Invineo smart wine dispenser

The project started with passionate people, who wanted to enhance the experience of drinking wine by the glass. Invineo offers an all-in-one patented solution for horeca managers. it includes a selection of wines packaged in a specific bottle and served by a smart and connected Dispenser. The Invineo Dispenser serves wine by the glass well-tempered, with precision and elegance and protects wines against oxidation for a long period of time.

The task of Helbling was to develop and industrialize the high-end Dispenser.

Our Contribution

  • Conduct an audit of the initial prototype
  • Design and industrialize the system: mechanical components and integration, electronics and software
  • Optimize the cooling system (calculation, simulations and design)
  • Refine the industrial design and usability
  • Conduct Life-Cycle-Assessment (LCA) and optimize packaging
  • Project planning and rolling cost calculation
  • Help to identify and select a partner for the series production


Helbling has developed and industrialized the device to make it ready for production. The dispenser is now being produced by a partner in Europe.
The system was presented at various trade fairs and met with great interest in the HoReCa industry. Professionals have tested the high-end device and are enthusiastic.
