Message:  Dear Rabbi,

I had forwarded an email to you from Hennessy that their entire prodution from beginning to end is automated. Even though they can't guarantee it never comes in contact with humans. Should there be other concerns? Or would it be okay yo have?

Thank you,

Reply:  I went with my father and several others from winery to winery on the North Fork of Long Island. Everyone confirmed that in today's modern age no one ever touches or even pours it.

Sure enough at one of the top Wineries we met an old maven. He said "if anyone says they don't touch it, they're lying." He then showed us how & why they touch it.

If they don't commit in writing, I'm suspicious.
