One of the things I’m not happy about with the eto is that having poured and then pushed the plunger down to seal there are still drips of wines left in the neck and on top of the valve, which a day later can smell a little so I’m a little reluctant to add to that on a daily basis (I have one glass a night every night); not such a problem if you are taking out say two glasses each serving. That smell is not a huge problem but sometimes I actually completely remove the whole plunger assembly and pour straight from the glass. Other times, after pouring and resealing, I’ve actually rinsed the top part with water, which is not a problem if your eto is sealing properly! (See previous post above).
Also I don’t really have room for the whole thing in my fridge. So I compromise. I have a bunch of half bottles and Vinolok glass stoppers so I put half in one of them and pop that in the fridge and the remainder in the eto less one glass for that night. So the eto is only actually poured from twice.
It’s probably just me being a little over fussy I guess as I never really had a problem with the whole bottle in the eto. So basically I get two and half glasses from the eto and two and half from the half bottle!
Being the sole drinker in the house and a light drinker at that I’ve spent a bit of time trying to get my wines to last whilst I drink them. Simplest solution would probably be to drink more I’d also add that it tends to be more of a problem with lower priced/quality wines!
