PureWine Inc. is a privately held company founded in 2014 by a father and son team, Dr. David Meadows and his son Derek.
Both father and son suffered from wine headaches and experienced allergic reactions to red, white, rosé and sparkling wines.
But, like true scientists, they didn’t suffer in silence — they set out to understand the problem and to solve it.
Together, father and son spent two years in the laboratory looking for a solution to the side effects of wine. The ‘Eureka moment’ came one day in the lab when David and Derek found the precise means to selectively remove histamines and sulfites without otherwise changing the chemistry of wine.
“We could see that our filtration was working, but when we tried that big, bold Cab and it was every bit as delicious as it was in the tasting room in Napa, we knew we had it,” says David.
“That’s when we toasted each other – To Your Health! – and that’s our motto today at PureWine,” adds Derek.
In 2016, the duo launched the first PureWine product, The Wand™, for a glass of wine, followed in mid-2018 by The Wave™ for a bottle of wine.
