Is there a Toronto source for Private Reserve Wine Preserver?

A couple of years ago, a friend bought us a bottle of Private Reserve Wine Preserver, a mix of carbon dioxide, nitrogen and argon to keep wine fresh in opened bottles. We've run out, so we went to the LCBO to get some more. But they told us that the LCBO doesn't sell it anymore.

Does anyone have any idea where one can buy this stuff in the Toronto area?

  1. I would call the Wine Establishment on Esplinade

    I also have it in my head that they sell it at The Cooks Place on the Danforth but call first, my memory sometimes fails

    1. Does this work better than using a vacuum sealer with vacuum seal bottle caps?

        I couldn't tell you if the spray is better. That is something for Wine Drinkers to answer. Speaking solely as a lazy person who doesn't want any more gadgets to store or fuss with, the spray is _easier_ to use. Besides, all I ever do with leftover wine is cook with it. I seek nothing but the convenience. :-)

          I guess for me - either would be convenient since I always have my unit out just on the edge of my counter space since I use it often for opening and resealing my coffee beans in a vacuum seal container..... So all I have to do is pop the stopper in, plug the hose in and press a button.
