Hmm. You got a number of people (6? Mixed gender?) Sealed in a tin can for several months with a full case of wine?

Huston, we have a problem. We can't find the damn corkscrew!

Lift off is somewhere around 5G of force. We can run a centrifuge and cheaply produce that force, there is some sediment that spins out. Reentry is a couple minutes of transition from 0 to 1 gravity force.
I wonder if the force of exiting the earths atmosphere or reentry might cause more taste differences than any thing else.
High energy radiation is a major issue ie a really-really bad case of sun exposure. ?Did they use the good stuff, , the $100 per bottle grade?

I am more interested to know how space wine tastes different, when consumed while orbiting the earth! Any astronaut in this forum? :D

This train of thought is funny, , , the company was selling food to the Boeing contractor at NASA who would freeze dry everything they sent up, and repack it in pouches for rehydration with reclaimed water.

Picture a nice pouch of freeze dried wine which is mixed with reclaimed water (yup reclaimed from that liquid)
