On this week’s Grape Encounters, meet Charn Rai, the inventor of a device that host David Wilson says is a “landmark innovation.” (Interview starts at 18:30 in the podcast.) This brand-new wine aeration product is a game-changer… just as the Coravin was a few years back. After putting it through its paces, David says, “It’s beautiful, mesmerizing, and destined to revolutionize conventional decanting in a matter of months.”

Charn shares the process of developing the V-Spin; a gorgeous decanter that sits on a simple stand. Inside the stand is some very innovative magnetic technology which enables the wine in the decanter to swirl silently—creating a vortex that exposes the wine to air in just a few minutes. The V-Spin does what otherwise could take hours… and you can adjust the speed and time to perfectly suit the wine varietal. Find out more at: https://vspin.us/

Also on the show is Bob Sweeney, co-creator along with Tim Jones, of The Boutique Wine Sampler Box, a California Central Coast entrepreneur who has come up with a new take on wine tasting. You’d think you would see this done all over the world, but frankly, it seems few have taken the time to pull the pieces together.

What Bob did was negotiate contracts with several of the top premium wine producers in the Paso Robles region of California. Six of Paso’s finest were repacked into 375ml bottles; three healthy pours in each bottle. The result is the ability to enjoy a true cross-section of what the region has to offer. Make no mistake, these are outstanding wines and David wanted to showcase this very special project to encourage other regions to show off their very best in the same way!
