A company has brought out a product that uses the concept of the world’s oldest miracle to convert water into wine at home. The makers of the ‘Miracle Machine’ claim it is the world’s first affordable accelerated winemaking device for the home and has been designed as a table top appliance.
The machine, the brainchild of two wine industry veterans Kevin Boyer and Philip James, explores the possibility of accelerating the winemaking process using a low amount of heat and a computer controlled environment.
The company’s site said at the heart of the miracle machine lies the fermentation chamber that uses an array of electrical sensors, transducers, heaters and pumps to provide a controlled environment for the primary and, as needed, secondary fermentation stages.

The process of developing the machine came together in 12 months. The process involves a digital refractometer that measures the sugar content of the liquid during the fermentation process, a custom-designed ceramic air-diffuser pumps filtered air under a regulated micro-oxygenated environment, aerating the wine and thus softening the tannins.
Meanwhile an ultrasonic transducer, positioned directly underneath the chamber, resonates effectively speeding up the flavor development of the wine.
The grape concentrate, yeast, and the final sachet of ingredients can be bought through the company’s website, and Amazon, once it is launched. The company said it was planning on creating a low cost monthly “wine” club, where for under $10 per month consumers would receive several kits, enough to make a bottle of wine a week.
