The English Wine Diaries episode 64 – Greg Lambrecht

The inventor and founder of the Coravin wine preservation system joins me for this special episode

In this special episode of The English Wine Diaries, brought to you in partnership with Coravin, I am joined by the company’s inventor and founder Greg Lambrecht.  

Having had a successful career in medical technologies and engineering degrees from MIT, Greg combined his knowledge of medical-grade needles with his passion for wine to develop a unique preservation system that allowed him to pour wine without removing the cork. 

The first Coravin wine preservation system, which uses a non-coring needle to pass through the cork while it’s still in the bottle, was launched to the market in 2013. 

 Since the launch of that ground-breaking device, Greg has continued to innovate and has created additional products for still and sparkling wines that give both consumers and trade professionals the freedom to pour wine, in any amount, without feeling the need to finish the entire bottle or waste a single drop. 

To anyone like me, who loves wine, or works in the industry – he is quite frankly a genius!

We talk about the catalyst for the invention of the Coravin wine preservation system, returning to the place Greg had his first taste of wine as a teenager and his hopes and dreams for the future of the brand.
