Charcoal wine ‘the future’ says Armit futurologist

Paint the town green: Edible glasses and bottles

Hanging back lit wine glasses.

“When it comes to packaging, compostable, non-plastic glasses made from corn starch will come to the fore. The ‘glass’ is fully-compostable, so festival-goers can party like rock-stars whilst doing their bit for the planet. Edible bottles will also help counteract packaging waste; with wine bottled in an edible membrane made from sugar substitute, isomalt.

“Brazilian company – Embraoa, has started developing edible membranes from papaya, complementing wine tasting profiles with the flavour of the vessel itself, bringing a whole new meaning to wine pairing!”

  1. Wonderful! I agree that we will be drinking more domestic wines: climate change will mean that transport costs will be prohibitive and that there will be more countries capable of producing wine as our classic regions will have to deal with crop diversification. I also see that irrigation will be rendered illegal, not only in Europe as per tradition, but also globally, as freshwater supplies disappear. Dry farming legislation will be the norm everywhere, not just Europe, which will create a level playing field and will mean fewer wines, but better wines and healthier soils.
