This blog aims to make wine a little more approachable. Amateur winemaker, Ryan O'Donnell talks about winemaking techniques, tasting experiments, events, gadgets and more. This is Ryan's exploration of all things wine.
Yes, it's probably hard to imagine yourself drinking wine that doesn't come from a bottle. When boxed wines came out, they were (and still are) the butt of many jokes. Classic glass bottle = classy and traditional. But with stuff like the Sofia Mini enjoying some success or at least garnering interest from the young and chic set, maybe people are ready for something new. So here's the environmentally friendly wine label, French Rabbit. Their "vintage-dated wines, the first premium French wines in an eco-friendly Tetra Pak™ container, are sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards in the sunny Pays d’Oc region of Southern France."
According to the French Rabbit site, the container takes less energy to produce than a glass bottle, is 100% recyclable, weighs less so it can be shipped more efficiently, and you can also squeeze out air from the container so that the wine lasts longer. Pretty smart!
Have you ever made wine from grapes of kits?
