(French bakers copied the Portuguese technique.) The Portuguese people who spin these tales are a dist... Read More
Cameras have been the domain of robotic vineyard tools recently – they take photos of vines to help vintners understand vine health and maturation. A team of researchers from Purdue University are expanding the robotic reach of vineyard technology by developing a machine that can prune vines. “A year from now, robots could be pruning your vines,...

In the delicious debate over which closure is best, blows are landed on a daily basis like the featured bout on a fight card. The latest haymaker came from The Huffington Post’s Eleanor Shannon, who, with the intrepid coaxing of the environment in her corner, came out swinging this past week in defense of the cork enclosure. “Cork is infinitely ...
