THE FUTURE OF EVERYTHING Oct. 12, 2018
The Winery That Fits in a Closet
Countertop beer-brewing kits are common. But what if you could produce Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay in a series of odorless, biodegradable plastic bags, using nothing but grapes and a machine the size of a small trash can? That’s the promise of the GOfermentor Junior, an automated winery 30 inches high and 18 inches deep and no louder than a refrigerator. Geared toward the oenophile making wine for private consumption, it goes on sale in early 2019 for $500.
