The 'eto' device uses a patented design to completely eliminate air in the decanter as it is sealed.

This prevents oxidation and can therefore keep open wine fresh for up to 12 days, according to its British designer Tom Cotton.

The inventor launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise £55,000 to put the decanter into production.
