GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION

Zzysh is the only product concept in the world which combines the technology of controlled atmosphere packaging with a 100% sealing closure system for wine and champagne/sparkling wine. Your wine will be protected very effectively from oxidation and changes in aroma, color and taste after opening.
Your champagne/sparkling wine stays carbonated and still fizzes even weeks after first opening it.
So, you can decide how many bottles you want to open at the same time, and whether you want to drink them right away or enjoy them over the course of a few days.

By combining a specially developed protective atmosphere, the zzysh hand piece and bottle cap will protect your champagne/sparkling wine very effectively from oxidation and changes in aroma, color and taste after opening. In addition, your champagne/sparkling wine stays carbonated and still fizzes even weeks after first opening it.

In addition to a wide-ranging test by independent testers, who rated the function and benefits of zzysh very positively for the most part, zzysh was tested by several sommeliers worldwide. Wine and champagne bottles were re-closed with zzysh after opening and were flown around the world to allow the same bottles to be tasted by different, recognized sommeliers. The extremely positive feedback and test results indicate how effective zzysh is.

Because wine and champagne/sparkling wine are two very different products, they must also be preserved differently.
With wine, this means highly effective protection from oxidation and from changes in aroma, color and taste. With champagne/sparkling wine, there is also the creation of pressure, which keeps the carbonation from disappearing.

PRODUCT USE

Check the wine or champagne bottle for damage such as cracked, chipped or crushed glass or inclusions. Don’t use the system if the bottle is damaged. This could damage the zzysh cap, or the bottle could burst due to the pressure created for champagne/sparkling wine.

You can preserve up to eight opened bottles of wine with one zzysh cartridge. The life expectancy of the cartridge also depends on how long zzysh is used on each bottle.

You can preserve up to 4 opened bottles of champagne with one zzysh cartridge. The life expectancy of the cartridge also depends on how long you put the bottle under pressure and how long zzysh is used.

For wine, an application time of 3-5 seconds is recommended for maximum protection.
It must be noted here that no pressure is created in the bottle during the application of zzysh wine. In this application, the air is replaced by the protective atmosphere.

For champagne/sparkling wine, an application time of 3-5 seconds is recommended for maximum protection.
As soon as enough pressure is created in the bottle by the protective atmosphere, it will escape through the little opening in the side of the hand piece. You will hear a quiet “zzyshing.”

Using the wrong cartridge is completely harmless. However, the protective effect of zzysh is not provided with the use of the wrong cartridge, and your wine can undergo sensory changes. By immediately removing the cap and sealing it again with the correct cartridge, it is possible to produce the protective effect, depending on the reaction of the wine.

By immediately removing the cap and sealing it again with the correct cartridge, it is possible to produce the protective effect, depending on the reaction of the champagne/sparkling wine.

Basically, there is no limit. You can open your wine or champagne/sparkling wine as often as you like, enjoy a glass, and keep it completely fresh with zzysh.

The bottles should only be stored upright and should be refrigerated at around 6°C.

Wine has no expiration date, in general. However, the type of wine, the age, the initial quality, and how long the bottle was open before using zzysh play important roles. Because not every wine reacts to atmospheric oxygen at the same speed and thus undergoes sensory changes. Zzysh therefore does not assume any liability for undrinkable wine after using zzysh. With good initial quality and proper operation of zzysh, an unaltered taste is possible for several weeks.

Champagne/sparkling wine has no expiration date, in general. However, the type of champagne, the age, the initial quality, and how long the bottle was open before using zzysh play important roles. Because not every champagne/sparkling wine goes flat at the same rate or reacts to atmospheric oxygen at the same speed, and thus undergoes sensory changes. Zzysh therefore does not assume any liability for undrinkable champagne/sparkling wine after using zzysh. With good initial quality and proper operation of zzysh, an unaltered taste is possible for several weeks.

The zzysh wine cartridge contains 100% pure argon, which is also found in the air we breathe. Argon is an odor-neutral noble gas that protects your wine from oxidation and changes in aroma, color and taste very effectively after opening.

The zzysh champagne cartridge contains a mixture of 70% argon and 30% carbon dioxide. Both gases are found in the air we breathe and are extracted from the air. Argon is an odor-neutral noble gas that protects your champagne/sparkling wine from oxidation and changes in aroma, color and taste very effectively after opening. The portion of carbon dioxide also keeps your champagne/sparkling wine from going flat.

The zzysh cartridges are under pressure and should be stored at room temperature in a well-ventilated place. The cartridges should not be exposed to temperatures over 50°C or direct sunlight. This could cause the cartridges to explode.

The cartridges are made of 100% recyclable steel and can be recycled safely in the scrap metal bin. Do not discard cartridges that have not been activated with the zzysh hand piece.

No. Only use official zzysh cartridges with the zzysh system. The zzysh cartridges have been specially designed for the zzysh system. The use of non-zzysh cartridges voids the warranty for your zzysh system and can lead to personal injury, among other things. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that your wine, champagne or sparkling wine will be kept completely fresh.

CARE AND CLEANING

We recommend that you clean the zzysh cap after each use. Clean it under running cold or warm (not hot) water and dry it with a soft cloth. Zzysh products are not dishwasher-safe.

No. Zzysh products are not dishwasher-safe. Please follow the care and cleaning instructions.

Clean the hand piece with a soft, damp cloth. Clean the cap under running cold or warm (not hot) water and dry it with a soft cloth.

Store your zzysh products at room temperature in a dry place. Protect them from sharp and pointed objects.

TRAVEL AND TRANSPORT

The zzysh system can be carried on board an airplane safely. However, without the cartridge in the hand piece or spare cartridges. These are considered pressurized containers and are not approved by the aviation security authority. But you can order zzysh cartridges and have them shipped to your destination.

By completing special training, zzysh ensures that the products are properly labelled and all shipping regulations are followed. This ensures safe shipping worldwide.

RECOMMENDED SOLUTIONS FOR PROBLEMS

Since wine bottles are not a standard size, the cap may be difficult to put into the bottle or may get stuck when removing it. Rock the cap back and forth gently to insert or remove it. Do not twist the cap. This could damage it. Don’t use the cap if it is extremely difficult to insert it into the bottle even by gently rocking it back and forth. This can damage the cap.

Champagne bottles are a standard size and are thus uniform. Despite this, there may be bottles that deviate from the standard and the cap may not fit. This happens most often with sparkling wine and Prosecco bottles. Don’t use zzysh if the cap can’t be inserted properly into the bottle neck and the clamps don’t latch properly. In this case, the pressure created in the bottle can cause the cap to shoot out by itself. This can cause injuries.

Make sure that the cartridge is broached and is screwed into the hand piece as tightly as possible.
If the protective atmosphere still doesn’t flow out of the hand piece, make sure that the cartridge isn’t empty. To do this, unscrew the cartridge from the hand piece slowly. If very little or no atmosphere escapes, the cartridge is empty and needs to be replaced. If the problem persists despite the presence of a new, full cartridge, please contact the zzysh customer service team at hello@zzysh.me or at +41 26 670 50 81.

Make sure that you screw in the cartridge quickly and as tightly as possible. This is the only way to create a tight connection between the cartridge and the hand piece. If the problem persists, please contact the zzysh customer service team at hello@zzysh.me or on +41 26 670 50 81.

With bottles that are almost full, the circulation of the protective atmosphere inside the bottle may cause spray to escape from the overpressure valve of the wine cap. Clean the cap with a soft, damp cloth. When reapplying the cap, please make sure that there is a minimum distance of about 3 cm between the wine surface and the lowest end of the wine cap. Put your bottle upright in the refrigerator after applying zzysh. In the horizontal position, wine may leak out through the overpressure valve of the wine cap.

SAFETY INFORMATION

Check the wine or champagne bottle for damage, such as cracked, chipped or crushed glass or inclusions. Don’t use the system if the bottle is damaged. This could damage the zzysh cap, or the bottle could burst due to the pressure created for champagne/sparkling wine.

Do NOT use zzysh on bottles that have damage or defects such as cracked, chipped or crushed glass or inclusions. These could damage the zzysh cap, or the bottle could burst due to the pressure created for champagne/sparkling wine and cause serious injuries.

The zzysh cartridges are under high pressure. The use of non-zzysh cartridges can lead to personal injuries. Only activate your zzysh cartridges with the zzysh hand piece.

Does the pressure in the champagne bottle pose any risks while using zzysh?
