Wine lovers everywhere struggle with one thing when popping open a bottle and doing that first pour. Susana Victoria Perez (@susana_vp) has more
Unless you’re a sommelier, pouring wine can be a bit of a risky proposition. Will you achieve the perfect twist so it doesn’t stream down the side of the bottle, or will you end up getting red wine all over the table?
Don’t worry, you’re not the problem—the bottle is. A Brandeis University scientist has created a better wine bottle that never drips, as Gizmodo reports.
For three years, Daniel Perlman, the biophysicist behind inventions like coffee flour, has been studying how wine pours out of a bottle. In other words, he’s been watching a lot of slo-mo videos of people pouring vino. He wanted to create a beautiful utopia devoid of wine spills, but without creating an extra device people had to attach to their bottles. So he reinvented the wine bottle.
