Using condoms in winemaking is actually a thing in Cuba

By Jessica Pitocchi

One winemaker likes to make sure his product is in *safe* hands.

One winemaker in Cuba has incorporated a rather unusual item into the fermentation process for his homemade wine – condoms.

And get this: he also uses them for “protecting” (ha) the fruit from the harsh economic environment.

Not a joke, not a late April Fool’s. This really happens.

Orestes Estevez makes a little hole in the top of the condom and eventually it begins to rise, “just like a guy” he says.

When it finally deflates, he knows the fermentation is done.

Simple, yet seemingly effective.
