I'm sure there is a machine that does that and like all machines it can jam... but my first reaction is "How does that even happen??"

This brings to mind the delete button in Microsoft Windows.  Are you sure?  Yes.  Are you serious??  Yes.  Progressing beyond this point may result in major loss of functionality.  Are you really, REALLY sure???

Better open this one outdoors, and keep it aimed far away from any loved ones.   ;D

reminds me of bottling my first 2 batches of wine last night. The pinot grigio went off without a hitch in clear bottle, but the cabernet in dark glass, well lets just say there was one bottle with 2 corks in it and a nice little gusher of cabernet went almost everywhere. But  I would also be afraid to open the bottle in the OP

Curious to hear how your wine turns out, Frank. I've been kicking around the idea for my wife, the beer non-enthusiast. Hell, I've made cider for close to 20 years. Pretty sure I can handle it.

Samples tell me that it will be just as good as the cheap stuff we drink if we are drinking wine. Not even close to being snobby wine drinkers. Compared to brewing, it was pretty darn easy. Just transfer juice, pitch, and walk away. I would say that with the right tools, $70 Ferrari corker and  I think $15 Ferrari automatic bottle filler, bottling was easy once I understood the process and avoided newb mistakes like I described above
