Haven’t we all tried to make our own wine in our basement? Usually, it’s a hit or miss type of thing. No need for expertise or even a vineyard with the WinePod. All you need is a computer and an electrical outlet.
The Provina WinePod integrates a wine press and fermentation unit into a 4 foot tall steel container that will contain your in-house wine for 6 months. One batch of wine can fill up to 60 bottles. It’s a novel new way of making your own wine, and highly technical.
The WinePod not only includes the stainless steel structure, but a Dashboard and software that interact with the WinePod, letting you monitor your wine. It also includes membership in a "community" of WinePod owners (winemakers like yourself) so that you can pool knowledge. Provina offers access to Napa and Sonoma grapes, destemmed and quick frozen, so that you can make Napa and Sonoma wines all year long (grapes not included in the price).
This is a nifty concept really, combining age-old processes with new technology and taking in-home winemaking to the next level. I’d love to try it. Next time I have $3,499 sitting around, I just might.
