How effective is the Vacuvin Concerto?

eternal | Dec 4, 2013 02:30 PM

Hey chowhound. I picked up a vacuvin from amazon the other day and tried it out on this bottle of red wine, but I noticed it had started to get sour a few hours after dinner when I tried it last night, and it was much more sour by this morning. I pumped it until I heard the clicks and everything, and I didn't leave the bottle lying open during dinner. The bottle has never been in the fridge.

Is this normal? I'm a beginner so I'm pretty sure that if I can taste the difference, most people can. It doesn't taste too different from when I tried this before getting a pump, but I don't /think/ I misused the device...
