The Original Vacu Vin Wine Saver was the first of many patented Vacu Vin inventions and the first of its kind on the market. Vacu Vin’ has revolutionized the wine preservation process. It is now used in over 35 million households and more than 80 countries throughout the world.
The Vacu Vin Wine Saver extracts the air from an opened wine bottle and re-seals it using a rubber stopper. The airtight vacuum inhibits the oxidation process that is responsible for the deterioration of wine. The vacuum is created by placing a stopper into the neck of the opened bottle and pumping it until you hear the patented "click". The "click indicates" when a sufficient airtight environment has been established. Simply pull stopper to break seal and remove, pour your favorite wine when ready to enjoy, reinsert stopper and remove air to seal again. Reusable stoppers last for years.
Hand wash only. Not suitable for sparkling wines.

My wife doesn't have to chug wine anymore to avoid waste.
My wife loves red wine. I don't. We're also poor. This means that when we open a bottle, she's had to do one of two things.
1) Drink it all at once. This leaves my 90lb wife in a pile on the bathroom floor. No fun.
2) Leave it open. The cheap stuff we buy goes bad pretty darn fast. She either drinks the stale wine, or makes sangria.
This was a nice cheap vacuum that worked well and held a seal on a variety of sized bottles. My wife can enjoy a glass a day all week and not feel guilty about it going bad. I won't say that it's saved my marriage or anything like that, but it's nice little addition to our kitchen.

Works very well but directions are not useful. I went to utube to find a video demo which was helpful. Tips include wet the rubber stopper first before inserting in bottle. Then set the pump on top of the stopper and start pumping. It can take 10-15 pumps to get to the clicking sound. The more wine left in the bottle the less pumps.

Combine with inert gas to preserve wine for weeks
I loved my first Vacu Vin, so when the pump broke after 15 years, I bought this replacement. My first one occasionally got difficult to pump, so I would spread on a little cooking oil for lubrication. I still have most of the original stoppers. They haven't changed at all, but the pump is improved.
This product creates a partial vacuum, so it removes some of the oxygen but not all. A competing product, Private Preserve Wine Preservation Spray, also removes some oxygen by displacing much of the air with inert gases (essentially oxygen-free air). I am a chemist, I have worked with oxygen-sensitive compounds all my life, and I realized that combining both of these methods would be doubly effective. Just spritz in some gas, quickly pop on the stopper, and pump it down. It typically takes me a week or more to go through a bottle of wine, and I can't ever remember any spoilage.
I store the opened bottle on its side in the wine fridge, and the vacuum holds in the stopper to keep it from leaking. But a wine with even a hint of effervescence can outgas enough carbon dioxide to push out the stopper a bit, causing the wine to leak out, so store that bottle upright.
