"Wine" tasting

I put wine in quotes, because I'm still not sure how I feel about this place. So I purchased a couple of seats at a tasting here in town. This place is called Water 2 Wine and I would describe it as a high tech winery. They receive the grape mash (not sure what it's called at this stage) in these big silver bags. Then they have all these carboys with different wine fermenting. Now this is where it gets weird. To oak the wine, they add wood shaving to the fermenting mash. After the wine has fermented for however many days is required, it's strained/bottled/labeled. We sampled a few of these wines and they weren't too bad, but I just felt kind of cheated. They stressed that their wines are pure, free of preservatives, blah blah blah. They even sell these magnets that are supposed to age your wine in 30 minutes. It was all just kind of weird really. I received a bottle with my two tickets and bought one additional bottle. I still haven't cracked them open, but they did state that their wine was not for long term aging.

Have any of you guys ever experienced anything like this?
