Never know what you'll find out on a late night romp around the net. Tonight we found a lovely spray option for your wine, it's kind of like Binaca (does that still exist?) for your glass.
So2Go (from Australia--as if they don't have enough problems). But I suppose if you're trying to combat the sulfitage from Yellow Tail or the summer of riesling..
Here's the way they want you to use it:
How to drink preservative free wine.
SO2GO is perfect for a night out or in. It is so easy to transport in your pocket or handbag and can be sprayed directly into your glass of wine or emptied into a bottle. SO2GO works by saturating the wine with oxygen.
This burst of oxygen binds to the Sulphur, neutralising it, leaving you with pure wine and no preservatives. It will not affect the flavour or quality of your wine or Champagne at all. Winemakers use the same solution to remove bulk preservatives prior to bottling but some remain in order to stop the wine from spoiling in the bottle.
This is not a joke. They are for real. I suppose it's better than carrying a hypo in your pocket to protect against anaphlactic shock.
How does it work? I have no idea, but I found this on their website and --if you wondered why I wrote the kinds of things I do and want to educate about the other side? Here you go.
"How does So2Go combat sulphites?The productis based on the same process used by winemakers. It contains a measured, dilute level of food grade Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2). Winemakers use H2O2 to remove bulk preservatives prior to bottling. SO2GO works by saturating the wine with oxygen shortly before consumption. This burst of oxygen binds to the Sulphur, neutralising it. SO2GO is designed to neutralise between 50% and 80% of free Sulphur Dioxide in an average 750ml bottle of wine.
I just want to say, food grade H202? I do love it for infections, and even if this crack pot site tells me it's a miracle substance. Personally, I'm onto apple cider vinegar myself, but I'm not spraying that on my wine.
