As with Nespresso coffee machines that have capsules making a single cup of coffee, you can now enjoy wine one glass at a time. Christened D-Vine, the machine was recently unveiled at the world’s largest Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas by French start-up, 10-Vins.
Using 10-centilitre (3.5-ounce) capsules D-Vine pours a single glass of wine with the correct aeration and temperature. The machine cools or warms the wine as required by reading a microchip on the wine capsule. The Nantes-based company has already sold the first 300 machines in France with several varieties of Burgundy and Bordeaux wines. At present, the machine has 30 French wines with plans to offer American vintages for the US launch. Each capsule retails for between two and 16 euros ($2.20 to $17.60 or roughly Rs. 150 to Rs. 1,180) and the machine itself costs 499 euros ($550 or roughly Rs. 36, 790).
With the single-pour D-Vine, you can now serve several different varieties to different guests without opening multiple bottles. According to oenologist Beatrice Domine, who is collaborating with the group, “The idea here is to bring people to quality wine in a fun way.”
