About this project
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.

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.
