Well, just when we thought it wasn't possible for 2016—the year that already graciously gifted us with the hot glue gun for cheese—to get any better, along comes the D-Vine wine machine.
The D-Vine, basically a Keurig machine for little flasks of wine, is the perfect companion to the red-nosed "connoisseur" in your life. Looks like somebody's guiding the sleigh tonight.
Pioneered by French wine maestros 10-Vins, the D-Vine serves and aerates wine at temperatures pre-determined to be perfect for the grade of grape. After four years of work, 10-Vins claims that the $1,257 machine serves up the perfect glass of wine every single time—and after a half-dozen sample servings, everyone else jovially agrees!
While the $1,200 price is—ironically—hard cheese to swallow, with flacons (the machine's version of Keurig K-cups) starting as low as $6, it might just pay for itself in a quality-of-glass to quantity-per-flacon ratio. But you'd better drink a lot of wine just to be sure.
Sadly the D-Vine is not available stateside yet, but it recently launched in Singapore, which is also a rough description of what everyone is doing there right now. But we shiraz heck hope it launches in the US soon. Dionysus, have mercy!
