Greg Lambrecht is the inventor, founder, and boardmember of Coravin, Inc. His devoted passion for wine, engineering degrees from MIT, and successful career in medical technologies converged when he innovated the wine tech sector by creating a wine preservation system known today as Coravin. Coravin uses a non-coring needle to pass through the cork while it’s still in the bottle. 

Since that first device, Greg has continued to innovate, launching additional products for still and sparkling wines that give consumers and trade professionals alike the freedom to pour any wine, in any amount, without feeling the need to finish the entire bottle or fear of wasting a single drop. 

In this episode, Greg talks about his journey into the wine industry. He shares stories about his invention process behind Coravin, giving details about it that are both personal and fun, because behind every success story there are multiple failures. However, it is exactly the passion for wine combined with Greg’s dedication to create something that will at first fit his own needs and then fit the needs of many industry professionals and wine enthusiasts alike.
