Introducing the first fully automatic appliance that perfectly preserves and chills wine. Plum’s motorized needle pierces any cork or metal screw cap, identifies and chills your wine perfectly for up to 90 days, and preserves up to 150 bottles with its refillable argon canister. All you have to do is decide when to have a glass.
Designed for everyday use, Plum’s patented double-cored needle automatically pierces through the foil and closure, simultaneously extracting wine from the bottle and injecting argon gas to prevent oxidation.
You wouldn’t accept a lukewarm cup of coffee or a cold steak. Wine tastes best at the right temperature. Plum automatically identifies any of the 220 commercially-available varietals and blends, and chills each bottle to the perfect serving temperature.
Beauty Meets Function
Plum’s brushed stainless steel exterior and tubing are modeled after those found in wineries, to preserve the integrity of the wine. Inside, each bottle rests in a dramatically lit chamber inspired by the staves of a wine barrel. At a slim 15 inches wide, its molded outer shell curves around a hidden base, giving it a timeless look in a black and stainless steel color palette that complements other appliances and works well with any room design.
How It Works
Plum’s touchscreen is equipped with a proximity sensor that lights up when you approach, displaying the wine label and creating a virtual tasting room for every bottle. Each bottle chamber has an integrated HD camera that scans the label and automatically identifies the varietal, vintage, region, winery and wine. Then its automated system chills your wine perfectly for up to 90 days.
History of Plum
It began with a simple question. If we could wake up every morning and have the perfect cup of coffee on demand, why couldn’t we have the perfect glass of wine in the evening? We were tired of wanting a glass but not wanting to waste the bottle, or pouring good wine down the drain because it had been open too long. Some nights we wanted a glass of red and our partner wanted white, but we didn’t want to open two bottles. And we were frustrated with waiting for our wine to reach serving temperature, and trying to keep it there. We wanted to enjoy each glass just as the winemaker intended. So we set out to build an appliance that was beautiful enough to look great in our living room or on our kitchen counter, and advanced enough to fully automate preservation and cooling.
