Cut Loose The Corkscrew with Coravin

The idea for Coravin began as a pet project during Greg’s medical career. Coravin is his first consumer product, a departure from the field of medical device innovation.

As an avid wine enthusiast, Greg developed Coravin as a convenient way to enjoy his favorite wine without worrying about the deterioration of the wine left in the bottle for too long. “I remember holding this chemotherapy needle in my left hand and a bottle in my right hand thinking, there’s got to be a way I can get the wine I want out of this bottle with this needle,” states Greg. Relying on his background in medical device technology, Greg began experimentation on the wine extraction process.
