  • Üllo believes that wine is best enjoyed the way the winemaker intended, without the added sulfites used as a preservative. An estimated three million Americans are sensitive to sulfites resulting in allergies or respiratory problems. Üllo purifies any wine, restoring it to its natural state using a porous, food-grade polymer filter to selectively remove sulfites, while allowing the other compounds in the wine to flow through unaffected.

  • Üllo set out to design and engineer an inclusive line of products that appeal to everyone from the casual wine drinker to the trained sommelier. The design and product architecture should allow wine drinkers to purify and aerate an individual glass or an entire bottle through the filter without disrupting the mood or atmosphere of the experience.

  • Üllo's design-driven transformation of a purely scientific concept into an intuitive consumer product has allowed those with sulfite sensitivities to enjoy wine again.

  • POUR All wine contains sulfites, which are artificial preservatives added during production. They are no longer needed once the bottle is opened. PURIFY Proprietary polymer technology filters away free sulfites and their bitter taste, while allowing other compounds in wine to flow though unaffected. PURE WINE Through Selective Sulfite Capture™, free sulfites are reduced to a more naturally occurring level for most wines.
