The Perfect Sommelier is a magnetic gadget that makes a $2 bottle of wine taste like a $50 bottle.
Creator Bob Lutzker guarantees cheap wine will taste different after placing the bottle on the Sommelier for 30 minutes.
The gadgets magnetic field ages the wine, opening up its flavors and making it smoother.
Lutzker says any wine red or white tastes less aggressive after a go on the Sommelier.
Hes heard of people using it at dinner parties to age Two-Buck Chuck, slapping a napkin or fancy wine label on the cheap bottle to hide its true identity.
Restaurants have also used the Sommelier to make their inexpensive wines taste premium.
Another way for boozehounds to save money during tough times is to put cheap vodka through a Brita filter, which is said to purify it into top-shelf alcohol.
