The Miracle Machine produces bottles of wine costing just $2 to make.

The brain child of Lot18 co-founders Philip James and Kevin Boyer, The Miracle Machine is a winemaking device that lets owners make their own wine for just a couple of dollars a bottle and in the comfort of their own homes.

The Soda Stream-like appliance turns water and other necessary ingredients like grape concentrate and yeast into wine in three days. The device is designed as a table-top appliance and is made with environmentally sustainable materials.

The Miracle Machine can be controlled via a mobile app, which has a menu of wine recipes and takes the user through the winemaking process. To start making wine, the owner needs to select a type of wine, place the required ingredients into the machine, and then start the process using the app.

The ingredients are available on the Miracle Machine website and on Amazon once the product launches. A kit of ingredients will make a specific type of wine. According to the website, the creators are also planning on creating a monthly wine club where members will receive several kits for under $10 a month.

James and Boyer are launching a Kickstarter campaign for the appliance in a few days.

Update:

It appears that we have been swindled – NPR’s The Salt reports that the Miracle Machine was a marketing ploy to promote the water charity called Wine To Water. Many lives have been ruined by this news.
