Canned Wine is the New Boxed Wine


Break out the beer koozies and classy pants, because you can now drink your fancy wine out of a can, thanks to Oregon-based Union Wine Company.

While the company actually saves money on packaging and uses less materials, the decision was made with the intention of revamping the wine experience.  We can only begin to imagine the possibilities.  No more worrying about spilling your glass as you lean back on the couch or  pesky half-opened bottles and lost cork dilemmas.

Each can will hold about 8 ounces of wine, which is about two servings. No word yet on how the canning process will actually affect the taste, but we are definitely excited to give this a try.

Nora Landis-Shack was born to be a foodie. With a classically trained French chef for a father, she’s been exploring new tastes since she was big enough to help chop vegetables for dinner. Pig’s feet, frog’s legs, and tripe are delicious child’s play. Which isn’t to say she doesn’t love a great steak. Because she does. With frites, please.

    8 oz is 1/2 serving, not 2.

      The can pictured says 12 ounces, so the reporting is really failing us here.

  • George Babbitt

    A serving of a glass of wine is 5 ounces. The can pictured says 12 ounces. The article says the can holds 8 ounces and that it is equal to two servings.

    All they need to start doing now is Whiskey in a can; 12oz of straight bourbon goodness. Can I get a six pack of whiskey in a can to go?

    Wasn’t this an episode of “It’s always sunny in Philadelphia?”

    Coppola has had a canned wine for a while now.

    Nothing new about this. I remember drinking canned sangria in Spain about 30 years ago.

    • Simon Champion

      If you went to spain and drank canned sangria then you fail as a tourist :p

        I wasn’t a tourist, I was in the Air Force on my way to a deployment in Turkey. I just tried it for the novelty, as I had never seen anything like that before. Turns out it came in handy — today.

        • Simon Champion

          OK that’s understandable. How did it compare?

          • LoneRangler

            Tasted fine to me. Better than Pepsi.

  • One Concerned Citizen

    I cut my nose trying to sniff the cork.

  • The Vulgar Chef

    if I can get a drinkable can of fine cheese to go with a cheap can of wine I’m sold.
