Canned beverages have always been something I have avoided. Cans tend to transfer a tin flavor to any beverage that they may contain. So, the thought of wine in a can seems pretty horrifying. I had heard that Australia’s Barokes ‘Wine in a Can‘ products have won a number of awards, but I was still a bit uneasy about wine in a can.
Barokes Wines use their patented Vinsafe wine packaging system that enables premium quality wine to be canned with stability and longevity. Wine in a can actually has quite a few perks. Canned wine is extremely convenient to transport. It is also much easier to dispose of a can than is to dispose of a bulky wine bottle. Canned wine can be extremely convenient when traveling, camping, fishing, boating, or just about any activity you can think of. Another thought would be that a can of wine allows you to consume small quantities in your own time. Perhaps you are having a nice dinner and would like some chardonnay, but you do not want to drink a whole bottle or do not want to store the bottle for an extended period of time. A can might be able to satisfy your needs.
If you are looking to find Barokes in the United States, you might find it to be a bit challenging. California is currently the main market for this product, but they are working on expanding quickly. Your best bet for obtaining some at this point is by going to NewWorldWineImports.com.
