Spanish Abstract: Este ensayo se basa en un discurso magistral pronunciado en el Congreso de Justicia Terapeutica de Puebla, Mexico, en diciembre de 2014. El mismo, utiliza la metafora del vino y las botellas como metodo para revisar los codigos y procesos penales. Esto, con el proposito de averiguar que cantidad de practicas y tecnicas de la justicia terapeutica("TJ") -- el "vino" -- pueden ser usadas en las estructuras juridicas actuales (las "botellas"). La meta de este proceso es averiguar como se puede usar mas vino en los esquemas juridicos actuales. Ademas, otro proposito de este analisis es ver si algunas estructuras juridicas deben ser reformadas, creando nuevas botellas. El ensayo plantea a su vez el metodo a ser utilizado en un proyecto internacional e interdisciplinario, con el fin de promocionar el uso de TJ en el sistema juridico penal y juvenil.

English Abstract: This essay, which will serve as a principal lecture at the Congress of Therapeutic Jurisprudence to be held in Puebla Mexico in December, 2014, is a Spanish language version, with some modifications, of an essay entitled New Wine in New Bottles, which uses the wine/bottle metaphor as a methodology to examine codes of criminal law and procedure -- the legal structure or "bottles" -- to see how well practices and techniques of therapeutic jurisprudence (the "wine") can fit in the bottles. If the fit is a good one, the next step would be to see how we can actually pour more wine into the existing bottles. If the bottles are not "friendly" to therapeutic jurisprudence (TJ), thought should be given to whether and how the law itself should be changed to enable the law and its administration to be more therapeutic. This methodology is being used in an international and interdisciplinary project to "mainstream" TJ in criminal and juvenile courts.
