Transforming lesser wine into vintage with the ‘Sonic Decanter’

Introducing the Sonic Decanter that uses ultrasonic waves to speed up the ageing process. Within 20 minutes or less, the machine is claimed to soften tannins, develop flavour and release aromas that are usually only found in aged wines.

The device, which can be controlled via a smartphone app, can also be used to restore wines that have been open a few days to a drinkable state.
Is is the invention of Michael Coyne and Charles Leonhardt in the US, who are attempting to raise money to launch the product via the crowdfunding website Kickstarter. So far, the team have raised nearly met their $85,000 goal target.

The device has already won plaudits from wine experts. American wine store owner John Allen said: “I thought it was an impressive piece of work. It changes wine in ways that I hadn’t expected… Tthe treatment makes it more soft, more gentle, more drinkable.”

The Sonic Decanter is due to go into production next summer and will cost around £150.
