There have been filters for Air, Water, Vehicles and what not. With the invention of Ullo now you have a filter for your wine as well. Yes, you heard that right, a filter just for all you wine lovers out there. Ullo is a wine purifier that removes sulfites from wine, thus making sure that the wine restores its original taste. Ullo was developed mainly for those of them who are health conscious and for people who prefer their wines to be chemical free.
James Kornacki came up with the idea of Ullo and he believes that there are many people out there who are allergic to sulfites just like him and hence he came up with the Selective Sulfite Capture™ which would help in removing the chemicals from the wine. Ullo is based in the United States of America and was founded in July 2016.
James Kornacki had the following to say. “Üllo is giving wine lovers the option to filter sulfites from wine. Sulfites are an artificial preservative added to wine to keep it protected against oxidation and bacterial spoilage—an absolute necessity in winemaking. However, like all preservatives, sulfites are toxic. Since their role as a preservative is over once you open a bottle of wine, there’s no reason you should have to drink them at all. Sulfites also have bitter taste that tends to mask the natural flavors and aromas of wine. We teamed up with MNML to design a simple yet elegant product that celebrates the rituals of drinking wine. Üllo’s design features a patent pending adjustable wine aerator that mimics the way wine is naturally aerated in the glass, through swirling. We also designed a custom carafe and decanter to further elevate the experience of drinking wine with Üllo.”
Ullo has such do not have any competitors because Ullo is the only one right now who is working on the concept of removing sulfites from wines. Ullo is competing with the idea that chemicals are regularly okay to ingest. Üllo uses a patent-pending polymer to selectively remove sulfites, while allowing compounds in wine to flow through unaffected. The most difficult challenge for James was that he had come up with the idea of Ullo when he was completing his doctorate. This meant that James had to go off track and dedicate a lot of time to Ullo apart from focusing on his academics.
Although Ullo is based in the United States of America, they have received a lot of interest internationally as well. Regions like Europe, South Africa, Africa and New Zealand have all shown interest in Ullo and James believes at some point he can make this service available to everyone across the world. Ullo is a funded venture which is backed by over 2,000 people.
