i know most of my friends would scoff at the idea of not finishing a bottle of wine once opened, but sometimes when you’re home alone, cooking for just for yourself, it seems a tad indulgent (or bridget jones-eque!) to open a bottle and drink it in its entirety.
so, when i spotted a new kickstarter project by dutch product designers jaap huijgen & odin visser i instantly found myself nodding along at the concept. demivin is a beautiful carafe with smart functionality to easily divide a bottle of wine in half and preserve up to 6 weeks – neat, right? because when i find myself with a night in to treat myself to a home-cooked meal with wine, it’s very rare i’ll also be home the following night to finish the bottle.
the idea for demivin came after odin started a wine course to deep dive into the wonderful world of wine. excited about the topic, he explored the possibilities of preserving wine to enjoy it at its best quality and was surprised by the lack of effective and beautiful options ou there. he turned to product design partner jaap, who shares his passion about wine, and together they started to imagine how they could design a solution of their own. “18 months and many prototypes later, we are proud to present our demivin carafe,” they say. “we hope to reach all wine lovers around the world so wine is enjoyed in the best way possible.”
