Produced by Newy locals, Fourth Wave Wines
Disclosure: I am certainly no wine expert: red, white, bubbles, I'm not usually bothered, and a $5 bottle is always a win.
Wine is often referred to as "an acquired taste". It was a taste I forced myself to become acquired to when I was younger. Damn it I wanted to be all adult and classy and drink sophisticated wine from a glass like a lady. Forget that goon crap.
Now I love having a glass of wine at night while cooking dinner, or a few too many with friends.
But what if you only want one or two glasses of wine and not the entire bottle?
What if you are travelling a distance and the probability of the wine bottle breaking is high?
What if the wine bottle just isn't making the cut for your Instagram story?
Enter wine in a can.
I gathered a group of friends to give this weird concept a go and to get their thoughts. With a hesitant look they all took their first sip…" hmmm surprisingly nice" was the consensus. Ok, so I was going to have to get more out of them than that!
Based in Kotara, Fourth Wave Wines are the producers behind these seven varieties of wine in a can. They are a family-owned business…that launched in 2009, and make wine in six different countries that are distributed globally.
With our current fast-paced lifestyle, the popularity of a more casual dining experience, and a demand for quality over quantity the concept for the wine in the can was a no-brainer.
But don't be deceived by this small compact can, it is 250ml and equivalent to 2.7 standard drinks!
And while it is advised to pour the wine into a glass the special Vinsafe Patented liner ensures the wine has no contact with the can - indeed the can is a perfectly inert environment perfect for storing wine and serving it just as intended.
So, would I buy wine in a can again? I sure would, and seriously, look how cool they look, there is nothing unclassy about it in my opinion!
Cheers to Scotties for the awesome backdrop!
