Scientists create particle accelerator to test wine authenticity
October 1, 2008 § Leave a comment
As concern over the authenticity of wine grows, this authentification system reassures wineries, retailers, auction houses, and consumers that they are purchasing the real thing. Often times, wine can be counterfeit by placing a fake label on a newer, cheaper bottle of wine to make it seem like a better vintage. This scientific development combats this manner of counterfeiting by ionically testing both the glass bottle, its label and its cork.
