The Lowdown on Canned Wine

On your hunt for the best bottle of wine and food recipes to complement it, you may stumble across canned wine. It’s not a typo; wine really does come in cans these days. But does it live up to the hype? Here’s everything you need to know about canned wine to make an informed decision.

It’s Been Around for a Long Time

You may not have seen canned wine before, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been around for a long time. You just needed to know where to look. Sparkling wine came in cans as long ago as 2004, and they have been growing in popularity ever since.

A quick trip to your local bottle store may see you armed with a box of canned wine for home or event consumption.

It Chills Faster

One of the most frustrating things about drinking wine in Australia is how quickly it warms up. Our summer temperatures can be scorching, which means drinks don’t stay cold for long.

If you buy wine in a can, you can put it inside a beer cooler and drink it outside with far more confidence. What’s more, cans cool down quicker in the fridge than thick glass wine bottles do.
