What is albicchiere? Why do I need it?

Simply put, Albicchiere is a preservation system which allows it’s user to have a perfect pour of wine, every time.
Whenever you want, wherever you want.

You can seamlessly and easily change your wine selection, it will adjust to the perfect temperature in a few moments without a long cleaning process. Currently, most wines are consumable for several days to a week, after which, they spoil. Our system extends the life of the wine for up to six months after it’s first opening.

(Be cautious of those that state the introduction of argon allows wine to be preserved for up to 90 days, this is true, but only if you never separate the bottle from the dispenser! Once the bottle is removed, it is preserved for up to 24 hours).

You can enjoy your favorite white wine today and discover a great red wine tomorrow without worrying about the expiration date.

Albicchiere will alert you when your wine conditions are deteriorating, now you can enjoy your wine while never wasting a drop.
