375ml air tight glass container kept in the fridge works great for up to 2-3 days. I rarely wait more than a day. I really don’t see the need for gadgets. Where do you buy your empty 375ml’s? And when you say airtight, you just screw the top on as tight as possible? Do you fill the 375 to the point...

Say you had a single bottle of 2009, would you drink it sooner rather than later? I usually like my roses and whites within a year or two of vintage date. Obviously this wine is a different animal. I’m not trying to let it sit for a decade, but not sure if it would greatly benefit from a year or two...
