Safe Drinking

Due to the country’s public health policies that ensure the availability of condoms, vintners such as Orestes Estevez uses these rubber sheaths to help with the fermentation process of his 300 five gallon jugs filled with Cuban grapes and tropical fruits and vegetables. As Orestes puts it, “Putting a condom on a bottle is just like with a man. It stands up, the wine is ready, and then the process is completed.”

Sorry, readers! Know that image is probably never going to leave your brain, but anyone else curious to try this wine making process at home?
