The Wine Condom


One night a woman named Laura Bartlett walked home from a neighborhood dinner party with half-empty bottle of wine in hand. With the cork lost, she resorted to plastic wrap and a rubber band to keep the wine secure. Her son, Mitchell Strahan, saw his mom’s “redneck” wine bottle closure as a business opportunity waiting to happen, and the Wine Condom was born. The mother and son invention has since gone from Kickstarter to worldwide demand among wine lovers everywhere! The Food Channel’s Joy Robertson Skyped the mother-son Texas duo about the idea, the novelty, and plans for the future.
