During a career that spanned more than 50 years, Charles Leonhardt innovated and designed technology solutions which utilized ultrasonic energy. Those projects included work in aviation, spacecraft controls and medical devices. He worked with various liquids during his career which were carefully evaluated after exposure to ultrasonic energy.
After a successful career he retired and began making wines for his own pleasure and consumption. He was urged to consider how ultrasonic energy could play a role in making wine taste better.
After years of research and much experimentation he found a new and successful application of ultrasonic energy. He filed for and was granted patents for the process that now forms the cornerstone of our technology platform.
When Mike met Charlie they immediately forged a vision for how Charlie’s technology and Mike’s consumer product and beverage marketing experience could bring an entirely new technology to all the people who enjoy wine. They set out to create that vision based on their shared passion.
Dionysus Technology Concepts Inc, (DTC)was formed and has licensed the exclusive use of the patents for all consumer appliance applications, and is now on the eve of launching our Sonic Decanter® to the public!
DTC has organized a team of technology, marketing, wine and beverage professionals, skilled in all essential areas to assist in the process of bringing the most exciting innovation to the wine industry in centuries.
The first prototype was created using a 3D printer. This 99% accurate print was then used to integrate the components for the Sonic Decanter®. Further component integration and testing was performed to ensure the effectiveness of the Sonic Decanter® design.
