What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Wine, like life, is meant to be enjoyed. We started Vacanti Wine Glasses to enhance your appreciation of the beautiful subtleties of wine. With our premium, hand-crafted Spirale design, you are able to enjoy your wine like never before. Its patented spiral at the bottom of the glass captures the sediment in wine, which reveals its richness while ensuring a smoother finish. Savor and enjoy every last sip.

 

Select your favorite wine, uncork and pour into your Spirale glass.

 

Enjoy your wine as sediment settles into the hand-blown Spirale design. That’s it!

 

 

Appreciate the unique properties of your wine, enjoy the smooth texture, and savor every sip without the worry of bitter sediment.

 

 

                   

 

During testing, we sent over 600 glasses to people for testing and feedback. Here are just a few that love Spirale glasses!

  

 

 

 

Wine glasses today are built to hold wine, but they’re not built to enhance your experience of the wine. That’s why we designed our patented corkscrew system. As sediment settles to the bottom of the bowl, the spiral in the stem separates the sediment from the wine. This hand-blown feature keeps the sediment at bay, even down to the last drop.

 

The last thing you want is to have your glass of wine ruined by sediment. With Spirale, enjoy your favorite wine without the concern of sediment. Trap the sediment and eliminate the possibility of a horrible, bitter taste.

 

Part of the experience of enjoying wine is the presentation. Our elegant, hand-blown design is the perfect fusion of form and function. Enjoy a glass of wine on the porch after a long day, or set your table with Spirale glasses for an elegant dinner party - they’re sure to look beautiful anywhere!

 

Don’t think your wine has sediment? Some bottles of wine may surprise you. With Spirale wine glasses, there is no need to plan ahead to separate sediment from your wine through decanting or filtering. Be spontaneous! Simply open, pour and enjoy. Our glasses have you covered.

 

 An added bonus? Spirale may be unique, but the clean up isn’t. Not only can these glasses be easily hand washed, but Spirale glasses are dishwasher safe too!

 

  

 

     

 

  

  

We sent over 600 sample glasses to retailers, wine experts, wineries, restaurants, and target consumers all around the world to gather their input to perfect our design. We’ve had hundreds of experts use and clean Spirale to great success. Here’s what they say...

We're Margarita and Patrick Vacanti, wine lovers on a mission to enhance the experience of wine. We don't want to strain or filter. We just want to pour and enjoy.

The idea for Spirale originated with a bottle of delicious red wine. We enjoyed every sip until the last one was tainted by a bitter flow of sediment. Inspired by how the shape of a corkscrew grips a cork, we embedded a spiral at the bottom of our glass to "grip" the sediment. After five years of industry testing and consumer feedback, Spirale is ready for the world to enjoy.

Risks and challenges

We have been developing the Spirale wine glass since January of 2012. We have spent thousands of hours and dollars doing research, design, development, prototyping, testing, shipping samples, collecting industry and consumer feedback, and perfecting the design to bring you the Spirale you see today. We have all the confidence in the world that Spirale will work, clean properly and revolutionize your wine drinking experience.

We have chosen a proven manufacturer and quality assurance and fulfillment partners that are experienced and poised to assist us in bringing you the best product imaginable. Their experience and methods will ensure the highest quality control, trusted production and safe and speedy delivery.

Natural, hand-blown variations add to the beauty of each handmade Spirale glass. As each bottle of wine is unique, so are the subtleties of each Spirale glass. Our quality controls will ensure narrow variations from the approved design.

While we are confident that we will meet our stated timeline, there are always unexpected situations when bringing a new product to market. Those may result in production delays, thereby causing us to delay our timeline. We will provide timely updates throughout the production and shipping process and will update the FAQs, as necessary.

Thank you for supporting us and for joining our family! Salute!
