For years and years, it's been known that wine appeals to hovering bugs including gnats and fruit flies. Many believe there is a reference to the fact in the Bible (Matthew 23:24). Many a wine drinker's normally nice outdoor experience may be a failure, or at least dampered, by the discovery of a pest or two floating around in their wine glass. Wine drinkers have improvised to handle this problem by placing coasters, CD cases, beverage napkins, and paperback books on top of wine glasses. All of these have been largely worthless, primarily because they're not designed for the purpose.
The Wine-Tapa is specifically made to finally give wine lovers peace of mind. This wine accessory will fit wine glasses with rims from 2-4 inches wide across. It sits solidly on top of the glass due to a closed-cell foam gasket on its underside, which forms a tight seal with the wine glass and stops the rim from cracking. Its center is a dense, stainless-steel mesh which helps prevent outside entry by insects, but is porous enough to allow the wine to continue to breathe. Only remove the wine glass cover, sip, and replace.
"Spain's famed tapas were developed in the 19th century in Andalusia in the southern area of Spain. Andalusia is sherry country, and the tale is that drinkers in local taverns took to putting pieces of a loaf of bread on top of their glasses between sips to keep the flies out (tapas derives from the verb tapar which means "to cover")." - The Joy of Cooking
