  • Aging wine in a harbor?

    Not sure how this would work if the temp was near a constant 55' as the article states.......Also, wouldn't the pressure difference be negated by the wine bottle itself?

    Yeah, 55 degrees shouldn't speed up aging. Sounds like a strange way to try to accelerate aging.

    Pressure would have an effect on the gas in the headspace, compressing it and creating a pressure gradient that would tend to push the cork inwards. But the headspace is probably too small to have any significant effect on the integrity of the seal.
