Interview with Tom Lutz, Founder & Creator of Repour Wine Savor, one of the leading new inventions in wine preservation technology.
In this episode, Robert Vernick and Peter Yeung interview Tom Lutz, Founder & Creator of Repour Wine Savor, one of the leading new inventions in wine preservation technology. We discuss the technology, how people have learned about it, the differences between Coravin and Repour, and what the future holds.
Other topics covered in this episode include:
Tom is a chemist by trade (he worked in biodiesel and aquarium products)
Repour was invented when he had a newborn son and ended up pouring half bottles of wine down the drain
The capacity of the stopper
Uses recyclable materials. However, many municipal grids have 3”x3” grids that filter out small objects; for large customers, they do take back repours to recycle
Coravin vs. Repour - both work; Coravin is better for tasting and cellaring wine; Repour is for enjoying wine like you usually would and saving it
Duration of effectiveness - weeks or months; Repour has tested out to 6-7 months
The future - potentially replaceable inserts, sparkling wine, and the possibly showing how much oxygen absorbing capacity is left
