The Oenophile’s Personal Winery

Combining traditional winemaking techniques with modern oenological technology, the device conducts the entire post-harvest process in its stainless steel chamber–cold soaking, pressing, and fermenting the grapes–and ages the wine for up to twelve months. Immediately following harvest, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are crushed, frozen, and sent to your home, ensuring your vintage is made using only the finest grapes. Price $6,000

The system automatically monitors the fermentation heat, aging temperature, and Brix (grape sugar level), and wirelessly transmits the information to a PC where it can be logged, graphed, and analyzed using the included software. The winery prompts you to smell and taste the fermenting must and press down the grape skins, and the software provides techniques for producing vintages with specific characteristics from bold and fruity to delicate and silky.
