Forget Wine in a Box, It's Time For Wine in a Can

Forget Wine in a Box, It's Time For Wine in a Can

By now, we're all familiar with box wine, screw top wine, and regular wine, but have you heard of canned wine?

Well, if Argentinean company Iron Wine has their way, you will soon. The Buenos Aires based company has just released two wines — a chenin blanc and a malbec and cabernet blend — in either eight and half or twelve ounce cans. The cans look just like soda cans, and the company defends their packaging by saying that they are perfect since they effectively block out light and air. Unfortunately the Associated Press is reporting that the wine is not yet available in the US, but I plan on trying it as soon as it is.

Burgundy Wine lies at the very heart of France, and is one of the world’s finest wine producing regions. Located two hours to the southeast of Paris, the wine area starts in Chablis in the north of the region and then it follows the autoroute A6 southerly to Lyon. The Burgundy soil is mainly based on oolitic limestone, upon which both the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes flourish. The red wines, made with the Pinot Noir, are more difficult to grow because these grapes are more sensitive to disease or to being badly handled. Towards the south of the region, from around Macon, the soil changes to a reddish granite schist and sand of the Beaujolais. Here, the Gamay grape flourishes, making excellent red wines, many of which are drunk while they are young. If you have not been to Burgundy, try it. It is a great part of France to visit for a holiday. Alternatively, stay at home and simply drink and enjoy the wine.

I covered this back in 2005 and the company keeps telling me "it's coming." I guess it's making the rounds again as a novel idea. http://martini-lounge.blogspot.com/2005/12/wine-in-can.html

The only time i would drink this is if i was say- tailgating, or at a bonfire or something. It would be super convienet for those occasions since i don't normally drink beer or hard liqor. otherwise- i like my win glasses! i have had wine in a "juice box" though... can't remember the brand.

I definitely think its an interesting idea but as everyone has suggested I think the taste will be altered too much by the metal that it won't fly with most wine lovers.

Noo! It totally takes the elegance of sipping wine from a glass away. A 6-pack of wine just sounds wrong.

i guess it would be convenient to have a few on hand if you suddenly had company and didn't have a lot of room for huge bottles?! yeah...no...can't think of a reason why you'd want this especially if you have to put it in a glass so you don't taste metal.

This is such a great idea! Some of the worlds best wine is made in Argentina. The majority of the wine is consumed in Argentina, rather than exported.

I definitely wonder how the metal effects the taste....maybe if they put it in something like a beer bottle it would be better.

Wouldn't the metal interfere with the taste of the wine, especially when it is been poured?
