Item Description

" Vinification: hand harvested. No external yeast & no enzymes are employed during the winemaking process. The bunches are de-stemmed & the fruit undergoes fifteen days of maceration & the wine is stored in enamel-lined tanks. The wine is bagged & boxed on demand.

Tasting Note: Garnet in the glass with shimmering highlights. Elegant notes of smoky red fruit, violet, sweet herb & a note of baking chocolate.
The palate is rich with ripe cherry & berry flavors, & a mineral note that is followed by supple acidity & velvety tannins. This is a very expressive red with a great concentration of fruit & yet it is never overly extracted. The wine finishes with floral notes & a dash of black pepper.

From the Tank was born out of the collaboration between Francois Ecot of Jenny & Francois Selections & Denis Deschamps of Les Vignerons D Estazargues fame. They decided on a blend for the three-liter bag-in-box that would be the exact same quality as what Jenny & Francois bring to the US in bottles. Each year, the From the Tank wine fountain is a special blend made just for Jenny & Francois Selections.
Great for serving by the glass, for parties, picnics, or for people who want only a glass of wine a day. The conservation is much longer then bottles once they are opened & it is light to carry. The box also has a much smaller carbon footprint than bottles because it is so light to ship. " ~ Winery notes

From the Tank

View all from From the Tank
"From the Tank®" was born out of the old school idea of going to the local winery with a big empty jug to fill up with easy-drinking juice. This is a tradition that stretches back for ages in France.

When we created "From the Tank®" , we were determined to source the highest possible quality grapes, grown organically and hand-harvested, made only with indigenous yeasts and lightly sulfured, just like all the other wines we work with. What we created remains to this day unique in the marketplace of wine. A wine that tastes very natural, that can be purchased at retail for the equivalent of $8-$10 per 750ml bottle, in packaging that reduces green-house emissions, and is easier to transport and serve than traditional glass bottles.

3-Liter bag-in-box is the most carbon efficient wine package & produces the least waste – with a 55% lower carbon footprint than traditional glass bottles in terms of energy needed for glass production and transportation, and 85% less landfill waste. Paperboard is easily recycled.

Lighter weight means reduced fossil fuel emissions.

The lightweight makes "From the Tank®" perfect for a picnic, a party, or simply to carry home and put in the refrigerator.

Bag-in-boxes last up to one month once opened, if stored in the refrigerator.

The vacuum-sealed pack inside the box keeps the wine fresh, so that you can drink a glass a night and avoid the waste that would come from a traditional bottle (ie regular glass bottles go bad in a few days).

Economical.

Ecological.

Delicious.
