Wine industry veterans Kevin Boyer and Philip James have the art of winemaking down to a science thanks to their computer-controlled, libation-creating contraption.

With its sleek, minimalistic design, the mobile app-controlled Miracle Machine condenses winemaking into an easy three-day process. Built from environmentally sustainable material, the Miracle Machine can create many types of wine, including cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, pinot noir and sauvignon blanc.

Once the user adds finishing flavors to give the wine an aged taste, drinks can be served 24 hours later or stored for up to two weeks.

To get started, users of an iOS or Android device can choose from a selection of pre-defined wine types. It also includes the ideal grape concentrate and type of yeast for the wine of choice.

The product’s website explains all the essentials new winemakers will need to replicate their favorites. After the user pours the concentrate and yeast into the machine with 600 milliliters of water, the Miracle Machine app tracks the progress as the blend ferments.

Customers can expect to make a substantial investment — the Miracle Machine will sell for $499 after its launch. However, the grape concentrate and powder it uses to make the wine will be priced at just $2 on the product’s website and Amazon.com. The creators hope to fund the product through a Kickstarter campaign that hasn’t started yet.

The home wine-making machine will be available in black, white and bronze.

The Miracle Machine could be a good choice for retailers looking to expand their kitchenware selections. Keep an eye out for it to hit the market, and sign up for notifications on the company’s website.
