Aging wine underwater
CHARLESTON, S.C.-There's an experiment underway to see how the motion of the ocean, temperature and light ages wine when its underwater. Napa Valley based Mira Winery packed some bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon in specially designed steel mesh cases that will be placed in undisclosed places of Charleston harbor for three-months. The owner of the winery, Jim Dyke, Jr., is from Charleston. Wine recovered from sunken ships has a unique taste and the ocean is thought to have something to do with it. Wine makers in Europe have tried the ocean test but this is the first in the U.S.
