“Copa Di Vino” translates to “a glass of wine”. Drinking wine has become a necessity for many people but the need for a glass and a corkscrew to drink some wine has been inevitable. To eradicate the need for these accessories, Copa Di Vino was invented.
It is a wine that comes in a glass and can be drunk on the go. It comes in seven varieties- Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, White Zinfandel, Cabernet, and Moscato.

Who is the owner of copa de Vino?
James Martin came up with the idea of Copa Di Vino while traveling in a bullet train in southern France. He had an ancestral farm in Oregon that he left to work in technological industry but he returned to work on the farm and decided to modify the way in which wines were sold. So, he came up with Copa Di Vino.
What happened to COPA wine on Shark Tank?
Before coming on the show, Copa Di Vino had already established a great name in the market. James came on Shark Tank to take advantage of the sharks’ contacts and expand his business. He appeared twice on the show- First in season 2 episode 205, when Kevin O’Leary made a deal on the patent of the container and second, in season 3 episode 308. James came seeking an investment of $300,000 for 5% equity for the business.
Since it appeared in season 2, they had earned $5 million. Because of the great demand, James was seeking an investment to open a second line of the business. Kevin O’Leary offered $300,000 for 51% and said that he would drink $1,000 worth of wine to console himself for the lost opportunity. James offered $1,000 worth of wine in Copa Di Vino to Kevin because he knew Kevin is a wine lover but Kevin did not change his offer. When asked by Mark Cuban if he would lower the valuation, James agreed and Kevin immediately offered $300,000 for 12%.
The sharks wanted to discuss and hence, James got a few minutes to discuss with a friend of his. He asked the founder of Sam Adams Beer, Jim Koch and he told James to reject the offer presented. When he came back in on the stage, James was offered $600,000 for 30% by Mark, Kevin and Robert Herjavec. James was not ready accept and thus, Mark and Robert pulled out their hands and only Kevin was left. Kevin gracefully accepted the wine offered to the sharks by James and he walked out without any offer from the sharks.

Copa Di Vino has been doing great in the market. It had earned $20 million as annual revenue in 2020 and as of 2021, it had an annual revenue of $70 million.
