Wine Clip: Fantastic or Fabulous Fiction?


Our sister site Cheap Fun Wines just put up an interesting post about a gizmo called the Wine Clip. Here's what they had to say: "(it's) a clip you put on the neck of your wine bottle, and the creators claim it uses the power of magnetism to break up the tannins into smaller tannins or something like that, and give you a smoother taste."

Our experience ends with the BeerClip, but does anybody out there have experience with this? Sounds like those copper bracelets people wear to stop arthritis or something...does it really work? We also wonder what would happen if you put it on the neck of some bottom shelf bottle of bourbon or something...

I have no experience with this device, but I'm perfectly comfortable answering your question: it makes no difference in the taste of your wine whatsoever.

It's bollocks. Standard pseudo-science about magnetism and it's effect on fluids & molecules.

Here's a detailed analysis, complete with an independent double-blind analysis care of Dan's Data.

I give them points for the little directional arrow. I presume pointing it towards the bottle is supposed to make the wine worse.
