While the possibility of sipping liquor directly from a Universal Serial Bus interface might seem a dream for a lot of computer users out there, that's not at all the subject of this article. No, we're talking about a brand new wine, whose name is inspired directly by the famous port that can be found on pretty much any computer nowadays.
The reason why Peltier Station Winery, the maker of this very unusual wine, went for this name is a new regulation imposed by the European Union. According to this new rule, no wineries except for the ones based in Portugal can use "port" in the name of their products. Since Peltier Station is based in California, it would have been pretty difficult for them to go around this decision.
This is the reason why the winery came up with the very bright idea of naming their wine USB, a word that immediately triggers "port" in pretty much anyone's mind. And to take things even further, the label applied on the bottles (developed by 6 West Design) even sports a couple of roots that actually resemble the USB symbol.
Now, for those of you who really know your wine better than just picking up the cheapest bottle on the shelf, here's what Peltier Station has to say about its product: "An amazing example of a true Zinfandel port. Beautifully made with a serious nose of chocolate balanced with ruby cherry and spice; this port makes a great dessert an extraordinary one." Other features of the wine, made from the Lodi Apellation, include an alcohol level of 16.8 percent, a Brix of 25.8 degrees at harvest, plus the fact that we're dealing with a 500 ml bottle, with only 250 cases being made.
One bottle of Peltier Stations' USB wine sells for approximately 25 bucks, which is a fairly small price for getting "filled-up" with "information." Careful, though, don't "download data" and go driving after. We are just a few, but there are many of you, Softpedia users, out there.
