Who - Scott Tavenner.
What- Savino is an easy-to-use, a three piece wine preservation system that allows users to enjoy their favorite wine days after they originally opened it. Both the sealing top, which prevents spills, and carafe are made of high-grade flint glass. The heart of the system, an oxygen limiting float, is made of Eastman Tritan™ copolyester and food-grade silicon. The float is what creates a barrier between the oxygen and wine, and automatically adjusts to different amounts of wine. The float works with the carafe as the user moves from pouring to storing.
The difference between Savino and other wine preservation systems available today is you introduce the wine to a new environment, instead of controlling the environment the wine is in. Not only does it effectively preserve the original characteristics of the wine, but it is contained in a carafe that is effective, elegant and easy-to-use.
Savino entered the market in 2013.
Needs- Scott Tavenner needed a food-safe material that was BPA-free, very tough, resistant to discoloration, glasslike clarity, dishwasher durability and most importantly the ability not to impart any taste into the wine. He was also looking for a way to store different amounts of wine with each use.
Material- Eastman Tritan copolyester, With its glass-like clarity, minus the weight, shatter-risk, and slick-wet handling that comes with traditional glass products in the kitchen, Eastman Tritan™ copolyester is the perfect material for the Savino
Tritan is a new-generation clear plastic with excellent toughness and impact resistance. Unlike some plastics, Tritan is made without bisphenol-A (BPA) and it retains clarity after repeated dishwasher washing cycles, without hazing or cracking
What’s Next- Savino launched a Kickstarter in July 2015 for their second product, The Shaker33. “Every cocktail shaker on the market seems to leak, get stuck together, is too hard to pour or is just too messy so we decided to make our own, and it is the best cocktail shaker I have ever used.” Their design continues to use BPA-free plastic that is dishwasher safe!
