VinoVinti enhances the wine experience by providing hands-on control over the flavor, feel and finish. Simple to use - NOTE: Wash rod and holder before first use. 1) Pour 1-2 oz of wine into a glass for comparison tasting and to create space for the rod. 2) Assemble rod and holder together and insert into stopper and place in bottle (check that the fit is secure. 3) Use vacuum pump until bubbles form. Once bubbles diminish (15 - 20 seconds) release stopper pressure (button on stopper top). 4) Remove rod from bottle and taste (repeat step 3 if needed). 5) Separate rod from holder, rinse well and let air dry. Enjoy!
