QikVin Pre-Sales Begin on QikVin.com and Indiegogo.com August 2017
Milwaukee, WI – July 19, 2017 –The QikVin Wine Preservation System has reinvented the common wine bottle. The invention, invented within a modern and dynamic winery begins by removing the bottom (punt) of a bottle and inserting instead a moving stainless steel piston which works in tandem with a one-way valve in the neck of the bottle. The many patent applications describe the piston which pushes the wine into your glass with simple gravity. Keeping the romance of the bottle, this Bordeaux-style design, removes all the air from the bottle leaving the wine fresh for days and weeks. The QikVin is dishwasher safe and is reusable. The Italian designer’s simple branding for the bottle includes a convenient scale which is ideal for tasting rooms, restaurants and home patrons. The design uses neither gas cartridges, pumps, needles, nor has extra parts. Best of all it pours like any other vintage wine.
Designed within the environment of a busy tasting room with some 55 nationally acclaimed wines the QikVin claims to freshness are being independently tested by Concordia University Wisconsin’s pharmacy school using Raman Spectrometry and NMR technologies giving credence to QikVin’s claims. Results will be independently published in 2017.
QikVin began pre-sales on December 7, 2016 and completed a successful Kickstarter campaign raising $17,144.

Comparing our product with the emerging market – we assert our QikVin will produce the best results in wine preservation. We preserve the taste of your wine from tank to table. The materials which make up the QikVin are an Eastman Tritan. This material is used in the best water bottles and it contains no BPA. Further, wines frequently come in contact with plastic coatings in transportation or in boxed wines. Also, and more importantly for wine enthusiasts, wine bottles are hot or cold coated with plastic as they are produced to give the bottle a longer self life in the recycling efforts of the winery. Our stainless steel piston is made of 304 steel and such steel comprise the steel tanks in which wines are ages and stored. We know that the taste is not affected in the least with the materials that make up this stellar product.
One wine enthusiast described the QikVin this way! “The QikVin is to wine lovers what microscopes are to science!” The inventors see the device in every home and as common as a corkscrew! Cheers, and “Bottoms Up” – Harald Tomesch!
