Drink up! Or not. Now, you can save as much wine as you want for up to 30 days after opening a bottle — if you drink out of Kuvee‘s new smart wine bottle.

The Boston-based winery startup announced today that it served itself a $6 million investment led by General Catalyst and Founder Collective.

Kuvee’s system works as a wine dispenser that prevents oxygen from getting inside your wine, allowing the removable bottles to stay fresh. The Kuvee also allows you to order new wine supplies directly from a small screen on the face of its bottle.

Preorders for the Kuvee bottle started today in Indiegogo, for which the $179 super early bird offer is already sold out. The Kuvee kit will retail al $349, including the smart bottle, four different wine choices, and $160 voucher for refills .

Kuvee will start shipping to California and Massachusetts in October. Other states will have to wait until December and early 2017.

Bolt and other angel investors also participated in the round.
