I generally top off my bulk wine containers with CO2. However, I understand there is a better gas, a combination of three. Does anyone know the gases and the percentage?

Thanks

I've seen bottles of gas sold as "Wine Preserver." They look kind of like the cans of compressed air for cleaning electronics...

Generally, they're listed as containing CO2, Nitrogen, and Argon. I have no idea the percentages, nor where you would get Argon gas from, but CO2 and Nitrogen is a pretty common combination (aka "beer gas") for pushing draft beer.

Overall, my guess is that you are fine with just CO2, or if you happen to have a stout faucet and nitro set up, using beer gas.
