An apparatus and method for modifying the organoleptic properties of a beverage, such as wine in a bottle, said apparatus having a least one light-source, said light-source applying peak wavelengths at intensities and time durations optimal for modifying said beverage's organoleptic properties with a highly reflective inner surface, a translucent air flow baffle, a translucent liquid barrier, and a controlled oxygen concentration in the bottle headspace.
1. An apparatus for light-processing a liquid comprising: a light chamber having a light source having peak wavelengths longer than 350 nm and no peak wavelengths shorter than 350 nm, wherein the chamber is shaped for receiving and enclosing a bottle containing the liquid and headspace above the liquid, wherein the liquid in the bottle is exposed to the ultraviolet light with a controlled oxygen concentration in the headspace. 2. The apparatus of claim 1 wherein the inner surface is comprised of a highly reflective material. 3. The apparatus of claim 2 w...
