The wine reportedly spent almost a year in orbit. They were brought to the ISS as part of an experiment by the French

a company that decided to investigate how an alcoholic beverage matures in microgravity.

Part of the harvest was left on Earth, and part was transferred to the ISS. Upon arrival, the bottles will be opened and tasting arranged to compare earth and space specimens.
