BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Coravin, Inc. today announced the United States launch of the new Coravin Model Two, elevating its best-in-class wine system to the next level with enhanced performance features and a streamlined, user-friendly design.
“The announcement of the Coravin Model Two is a momentous milestone for Coravin as we make large strides towards revolutionizing the wine industry,” said Frederic Levy, president and CEO of Coravin, Inc. “Over the last two years, wine lovers around the world have accessed millions of bottles with their Coravin Systems, resulting in a big shift to the way they drink, taste and enjoy wine. Over the past two years we have learned a lot about how people use the Coravin System, and are confident that the new design will make accessing bottles of wine easier than ever.”
In the development phase of the Model Two, the Coravin team traveled the globe to meet with home users, sommeliers and wine makers, observing people use the Coravin System to better understand where enhancements could be made. As a result, the following improvements were identified and are manifested in the Coravin Model Two:
- A streamlined, modern design with brushed metal accents in dark graphite
