    Genetically altered wine is the way of the future! Clone grapes will create the nectar of the gods!

    As a Pinot Noir fan, I'm not sure I like the idea of them mucking with the genetics of these grapes.

    I agree with you. There is an art to fine wine making and fooling around in a lab just takes that away.

    Doubtful that this will catch on. I can see some niche producers using it to try and make a name for themselves but otherwise, I think we're quite a ways away from seeing this make any sort of significant impact.

    Nah. If anything, I think it'll probably be popular with the larger, cheaper vintners who are more apt to take a hit in quality for the sake of a sturdier, better traveling wine.
