World's First Smart Wine Bottle Launched (WTF???)

From thedrinksbusiness.com: The likes of Bonny Doon and Schug have teamed up with the world’s first smart wine bottle, Kuvée, which promises to keep wine fresh for 30 days.

The gadget is formed of a WiFi-connected Kuvée bottle and a selection of wines from the likes of Bonny Doon, Schug, B.R. Cohn and Pine Ridge.

Housed in metallic sheaths, wines in the Kuvée collection are bottled the same way as standard 75cl glass bottles and cost between US$15-50.

To use the system, you simply have to insert one of the wines into the black Kuvée bottle and pour. According to its makers, Kuvée’s patented valve system prevents oxygen from entering the wine, keeping it fresh for up to 30 days after opening. (Article continues at length.)

Keeps it for 30 days. That’s why I am not a wine snob. Wine never lasts that long at my house.

Bloody Hell. If it’s not 30 hours or 30 minutes, it’s not for me.
