The Wine Condom – a perfect solution

Today I found the perfect solution to several problems simultaneously. Best of all, unlike my usual perfect solutions, this one is affordable.

Meet the Wine Condom.

Cheekily named after its inspiration, it comes in a box of 10 with suitable instructions, for those of us unfamiliar with condom usage.

It is as you’d imagine a size extra-small, unlubricated condom. Once unrolled over the top of an open bottle it seals drip free. (As all good condoms must do.)

This allows for two things, both important in the endless fight for a foodie’s fridge space. Firstly you can store you bottle on the side without worrying your Petrus will be decanted overnight on to your lettuce. Secondly, should you wish to store it upright there is no height added to the bottle as there is with most stoppers including a cork. Also, although there is air in the bottle this is also an air tight seal which should slow oxygenation slightly.

I’d guess they’re reusable but at $10 for 10 I doubt if I’ll worry about that too much. Great product at a great price. A must for every wine drinker!
