  1. I feel like this is a marketing failure on the part of the boat-based wine-makers. I mean, fake bordeaux, sure, that commands a certain price. But how much cooler would it be to sell wine that was made on a boat?

    Work up some marketing copy about the unique terroir infused by the unpolluted mid-ocean salt air and describe those boats as some kind of fancy vinicultural platform. Way more awesome.
