Canned wine is certainly not the first thing that comes to mind when we're thinking of vino for our next party. However, as some old-school beer consumers are jumping into the wine boat and younger consumers are becoming more open to alternative packaging, it’s time to forget about cork openers for a bit. Nowadays, canned wines come in very high quality and many varieties, including Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. So, if you're looking for something to pair with your next grill under the sun, at Empire Wines, we've got your back.
Over recent centuries, wine has always been packed in 750ml bottles with a cork closure that prevents spoilage, and it’s challenging to think of any other product with such a traditional packaging. Canned wine is packed in aluminum containers lined with a water-based polymer, and comes in various sizes, from 250ml to 375ml and 500ml. Like soda or beer, wine in a can does not have any metallic flavor and can offer all the fruitiness and freshness of any given bottle. There are also some great advantages for the consumer and the environment when opting for cans over glass bottles.
