Is It Possible to Turn Water into Wine?

You may think that turning water into wine in the real world is impossible, but is it really? It turns out that it might not be, thanks to one new gadget set to hit the shelves soon.

At the Ideal Wine Company we’ve always been fascinated by the long and varied history of wine. One of its most well-known parts, according to certain sources, occurred 2,000 years ago, when a man called Jesus turned water into wine at a wedding in Canaan.

Whilst the water into wine story is the one myths are made of, and one that has come to hold a particular significance in the Christian religion, it’s not something that we ever thought could be replicated in the modern day. After all, scientifically we would conclude that it’s impossible.

However we might have to change our minds on that as this week technology blogs have blown up with the news of the release of one simple gadget that could, in theory, replicate this amazing feat.

According to sources, it is called the ‘Miracle Machine’ (perhaps a nod to the miracle of the gospels) and it could be set to hit the mainstream very soon. It’s due to launch on kickstarter next week, so we’ll have to wait until then to get the full details.

However we can start with what we do know. When you look a little deeper it turns out that it’s less about recreating a miracle and more about making the wine making process more scientific to bring it into the 21st Century.

The idea was first conceptualised by wine industry veterans, Kevin Boyer and Phillip James. After doing some research in tech haven Silicone Valley, they determined that they could bring something more scientific to the process of wine making. However it took a lot of experimenting and a year before their efforts bore any fruit.

We don’t really know how it works yet; we’ve have to wait until next week to find out. However at the Ideal Wine Company we even find the idea of the Miracle Machine fascinating. However, it’s in its infancy and we somewhat doubt the quality of the wine it would produce. It’s hardly going to be luxury.

So it may not be perfect but the Miracle Machine does highlight something about the wine industry; it thrives on innovation. It has to, in order to keep up with 21st Century technology. The Miracle Machine very well could be the next step.
