Let us all rejoice for we are on the brink of having one less wine problem. So, you know how some wines give you a headache after drinking, even after only half a glass? Startup company Üllo has a wine filter that could stop those headaches altogether by eliminating the sulfites that are believed to cause them.

We’ve all been there: You’ve only taken a sip (fine, more like a swig) of vino and before you get your buzz on, a pesky pain stops you in your tracks. Hopefully one of your resourceful friends brought a pack of wine condoms to re-seal the bottle, otherwise this night of would-be drunkenness is officially a total loss.

But as Üllo founder James Kornacki tells, with the wine-purifying system, we no longer have to suffer through the side effects of a wine hangover when we’ve barely consumed enough wine to get tipsy.

Interesting. So how will this sulfite-zapping magnet affect the wine?

If you’re tired of curving that bottle of Merlot that’s collecting dust in your cabinet, it just might be worth a shot. Üllo costs around $80 per device, plus the filters, will run you $3 a pop and need to be replaced after each use.

So, is it too late to add this to our Christmas wine wishlist?
