Wine Vending Machines Coming to the US...

This can only go two ways... 1) be welcomed to the US and be a success -or- 2) become a disaster and spawn multiple chain-reactions of problems.
With today's world becoming more dispensable and fast paced, it was only a matter of time until we saw wine available in vending machines... Leave it to the French to come up with something like this, a real-life wine vending machine. French wine enthusiast Astrid Terzian came up with the idea of selling wine by the volume. All the customer has to do is bring their own container and 'Presto!' for your belly.
There is a bonus to all this - Pumping your wine from these machines reduces the amount of glass, cardboard and the carbon footprint it usually takes a supplier to bottle, box and ship your drink of choice.
Dispensed through pumps in amounts of 500- and 1,000-liters at local French supermarkets, all that would be required of customers is a container to fill up and a handful of change!
