Enjoy wine at its best in the comfort of your own home with D-Vine, a state of the art machine and the latest technology in wine tasting and drinking. Through a compact passage that spans almost 2 km, D-Vine aerates your wine and chills it to the optimum temperatures, amplifying the taste and flavour of the wine, all within one minute. D-Vine basically functions like a coffee machine, in that you insert specific quantities of wine (in what the company calls “flacons”), and out comes the wine, ready to drink. The flacons have a chip that lets the machine know the type of wine it contains and the best conditions for it to be enjoyed in. Currently offering 22 types of wine (with more to be released this year), pamper and impress your mother this May with this stellar piece of technology and some exquisitely aerated wine!
