ON THE GO PROTECTION

In a bid to help consumers protect their wine after it is opened, mother-son duo Mitchell Strahan and Laura Bartlett will begin to bring their product – the wine condom – into New Zealand. What started out as cling film and rubber bands, the wine condom quickly moved from an idea to a solution. Just over a month old, the project began on Kickstarter and has now made it through production. It is a small, convenient and disposable condom that can be placed over the top of the bottle opening after it has been opened. It sits flush with the rim of the bottle, which is a bonus when trying to put it back in the fridge again. Each Wine Condom is made of 100 percent rubber and designed to be reusable.
