Why Canned Wine?

As if you need an excuse to try canned wine this summer, we have six:

  1. First and foremost: they’re tasty! Canned wines tick all the boxes for a thirst quenching, crisp and tasty beverage. Wines range in style from sparkling roses to earthy reds.
  2. Canned wine is portable, light-weight, and durable, making it great for taking outdoors or to the pool.
  3. Cans can be chilled quickly and their compact size makes them easy to store.
  4. No winetool needed. Need we say more?
  5. Cans require fewer materials and fuel to transport. Plus, just like bottles, cans can be recycled!
  6. Canned wine offers an affordable, smaller serving wine option without compromising quality.

How Do You Serve Canned Wine?

Go ahead and serve it straight from the can! But keep in mind, certain aromas are more noticeable and complex after the wine is poured into a glass.

Taking your wine outside? Try an insulated, glass-free container like a Brümate Tumbler.
