What Happened To Goverre After Shark Tank?

Season after season, "Shark Tank" introduces the world to dozens of eager entrepreneurs. Two such entrepreneurs are Regan Kelaher and Shannon Zeppala, the creators of Goverre glasses. In 2017, the two women brought one of the best alcohol products onto Season 8 of "Shark Tank," hoping to strike a deal of $200,000 for a 13% equity stake in Goverre.

Before "Shark Tank," Kelaher and Zappala had raised $63,457 through a 2014 Kickstarter to get their brand off the ground. They used the initial capital to perfect their prototype and fund their first production run, and by no stretch of the imagination, they were doing well — Goverre had made more than $500,000 in sales in 2016. However, by appearing on the show, the duo hoped to find assistance in increasing their production and retail scope. 

In the end, Goverre partnered with sharks Lori Greiner, Mark Cuban, and Robert Herjavec, settling on 33.3% equity in exchange for the desired $200,000. The sharks fell in love with the product's design.

Goverre is essentially an adult sippy cup

So what exactly did Regan Kelaher and Shannon Zappala bring to the tank? Not your standard wine tumbler, but rather, a portable wine glass that looks a lot like an adult sippy cup. The first feature that sets the Goverre wine glass apart from other portable glasses is its construction from double-thick white soda-lime glass. Glass was an obvious choice for Goverre, as, unlike plastic or stainless steel, glass doesn't alter the taste of wine. 

Secondly, each Goverre glass is wrapped in a removable textured silicone sleeve. As you might expect, the silicone provides grip and temperature stability, and — here comes the sippy cup aspect — has a spill-proof lid for easy sipping. Although the lids aren't entirely leak-proof, they're certainly an improvement over no lid at all. 

Perhaps best of all, Goverre sleeves come in a range of bright, pastel, and neutral colors. We're not saying you have to match your glass to your outfit or the wines you'll be craving this summer, but the option is there. So far, sales have certainly been booming.

Where are Goverre glasses now?

Goverre is still going strong, racking up $4.6 million in sales in two years after appearing on "Shark Tank," and boasting a net worth of about $3 million as of 2023. The brand has since branched out into additional products, including cocktail glasses, champagne flutes, bottle stoppers, corkscrews, and even glass charcuterie plates. We're not saying Goverre's charcuterie plates will make for a perfect charcuterie board, but we're also not saying they won't. Plus, everything is dishwasher-safe.

You can purchase all Goverre products, including the original wine glasses (available in 10 colors), from the brand's website, Amazon, Walmart, and other select stores throughout the U.S. and Canada. However, it's worth noting that Amazon seems to currently sell only sets of two and four glasses, as single glasses appear to be out of stock. You can still purchase a single glass through the Goverre website, though, for $28.
