Move over glass bottles, it’s all about canned wines

With summer officially here, it’s time to enjoy the great outdoors with family and friends now that lockdown restriction are being lifted. Think picnics in the park and beach days. All those outdoor activities we know and love are back and we’ve got the perfect companion to take along with you.

Introducing our favourite wines, now in handy cans. Canned wines are here to stay – a new trend that’s showing no sign of slowing down. Far from being just a fad, these versatile cans offer a great way to enjoy delicious wines at a moment’s notice.

Reasons why we love canned wine…

  • Canned wine is convenient. We’ve all had those moments when we’ve over packed for our picnic in the park, lugging heavy bottles around. Cans are light and fit snugly in your cool bag, and with no corkscrew or glass required, you can sip straight from the can.
  • They’re quick to chill: pop a can in the fridge and it’s cold in no time. Cans are air-tight too, keeping your wine fresh and delicious.
  • Cans are perfect for those who live solo or for the moments when you just fancy a glass of wine and don’t want to open a whole bottle.
  • They’re super recyclable. After your days out, take home your empties, drop them in the recycling … simple, clean and green.
