With apologies to Neil Diamond ...


For wine lovers who are serious about the conditions of their nectar, a digital thermometer about the size of a sugar packet now is available to keep track of bottles' individual temperatures.

In fact, the device will allow consumers to tell whether the bottle fell outside its ideal temperature after shipping from the vineyard. If the status is OK, an embedded light will blink green. If there is a problem, it will blink yellow. And, since this is a digital recorder, you will be able to download the information to a computer spreadsheet.

The device is made by PakSense Inc. of Boise, ID. It sells for $1.60 per unit.
