Vinamor Wine Aerator on Shark Tank
Vinamor Aerator Season 3 - Episode 309 - Update
Gary DeJohn is the inventor of the Vinamor wine aerator system to properly breathe a glass of wine within seconds. By pouring your wine in the Vinamor sitting on top your wine glass it creates the greatest amount of surface area to breathe much faster than traditional aerators. DeJohn came into the Shark Tank with this invention that he was sure he could snag at least one shark on, specifically Kevin O'Leary, who is a connoisseur of wines and even owns his own Winery in Canada.

of wine every time
At that time, Gary has sold about 1000 Vinamor's direct to consumers at a Restaurant he works at and where this invention originated to fulfill a need for a better wine aerator. Most of his wine customer's end up taking one home at a retail cost of $40. DeJohn's cost to produce a Vinamor stands at $20 at that time. According to our connoisseur wine loving Shark Kevin O'Leary, that's way too much for this product. DeJohn agrees, and that's why he needs this investment so he can find a cheaper manufacture overseas. As cool as this invention is for the wine market, the Sharks seem to go out in quick fashion until only O'Leary was left. He complimented DeJohn on his design and the revolutionary way of combining an aerator with a way to also measure the quantity, but ultimately he's already in that business with other aerators and proceeds to go out. Gary didn't want to take no for an answer ( I can't blame him), and he takes one more shot at Kevin by offering him 45% of the business, but O'Leary already made up his mind and declines Gary's new offer.
Vinamor Aerator after the Shark Tank Update
Gary may have not made a deal with the Sharks, but it did little to slow down the Vinamor progress as the Shark Tank Effect created thousands of new orders from all over the world. His phone was slammed with other investors all wanting a piece of the wine aerator business. From what I was able to find out, DeJohn still owns 100% of the business and may not be looking for Angel Investors at this time. DeJohn was able to get a better manufacturing deal and lower his costs on the Vinamor that now retail's for only $24.95 Online.
One interesting fact that was revealed after the show was Gary sold most of the Vinamor's to the producers and a few of the Sharks, including Kevin O'Leary. So now, I guess Kevin really does own them all.
