i liked to put wine in empty soda cans way before it was popular.

Each can will hold about 8 ounces of wine,

So what makes up the other third of the contents of the 12 oz cans depicted?

I know some alchies who would drink that.

/but they really aren't alchies
//because it's only wine
///of course it's two bottles + a night
////but totally not alchies

can > bag > bottle

Seriously, glass bottles are the worst for keeping booze fresh and drinkable. They're also stupidly heavy, so they take more fuel to transport, and they're fragile, so there's a not-insignificant chance of losing product to breakage in transit. So, more fossil fuel burned to transport, plus covering costs of destroyed product = more CO2 and more $$$.

Aluminum is easily recyclable, light, durable, and keeps light and oxygen out of the product.

The grousing is going to come from snobs who refuse to accept that continuing to use glass to contain beverages is a stupid idea. Beer, wine, liquor, whatever. It's obsolete technology, but since all the newer stuff still carries a stigma of being only for low-quality swill, it keeps getting used.

tl;dr: It's what's inside the container that makes it swill, not the container itself.

Bottles are however far preferable for use as a blunt instrument once your fancy wine tasting event breaks down into it's inevitable drunken brawl.  Well, at least if yours go anything like mine.

Those bags are oxygen permeable. Granted it takes a long time, but if you're going to age it for over a year, glass works much better.

This isn't all that new. As teens, we used to buy six packs of canned wine from the Dixie Pak-a-Sak back in the early 80s and never got carded. Probably because the old guy at the counter had no idea there was alcohol in what looked like a soda can.

/Oh yeah, that canned wine was absolutely vile.

At the liqour store I found champange (sparkling wine) in a can. It is called Sophia and it is from Francis Ford Coppola winery and it comes with a bendy straw. It is classy we drank it for my roomates birthday
 
2013-11-15 05:48:58 PM
Boddingtons comes in a can. And it is good.

So does Coors. And it is not.

So, I'd imagine that wine in a can can be good, or not.

People really shouldn't drink beer from a can unless it is cheap shiat / has bad or no flavor. Drinking from a glass lets you take in the aroma with your nose.

The same should apply to canned wine.

The only people I've seen drinking wine directly from a bottle are teens and street alkies, though I don't know what some of you do in the privacy of your homes. Maybe you can afford to chug the good stuff from glass bottles or you drink box wine straight from the nipple.

For some reason, "canned X" implies it's in a Cambell's soup style cans. Where as "X in a can" infers pop-top status.

lately, i've been toting a box wine in a back pack (with the spout accessible through a cleverly placed hole).

Desperation and self-loathing.

Just kidding.  I have no problem with this but I'm not a wine head.  Can any wine people clue me in: How is this much different than bottling, assuming the cans are lined so aluminum doesn't leach into the wine?

Heh. Same here. Though in my case it was brightly-colored wine coolers in plastic 2-liter's that looked very much like soda.  Drank a LOT of that syrupy shiat in high school.

I was thinking of the great big cans ketchup comes in lol.

Imagine the Costco-sized cans of wine! Great big 10 gallon drum...

Load 2 of those onto your flatbed cart and you'd have 3 or 4 women giving you phone numbers... or asking where the party was. :D

I like this idea mainly for cooking. There are times a recipe calls for a cup or less of wine to make a sauce and I hate having to open a bottle. I don't always want to drink the wine but I am FORCED to drink the rest of the bottle in these circumstances. It is not fair to my liver.

There is zero great wine in "new" containers. Can great wine be delivered other than in bottles? It hasn't been yet but that doesn't mean anything. Just one example, not in a demo but in the market, and I'll consider it.
 
2013-11-15 07:30:02 PM
Drinking this now. It's nothing fancy, but it's cheap and pretty good. If it came in a can, I'd buy it if it was the same price as the box.
