2 Test: Brookstone Wine Preserver

UNDATED -- If you can't finish that great bottle of wine, what do you do? You can put a cork back in, but that only works for a day or two. If you want to store it longer, you might have thought about trying the Brookstone Automatic Wine Preserver. It costs $30 and Jesse Jones from our sister station KING5 took it to J. Bookwalter winery to test it out.

They opened two bottles of wine, and corked one with a traditional cork, and the other with a Brookstone Automatic Wine Preserver. It claims to pump the air out of the bottle and secure it to prevent oxidation. There's even a screen that tells you when you last opened the bottle.

They put both bottles back in the fridge, and returned four days later. John Bookwalter, J. Bookwalter wine maker, tried both wines in a blind taste test. He chose the wine poured from the bottle using the electronic wine preserver and gave it a big thumbs up.

Of course, Bookwalter said one fool proof way to not need the wine preserver is to finish the whole bottle of wine.
