting™ is that your wine doesn’t need to leave the bottle, the magic happens inside the bottle, as the winemakers intended. Read our blog for more details here.
Yes! Vinloq uses nitrogen to preserve your wines.
Nitrogen is the largest component of the air that we breathe. Nitrogen is inert which means that it does not react with your wine. And because Vinloq moves nitrogen from the dispenser into your bottle without added pressure, this eliminates the risk of pressurized bottles.
There are several reasons we chose nitrogen. Apart from protecting wine from oxidation, nitrogen is better for you because it is cost-efficient. Nitrogen is better for your wine because you can use it on every bottle to make each one last longer, which reduces waste. Nitrogen is better for the environment because it is ~83 times more plentiful in the air and thus requires much less energy to isolate.
No. Vinloq is not yet suitable for sparkling or bubbly wines.
Yes. Vinloq can be used on bottles sealed with screw caps, corks, synthetic corks, and all other closures.
Great question! There is not a hard and fast answer to this question because every wine is different and many factors contribute to how a given wine responds to even small amounts of oxygen. Following the simple Vinloq process will minimize your bottle’s exposure to oxygen and most bottles will stay fresh for at least a week. Other wines can stay fresh significantly longer. Again, it all depends on how each wine responds differently to oxygenation.
Yes. Our design is patented in many countries. Vinloq® and Slow Decanting™ are also registered trademarks. (Patent No. 9,272,834 / 10,233,068 / 10,800,589)
Our Vinloq Stoppers allow you to store your wines on their side or upright. It all depends on how you want to store them.
We do recommend that you store wines overnight in your refrigerator to extend their freshness.
