Aging Wine at the Bottom of the Sea

By Brian Lemay 100 comments


(bright music) – [Narrator] In the
southern part of Croatia, in the peninsula of Peljesac, there is a winemaker that does
things a little differently. – [Narrator] That’s right. This winery ages their wine 75 feet beneath the sea’s surface. (playful music) After growing up around
many traditional winemakers, Edi had an idea to combine
his two favorite pastimes: Scuba diving and drinking wine. So he decided to try
and age wine in the sea. – [Narrator] To avoid any leaks in these ancient storage jars,
Edi uses a glass bottle to keep the wine in and saltwater out. He uses custom-made cages
that line the sea floor to hold the wine in place. – [Narrator] And to Edi, it’s the silence that differentiates his unique underwater wine from the pack. (electronic beep)

Glass is chemically inert. Once the wine goes into the glass bottle the wine stops aging. All he is doing is packaging the wine in an admittedly pretty package with a cool story and marking up the price. This is total BS and anyone who has a modicum of wine knowledge will see that.

The noise that takes place in a traditional wine cellar changes the taste of wine? That is the largest amount of complete fucking horse shit I've ever seen someone say with a straight face…in the last week. This is an incredibly stupid gimmick. I'm sure idiots are lining up to buy his "silenced wine".

seems like a marketing gimmick more than anything else. That whole bullshit about wine in cellars being disturbed is just ridiculous. Its not as if wine makers are constantly going up to their barrels and having conversations with them. Besides, what on earth is sound going to do to a wine in a barrel?

This guy is a great marketer but is so full of shit. Oh is it richer because of the vessel it was aged in, a wine bottle? Yeah you don't see wine aged in wine bottles a lot.

As someone else mentioned, aging is when it stays in contact with the wood from the barrel

You typically barrel age reds and aim to drink whites while they are young. Reds contain more tannins than white since the juice sits inside the skins and seeds longer, while whites are separated juice from the skin quickly. Reds are usually crushed, while whites are pressed. Aging reds allow the tannins, or other suspended substance, to settle making it silkier and less chalky. Whites are usually better young and bright since they don't have as many tannins are more effect by oxidation than reds.

0:45 He simply stored bottled wine under the sea, then removes it time later. Liquor absorbs taste from wood in barrels, it doesn't chemically change with glass walls. This seems like a totally lame process.
