We’ve Seen Wine In A Box, But In A Can?

By Luke Anderson

When I was younger, I always wondered what wine tasted like. Once I even snuck a sip of a bottle in my parents’ house, only to find it was one of the most awful things I’d ever tasted. When I was of age, one of my uncles, who has an appreciation for fine wine (unlike my parents who bought only the cheap stuff) let me taste a few of his favorite bottles. As it turns out, the โ€œbetterโ€ a wine is, the worse it tastes. For those of you that actually enjoy the taste of wine, could you ever picture yourself drinking it out of a can?

There’s just something about the mental image of a rich socialite holding a can of wine, drinking it with pinky stuck out that makes me laugh a bit. A pair of Swedish designers created a concept recyclable wine cans that no one seems to want to put their wine in. Perhaps it’s that people like to have a resealable bottle, or that they enjoy sniffing their wine out of a large glass. Or maybe it’s the fact that it’ll seem too much like drinking a beer that makes no one want it.

  1. The idea isn’t new. I’ve tried drinking canned wine in the Netherlands last year – in normal aluminium cans like they use for Red Bull and suchlike. Didn’t really taste all that great, the Merlot I had from a 0.2l foil package (like they use for softdrinks) was much better ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. A pull-tab? Blasphemy! Whatever happened to the nice traditional screw-caps? ๐Ÿ™‚ Heh, at least it isn’t one of those self-heating cans…

    Meh, wine. Can’t stand that stuff either. Beer too, if you can believe it. On the other hand, I really enjoy (non-alcoholic) sweet-fermented rice milk that some people compared to the taste of cardboard, so I think I better be quiet.
