George Lee, founder of Le Mouton Noir and Co. — a New
York company specializing in quirky, sleek and ingenious
household products (sort of like a streamlined Sharper

"How old is this wine?" His smart solution: a
wine stopper with a twistable date ring to quickly and
simply display the day and month a particular wine
bottle was opened. Featuring food-grade stainless steel
and silicone rubber rings, the sturdy A Date with Wine
stopper rests firmly in the bottle spout to ensure that
wine stays fresh (and air stays out). But it’s also
easy to grip and remove from the bottle.
best part, of course, is that it takes the guesswork out
of enjoying leftover wine. Because no one wants to waste
wine. This well-designed corking device is a great
little gift for any oenophile.
