The Sonic Decanter is an innovative device that uses high frequency sound waves to improve the flavor, aroma and mouthfeel of wine. The device uses sound waves to break down preservatives like sulfur dioxide, transform the chemical and molecular structure of wine and speed up the aging process.

Ultrasonic energy has previously been used in water treatment, biofuel treatment and milk homogenization processes, but the Sonic Decanter marks the first time the technology is being applied to wine.

The Sonic Decanter was recently the subject of a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. The first set of decanters are expected to ship in May 2015. You can pre-order one for $169, though the eventual price is set to be $249.
