Shane Cianciolo and Nathan Buffett operate Corks Away wine adventures. They pitch in Shark Tank Season 4, telling of their wine water adventures.
Corks Away has $250,000 first year sales
Wine Adventures serve Wine on the water along with Hors d'oeuvres. Adventures for six guests, doing twelve cruises a week with $250,000 sales in the first year.
They believe that Corks Away can franchise the business. For $175,000 they will provide the boat and the business plan. The boat costs them $35,000.
Right after they pitch the cruise, they also want to create a business selling their Pesto Torte to stores. Lastly, they want to do an indoor Corks Away cruise in Las Vegas.
Shane and Nathan's goal is to get to where they can open up their indoor cruise in Las Vegas. The Sharks laugh, but Shane says they did a crazy thing like opening a casino in the desert.

What do the Shark Tank Investors say about Corks Away?
Mark Cuban has a problem with their business because you can't scale. He is taking the anchor, and he is out.
Daymond John suggested they create the Reisling Ride as another marketing angle. He says that's two R's if you add the Relaxing Reisling Ride, What do you have? Rrr!
Kevin O'Leary sees this as not investible, he's not going to do it, but he might change his mind if he has more wine, and he is the first to buy a ticket on the indoor ride!
Barbara Corcoran says she would have so much fun sailing with them, but she could not sleep if they had her money, she is out.
Robert Herjavec tells him that there a lot of holes in their business model so he is out.
