I thought this was a great article (i actually read about this in Business Week, but when i googled it the Wired article, which seems better, came up first).

There are several wine related manga comics which have sold a few million copies and its leading to a localized boom in wine sales. Very cool.

The first time I open a bottle of wine and it pours out like that I will be very surprised.

The only time I had wine flow like that for me was when I was on the international space station stocking their wine cellar ... kidding of course. ;-)

Wouldn't astronauts have to drink re-hydrated powdered wine? That would probably be even more disheartening than the neopolitan ice cream.
