Skybar Taps your Wine Collection

Skybar Taps your Wine Collection

Nothing says, "partay!" like some chilled wine on tap. Ok, but seriously, this little gizmo is pretty nifty if you've got $400 to $1k to spend on sommelier inclinations.

The Skybar is a wine system that chills, pours and preserves your Chardonnays or Pinots. Pop a bottle in and it will suck out all the oxygen so your opened vino is preserved for up to 10 days. You can then choose from 9 pre-programmed temperature settings to ensure that your select vintage is sitting in the proper climate.

Then, similar to getting a Slurpee at the corner 7-Eleven (only kind of kidding), place your glass under the spigot, press a button, and a perfectly chilled wine pours out without letting any air back into the bottle. The system comes in two options -- a one bottle chiller for $400 and a three bottle version for $1,000. It's pricey, but for those serious about their wines, it may be a sound investment. Any oenophiles out there who've had experience with this or have any opinions on this kind of set-up?
