According to Ullo’s Kickstarter page, a wine drinker can place the gadget on top of their wine glass. A filter made from food grade polymer then removes sulphites in wine as it is poured – returning the wine to its ‘natural state’, according to the companionship.
Sulphites are widely present in wines and many winemakers contend that – even in small amounts – they are essential in helping to prevent oxidisation and preserving freshness in wine.

But sulphites are a recognised allergen
Several producers of so-called natural wine turn down to use sulfites at all, while others have sought to reduce usage in recent years.
By the end of 23 July, Ullo had raised around $16,000. Kornacki, a chemistry graduate, founded Ullo as a business in 2014 in Chicago and said he made the device in partnership with design agency Minimal.
Ullo said 10 filters were liable to cost $20 and a launch is plotted for February 2016.
