Nothing quite sets off a perfect holiday meal like a selection of incredible wines to pair with the dishes on your table. But pairing wines with dishes successfully can be difficult — and more often than not, downright intimidating. Not to mention the fact that opening six full bottles of wine at a small holiday dinner can seem irresponsible. Luckily, there’s an easy solve for both of these issues. For expert help on wine pairings, we spoke to Giselle Sigala, Wine & Spirits Specialist at Chelsea Wine Vault. Sigala started out her career as a classically trained chef in New York and Mexico City before moving into the world of wine. She’s a Certified Sommelier, and while her knowledge spans the globe and varieties of wine, her focus these days is on the intricacies of Burgundy and the unique and exciting spirits of Latin America. For the volume problem, add a Coravin Model Three to your holiday shopping list. Through clever design and technology, the Model Three allows you to pour single glasses from wine bottles without opening them. For more on the Coravin Model Three and to see Sigala’s wine pairings, read on below.
Coravin Model Three
The Coravin Model Three is the ultimate wine preservation system. As we mentioned above, it allows you to pour single glasses from a bottle of wine without opening it. It works by inserting a specially designed needle through the bottle’s natural cork closure, pressurizing the bottle with inert, medical-grade argon gas and pouring the wine into your glass. When you’re done, simply remove the System from the bottle. The cork closure will naturally reseal and the argon gas creates a blanket over the wine, protecting it from oxidation. All of that is to say, once you remove the Coravin System from the bottle, you can continue to savor that bottle for weeks, months or even years, without impacting the quality of the wine.
