  1. This and $24 could have bought you Manhattan years ago. Amateur tasters drinking $6. Wines

    Please if you repaint a sweatshop wall workers productivity goes up temporarily in the belief their needs are being cared for. Tell people you are treating a cheap wine and suddenly it tastes like a first growth Bordeaux from a great vintage?

    Please send me your $24

    1. Jason,

      I am still trying to get my US $ 30 magnets to work. Now, you throw out some NEW "device."

      What am I ever going to do with you?


      1. I was given something that sounds very much like this almost 10 years ago by a Master of Wine who had developed it. I used it a few times but really couldn't say it did much of anything. I know it used some type of magnets and fit into the top of the bottle so the wine passed through it when you poured.

          Yes, there was the Clef du Vin from some years earlier, a similar product that also came with a suitcase of dubious claims.

          This promotion for this gizmo says it ages the wine by using acoustic waves and electromagnetic waves, a technology based on a machine called the "Agronifier" -- US trademark applied for but not granted -- owned by a Las Vegas company called Ferris Holdings.

          The gizmo is owned/marketed by Ken Lewis, founder and owner of Clean Path Resources, which you can research on your own and also read about using these links:

            Well, it wasn't Clef du Vin, and the name WineWizard sounds very familiar. I looked around for it this morning but couldn't find it. It was 'burgundy' in color, maybe 2.5 inches long and fit down into the top of the bottle like a stopper but with a spout.

            I met the guy at an organic wine trade event in LA in about '06. Same day I met Wilfred Wong, of BevMo, so I remember. Didn't think he was real before that.

        2. Let me guess. The electromagnetic waves and ultrasonics do absolutely nothing other than give the wine an hour to breathe.

            Don't forget the magnets, to align the ions...
