Kuvée Bottle

Kuvée Smart Wine Bottle’s concept is creative and clever, and the device is polished. The wine also oxidizes more slowly.


The central mechanic of the Kuvée Bottle has a simple underlying concept: use valves to block air from entering the bottle as you pour a glass of wine. That way, oxidation doesn’t set the bottle’s quality on a slow path toward spoiled wine. Instead, the bottle should last for weeks.

Kuvée isn’t the first developer to combat oxidation. For less than 10 bucks, you can easily get a canister of argon or another inert gas. Spraying one of these into a bottle before re-corking it will slow the oxidation process, lending the wine a few more days of freshness. On the other hand, you can buy a device like a Coravin for $350. The Coravin uses a hollow needle to pump argon through the cork, pressurizing the bottle of wine. Then you can pour the wine out through the needle. And when you’re done, the naturally elastic cork reseals.
