    The miracle machine that turns cheap plonk into vintage wine - in just half an hour

    I don't know enough about how wine ages to debate the above, but the following set the alarm bells off in my head:

    Mmm-hmm....

    True, how does aging orange juice make it taste fresher? :confused:

    My understanding is that wine ages by the acids and alcohol in the wine reacting slowly and producing esters which gives older wines their fragrances. I don't know how ultrasound would do that.

    It's a complex chemical process and this product is bogus. Some beers age in the same way.
