Coravin: Important Safety Notice

I am happy to purchase anyone's clearly dangerous and defective Coravin product, even without the wine wetsuit, for a cool $50. Now you might think "Hey, that's a sixth of what I paid for it!" But just think, I'm actually paying you to make your home a safer place. Until you take me up on the offer,...
