There is a certain ritual to sharing a bottle of wine. The opening of the bottle, the pouring of the wine, the clinking together of glasses.
And then there is the aroma, and the flavor itself. Every bottle of wine is slightly different, and to share a bottle is to exist uniquely in the world at a certain moment in time.
All of which,bin a way, makes it a prime candidate for a remote social experience. When, if ever, will we be able to replicate that feeling while being in two separate geographic locations?
I know that it is a difficult question, but the process of asking it already tells us a lot about the nature of human connection.
