The latest gimmick: "Virtual Wine Tasting"

I swear, this is not a shill!

The wine tasting’s not virtual. The winemaker’s just participating by video chat.

Robert , this is just the start…

And the sense being transmitted isn’t limited to taste:

Outside of science fiction, I don’t think we’re going to have virtual or remote tasting any time soon.

Even in science fiction, fine wines and liquors are often rare and valuable because they can’t be replicated well.
