Micro-Merlots, Pico-Pinotages, Nano-Nebbiolos

Abstract:
The future has arrived, and it's Lilliputian. Nanotechnology, or engineering at an atomic scale, can deliver self-cleaning fridges, cutlery and socks; milk that tells you it's gone off by changing the colour of the label, and interactive meals. This tiny new world looks set to revolutionize wine as the age of programmable beverages dawns.

Boffins at US food giant Kraft have developed a colourless, tasteless liquid in the lab that consumers can configure as they see fit - colour, flavour and even nutrients can be programmed and activated using microwaves. Goodbye cork taint, hello programmable alcohol levels - nanotechnology can deliver solutions to the age-old problems of wine.
