Last year you read in this column about how Lodi's Michael David Winery sent some of its grape juice up to the International Space Station as part of a scientific experiment. The juice came back to earth a couple months later after fermenting in space (the first in history). The grape juice was shot into space in plastic IV bags. An identical experiment was being conducted at the same time here on earth. However, the bags inexplicably developed gas and sprung a leak in space, says winemaker and project manager Jeff Farthing.
