Many say necessity is the mother of invention, but frustration can be a strong source of motivation too—at least for one wine lover who decided to take matters into his own hands.
When David Koretz got home after a long day of work, he wanted to relax with a glass of wine. If he opened a bottle, though, that meant drinking all 750 milliliters, or pouring one glass and letting the rest oxidize. Neither seemed like a great option.
"Most nights, I don't want five glasses of wine," Koretz told CNBC in an interview. But he didn't want to dump $50 or $100 wine down the drain either. "I wanted to be able to hit a button when I got home and get the perfect glass of wine," he added.
There was no device on the market that could give him that experience, so Koretz decided to create it himself.
