Mother and son launch ‘wine condoms’

A mother and son duo have come up with a novel way to reseal a wine bottle – with a condom.

Wine CondomDescribed as “the ultimate protection for wine lovers”, the Wine Condom has been designed by Mitchell Strahan and his mother as a way of easily resealing a bottle of wine and no doubt sparking some interesting conversation.

Each disposable “condom”, developed by a rubber company specialising in food, is adaptable and can be used on any bottle.

Writing on their Kickstarter page Strahan said the invention sits flush with a wine bottle eliminating the “Pain-In-The-Ass-Leans-To-The-Side-Which-Never-Quite-Fits-In-The-Refrigerator-Syndrome” caused by regular bottle stops adding that they are both “convenient, disposable, and hilarious.”

The entrepreneurs have already raised $1,255 of their $7,500 target having set up the venture on Kickstarter in a bid to attract backers.

    Do you mean to say that some people never finish a bottle of wine in one go. A better suggestion would be to send your part used and any unopened bottles to me and I will finish off and recycle the bottles

  2. Old Wino says:

    Will this work on box wine?
    Also, does it help prevent the spread of volatile acidity?
