Private Preserve and other solutions for preserving wine in an opened bottle

As many of you, I love a glass of fine wine...... In fact I love a glass of fine wine every evening with my meal.

Problem is, there are six glasses of wine in a bottle and I eat out 2-3 times a week. So an opened bottle could last me up to 10 days.

I have been using the Vacu Vin method of air removal by suction for the last few years with reasonnable success (ie. within 3-4 days of opening the wine is still drinkable after which quality drops off).

I have read about Private Preserve (the inert gas spray can) though have not yet found it in European shops (BTW. any European reader know where it can be purchased?)

General consensus seems positive about Private Preserve but I would ask the Chowhound Board experts what is their take on this solution to lenthen the life of the god -given pleasure once the cork is out of the bottle.

Also would be love to hear about other successful wine preserving solutions.

Thanks,

Aosta
