Bold Patents Secures Patent for Client’s Innovative Champagne Cork


Mountlake Terrace, Washington – Bold Patents® announced today that our client, Michael B. Christian of Elon, North Carolina, inventor of the self-releasing stopper cork for champagne and other bottles of compressed liquids, has been granted a utility patent.

With the seasonal and New Year’s festivities fast approaching, people will be enjoying champagne, prosecco, and other sparkling beverages, at celebrations timed to a specific moment. But opening a bottle of bubbly presents challenges if the cork does not pop when desired or at high velocity, resulting in spilled champagne and potential injuries. Now, revelers can raise a glass without a hassle.

On November 7, 2023, the US Patent and Trademark Office granted a patent for a system and method for an easily operated self-releasing stopper cork. The cork has a stopper with an easy-to-use self-release mechanism that allows the operator to open the bottle from a safe distance. Mr. Christian’s invention solves the need for an improved pressurized sealing stopper for bottles of champagne.

Our team of patent attorneys and patent agents worked closely with Michael during the application process, leveraging our experience and track record of success in patent prosecution. The self-releasing stopper cork patent reflects our commitment to helping inventors, scientists, and entrepreneurs bring their innovations to the market and protect their patent rights.
