Wine condoms now a million dollar business

You have to applaud their ingenuity. In August, we reported than an entrepreneurial mother and son duo are laughing all the way to the bank, as their quirky ‘wine condom’ business has amassed over a million dollars in sales.

Founded in 2014 off the back of a successful Kickstarter campaign by entrepreneur Mitch Strahan and his 51-year-old mother Laura Bartlett, the pair describe their novel product as “the ultimate protection for wine lovers”.

Aimed at drinkers looking to reseal their wine, each disposable latex “condom”, developed by a rubber company specialising in food, can be used on any bottle.

Sold in $15 packs of six, the portable stoppers provide “on-the-go protection”, and, unlike actual condoms, can be used more than once.
