Wine Squirrel has been put through dozens of rigorous tests with both white and red wine in order to engineer a beautifully designed, effective sealing mechanism and decanter for the job.

Wine Squirrel was created for those who enjoy a glass of good wine with dinner but can’t justify drinking the entire bottle and risking a headache in the morning. The lead-free, crystal decanter has a patent-pending, sealing mechanism that seals out oxygen to prevent wine from being ruined. Wine Squirrel first hosted a campaign on Kickstarter with a goal of $30,000 and during its 30-day campaign, Wine Squirrel over-funded, raising a total of $112,285. Now, Wine Squirrel is hosting a campaign on Indiegogo’s InDemand platform to further establish funding.
Over six billion dollars of wine are wasted each year worldwide. This is because many people open a bottle of wine, only drink a couple of glasses and re-cork the bottle thinking the taste will stay. However, once wine is exposed to oxygen, a process called oxidation occurs, causing a loss in flavor. Wine Squirrel is an affordable and effective way to not only save wine from going bad, but save wine drinkers money by eliminating the need to toss out an opened bottle.
“Wine Squirrel has been put through dozens of rigorous tests with both white and red wine in order to engineer a beautifully designed, effective sealing mechanism and decanter for the job,” said Wine Squirrel Co-founder Tony Gonsalves. “We have created the ideal solution and are happy to see, through our Kickstarter campaign, that people are genuinely enthusiastic about our product.”
The sealing mechanism that makes Wine Squirrel so effective and unique is also extremely simple to use. First, pour an opened bottle of wine into the crystal decanter. Next, insert the seal into the decanter and push down until the seal touches the level of wine. To engage the seal, simply turn the knob at the top of the mechanism clockwise until it stops. The decanter can be placed upright or on its side without spilling a drop. When it comes time for another glass, turn the knob counterclockwise, remove the mechanism and pour.
Now that Wine Squirrel is live on Indiegogo’s InDemand platform, one Wine Squirrel decanter will be available for pre-order for $70. Two Wine Squirrel decanters can be pre-ordered for $130. To learn more about Wine Squirrel or to pre-order, visit bit.ly/WineSquirrelIndie.
