Paris May 14, 2018 – On March 28, French startup Aveine launched its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to finance the production of its first device: The Smart Wine Aerator. Within a month, the French startup entered the exclusive club of the 3% of companies to raise over $100,000 from a crowdfunding campaign. On the last day of the campaign, the amount raised reached $121,400 thanks to 755 backers from 51 countries.

The art of degustation made accessible for everyone

Created and developed by a team of passionate wine and tech enthusiasts, the Aveine Smart Wine Aerator helps democratize the art of tasting. Connected to its data-rich app, Aveine calibrates and precisely aerates any wine instantly in just three steps: place the aerator on the bottle, scan the label of the bottle, and serve.

Backers from all over the world

The initial ambition was to raise $30,000 to launch production of the first batch of Aerators. Within 24 hours, the startup fulfilled its goal. Three weeks later the project raised $100,000 from more than 500 backers, and ended the campaign strong with $121,400 thanks to 755 backers from 51 countries. Reaching this new milestone gives Aveine the opportunity to finance additional projects: the shooting of a video featuring tasting tips from a sommelier, and the development of a wine temperature indicator for future models.

While waiting for delivery…

The end of a crowdfunding campaign marks the beginning of a new step for Aveine: entry into the production phase. Delivery of the first units of the Smart Wine Aerator are scheduled for September 2018. Until then, the adventure continues, and it is still possible to order the Aerator on Indiegogo InDemand. Until its official market launch, the Aerator is available at a preferential price of $175 instead of $249. By ordering, contributors will give Aveine the opportunity to continue its development efforts.
