Fancy Some Canned Wine?

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, along comes the introduction of canned wine.  Yes, that’s what I said.  Canned wine.  Taking the step of eliminating the cork and its potentially distasteful bacteria, a Buenos Aires, Argentinean company, Iron Wine, has gone a completely new route, introducing both red and white wines in 8-1/2 and 12 ounce cans (three of the 12 ouncers equal a standard bottle of wine, for those wondering).

The company maintains that the cans make perfect sense considering wine is aged in steel vats.  Although not available stateside quite yet, these make the perfect size for when a full bottle of wine is just too much.

Three of the 8.5 oz. cans make about one standard sized bottle.

Iron Wine will be available soon in the US. Send us an email with your location so we can work on getting there.
