Fourteen promising drinks inventions unveiled in 2018

Fully automated Coravin

One of the industry’s hottest gadgets, Coravin is launching its new, fully automated version this year, arriving in the US in September and the UK in October.

Among its features, it has the option to pour a glass (150ml-175ml) or a taste (30-50ml) of wine, with the ability to set the volumes via an app.

Demonstrating how it worked, Coravin founder Greg Lambrecht showed db earlier this year that the pour can be stopped at any time, even if the full volume selected hasn’t been poured out. The needle can then be pulled straight out of the bottle without the need to remove a clamp.

A new app, which Lambrecht admits has taken more time to develop than the actual Coravin itself, will be released in conjunction with the Model Eleven, although you don’t require the latest Coravin to be able to use it.

Due to retail for US$999, the gadget is certainly not suitable for all budgets. Lambrecht, however, told db that he was aiming to get the Coravin cheaper and take this automated version [Model Eleven] down to the other models of Coravin.
