I'm sure you like to pretend its a subtle sophistication... but at the end of the day it's just farking rotted fruit to get drunk on.

Climb off your high horse. You haven't even tried it.


You could charge yourself $40 before you take a sip, that will probably render the delicate notes and balance of flavors you're accustomed to.

THIS.

I'm not a wine connoisseur; cheap wine tastes pretty much like expensive wine to me....

/ maybe i'm just a poor "commoner" who has no discerning taste...

It's you.

There's a definite difference between your average (retail) $6-$9 bottle of wine and your $12-$18 bottle of wine.

There's a more subtle difference between your average $12-$18 bottle of wine and your $25-$35 bottle of wine.

Beyond that, I'm sure some people can detect a difference when you get in the super expensive range, but most people it's probably a waste.

$500 for the machine, and probably $5 to $10 for a sachet.  And a three day wait.  And probably a stinky cleanup process.   I'll just head over to my local Trader Joe's if I'm looking for a decent but inexpensive bottle of wine.

Neat idea, though.

I brew my own wine. I know what crap wine tastes like and I know what good wine tastes like. The racks of bottles in my profile should let you know how much experience I have in shiatty wine.

Go be poor somewhere else. I was making a Jesus joke and you had to take it super cereal.

This week on Ancient Alien, we will show how recently discovered ancient "out of this world" technology was used during the time of Jesus of Nazareth. Was there a government coverup?

Same here.  I imagine that it'll turn out as well as "bread" from one of those machines were you add water, a powder, push a start button and a couple of hours later, you have "bread."

I can turn water into wine.

/by adding grape juice and yeast

Expensive wine tastes better because it is expensive.  Multiple studies have been done on this.

It does not turn water into wine. It turns concentrated grape juice, yeast and water into wine just like any home vintage kit.

I'm a pretty avid home brewer, and can make great farking wine for about $6 a bottle and 2 years of waiting.

If I lived in the US, I'd probably quit brewing beer and wine... it's so farking cheap down there, I couldn't make it for the same price.
