Wine Squirrel: The Decanter That Preserves Wine for Weeks

$112,285

Do you enjoy a glass of smooth red or white wine after a long day? You’re not alone. A glass of wine with dinner or before bed has been proven to provide the body with many health benefits. 

However, you can't just have a glass or two without worrying about wasting the rest of the bottle. 

That is why we created Wine Squirrel- a decanter that preserves a glass, or an entire bottle of wine, for weeks at a time- without losing its flavor!

In the Media

 

The key to the effectiveness of Wine Squirrel is the unique sealing mechanism. This mechanism provides an airtight seal whether you are preserving one glass or most of the bottle. 

The seal is so effective that you can even store the decanter horizontally or flip it upside down without spilling a drop! 

We have created an affordable and effective way to avoid oxygen spoiling your wine. With Wine Squirrel, you can have a glass or two of wine and preserve the rest of the bottle for weeks. 

We have put Wine Squirrel through rigorous testing using different types of red and white wine. What we found was that this is the only solution that is both effective and affordable. 

Wine Squirrel keeps your wine tasting great, even weeks later. 

Wine Squirrel is the perfect accessory for the nights you want to have just one glass of wine with dinner or to taste-test multiple wines. With Wine Squirrel, you no longer have to feel like you need to finish the entire bottle to prevent wasting perfectly good wine.

The patent-pending Wine Squirrel decanter provides an effective oxygen barrier and preserves your wine. Only Wine Squirrel has all these great features.

  • Wine Squirrel is easy to use. 
  • Wine Squirrel will quickly pay for itself. Think about how much wine you can avoid wasting. 
  • The Wine Squirrel decanter is elegantly designed and made from high-quality, lead-free crystal to look beautiful while it works. 
  • Wine Squirrel would make a perfect gift for any wine lover. 
  • Wine Squirrel requires no consumables to be replaced.
  • Wine Squirrel can be conveniently stored in your wine fridge or a standard fridge door, vertically or horizontally. 
  • When your partner or guest likes white wine but you prefer red. 
  • When you want to compare two different wines to see which pairs best with your meal 
  • When you have finished a bottle of wine and would like just one more glass. 
  • When you only want to have a glass or two of wine but don’t want to waste the rest of the bottle by putting it into the fridge. 
  • If you want to take your favorite bottle of opened wine with you to a party, friend’s house or picnic. 

 Meet the Team

Wine Squirrel is a product of Forever Products LLC, which is a family company founded by Tony Gonsalves and his brother Maurice. Tony, a physicist based in Berkeley California, created the Wine Squirrel concept and developed it in conjunction with Clive Solari from the Sydney-based industrial design firm D3 Design. Maurice is an attorney and wine lover who gave up his job a year ago to focus on making Wine Squirrel a reality. 

Risks and challenges

Wine Squirrel decanter has been thoroughly tested for over a year with different types of wine. We have lined up manufacturing and fulfillment partners.

Our manufacturing partners have not identified any issues that are likely to arise in the process of manufacturing final production versions of the Wine Squirrel decanter. Our team's success in creating this innovative new product gives us confidence in our ability to resolve any issues that do arise and to meet our promised delivery date of November 2016. However, we recognize that any project can encounter unexpected challenges. We promise to be fully transparent and to provide regular updates to Kickstarter backers. Thank you for your support in bringing this exciting new product to life!
