Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is just two weeks away, marking the official start of the holiday season. That means family gatherings, dinner parties and get-togethers are sure to be filling up your calendar ... and your wine glass.
This year, the entrepreneurial duo behind one unique wine bottle stopper is encouraging safer sips this holiday season.
Mitch Strahan and Laura Bartlett, a mother-and-son team from Texas, are the designers of the Wine Condom, a wine bottle stopper designed to work just like the personal health care item. Each Wine Condom is made from food-grade latex and comes in a gold foil wrapper. The tuxedo black Wine Condoms roll over the stem of the wine bottle, sealing it completely and protecting against spills.
One of the more functional benefits of the Wine Condom design is that it fits flush with the rim of the wine bottle. Traditional corks and wine stoppers add between 0.5 and 1.5 inches to the wine bottle height, making it difficult to store the open bottle in the fridge.
