Press Release: Napa Valley Winery to Age Wine In Charleston Harbor
Mira Winery, based in Napa Valley, will be the first American winery to experiment with aging wine in the ocean when divers place four cases of 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon in specially designed cages in Charleston Harbor.
“The ocean has similar ideal elements that impact aging – temperature, pressure, humidity, pressure motion, light — or lack thereof — and oxygen,” said Gustavo Gonzalez, Mira Winery Winemaker. “Is there something just as impactful and interesting in aquaoir as there is about terroir? We are going to try and find out.”
