Last night while at a benefit for Global Green, one winery asked me to think outside the box. Now I want you to do the same: Allow me to introduce California's premium wine tube. It's not wine in a box, it's wine in a tube! Four Wines has created the first high-quality, alternative-packaged wine. While I was skeptical, the wine's spicy start, nice body, and layered fruity flavors impressed me — it was actually good and delightfully drinkable. Even super-taster FabSugar (whose picky about her wine) enjoyed a glass.
Perfect for entertaining a large crowd, the $40 tube holds 24 glasses of wine (about four bottles) that stays fresh up to four weeks after opening. The grapes are sourced from Paso Robles, Monterey, and Lodi, CA. The elimination of glass, corks, and foils reduce the wine's carbon footprint by 50 percent, making the wine tube an excellent choice for the eco-conscious wine drinker.
So what do you think about this green-friendly wine? Would you drink wine from a tube?
