About this project
Introducing the Optima Vino™ Wine Enhancing Collar
Throughout the ages, people have been inspired by wine as a symbol of joy, hospitality, and sociability; it just brings people together.
Today, the hot growth market for the wine industry is in the value priced arena. However, value priced wines are generally young wines absent the time they need to naturally age. Thus once uncorked typically require a longer wait time for the wine to begin “opening up” and release its intended aromas and flavors before pouring a glass.
Use the Optima Vino wine collar and instantly enjoy enhanced flavors, less astringency, smoother finish and more balanced taste.
How it Works
Based on successfully applying the scientific principles of rare-earth magnet technology, the Optima Vino wine collar is a beautifully crafted combination of art and science that is visually appealing and simple to use.
Simply slide the Optima Vino wine collar over the bottle neck. As you pour, the wine moves gently through the high powered magnetic field imbedded inside the collar employing its ability to release and open up the unique aromas, flavors and composition of all types of wine.
Using rare-earth magnets to treat fluids is not a new idea and the technology has been applied successfully in many industries. It is generally thought that passing a conductive fluid through a properly designed magnetic field has an effect on the polar molecules in the fluid. We simply applied the core principles and discovered the effect on wine is virtually instantaneous.
Our Progress to DateWe have completed product development, focus group testing and have our Patent Pending status; all CAD design work has also been finalized resulting in our working prototype as seen in the picture and video.
To date we have entirely self-funded the development of the Optima Vino wine collar from prototypes to patent filing and now we are on the home stretch asking the Kickstarter community to help us cross the finish line.

What are we using the money for?Reaching our financial goal will give us the ability to purchase the injection molding die required to produce the collar. The mold is hand-crafted from steel to the exacting specifications of the CAD design files. Once we have the mold in hand we are ready to manufacture.
Where will Optima Vino be made and assembled?The Optima Vino collar will be manufactured and assembled in the USA.
Suggested Retail Pricing
The Optima Vino wine collar will have a suggested retail price of $49.95 so pledging now is a great opportunity to save money. Best of all, our product is guaranteed to last a lifetime!

The ability of a wine to age is influenced by many factors including grape variety, vintage, viticultural practices, wine region and winemaking style. Our research has shown that the OV collar works best on wines that can improve with aging, typical of red wines. Please feel free to try it on your favorite white wines and let us know your results.
In the unlikely event the Optima Vino wine collar fails to work, we offer a lifetime guarantee and will replace it with a new Optima Vino wine collar free of charge.

If we meet our Kickstarter goal early on we will order the injection mold immediately since it takes approximately six weeks to build. Once built, the manufacturing process is simply a matter of days and your order will be shipped within a few weeks of our Kickstarter closing date.
We will be using the US post office for domestic, Canadian and International shipments.
