Title: Wine in a can
Post by Jimmy on May 26th, 2004 at 12:05am
There is a winery here in Australia that has just brought out a premium range of wines in cans, the cans have a coating so the wine doesnt come in contact with metal.
Im a bit of a stickler when it come to wine and believe it should come in a bottle or cask it would be interesting to find out if anyone thinks this is a good idea and whether a: it would be successful and b: would they buy and drink it, i think the cans are about 350ml

As long as the cans are coated, which they are, the wine should be perfectly safe. However, I have doubts that this will catch on.

Beer is sold in cans and sales are large, but cannot see the same people buying wine in cans.  :). And the people that buy wine, I cannot see them buying cans.

Strange decision, but would like to see it do well.

Most tinned  fruits, are in cans plastic coated on the inside, to stop the friut acid attacking the tinning, some manufacturers, just use clear passivated zinc plating on their tins, they MUST, be plastic coated, as it breaks down easier than tinning, which is a more expensive process. :o.

Wine bottles are 750 ml. The can would be half that-two glasses- about what I limit myself to. With the can you dont get cork tainting problems.  You lose some of the boquet should you drink directly from the can.  Paul S

I mentioned this in another forum I follow and was told there has been wine in cans here in the UK for some time.  I've never seen them but it just seems wrong.  :)

Anyone tried them?

Not tried them, but seen them, see nothing wrong , it's progress, remember, beer used to be sold in bottles!!, you are buying it for the content, at the end of the day, it does'nt matter what the wrapping is, so long as the content is good. ;). What about plastic bottles ?
F.T.
and I remember beer before cans ,50 yrs ago !!

I still buy most of my beer in bottles!  Not that I mind beer in tins.

I can't get my head around wine in a tin though.  I like the tradition of the bottle, removing the cork, the atmosphere of it all.  Plus I like the idea of natural products being used in the packaging so plastic coated tins don't do anything for me.  However I can see that it is probably all down to perception.

I don't think tinned wine will ever overtake bottled in the sales charts but who knows.  Knowing me I'll buy one next time I'm out to see what they're like!  :)

Hi cris here. New in this forum. Well for me that would be different, i mean unique. Wine in a can? Excellent idea! I think it'll be also safe to drink it even if it's not in the bottle or it depends on how the Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register is.

It appears to be an attempt a spamming, and perhaps inserting a dodgy link, which isn't supposed to be possible in the first few posts, so more may follow.

We get wine in plastic cartons so I see nothing wrong with tins.  Great for picnics (this is a function we Brits perform with great gusto, four times a year on Bank Holidays, come rain or shine!) or fishing expeditions! ;D ;D ;D

Yes, whenever I get my quarterly mailing from Tesco Wine Club with vouchers for money off French/Spanish/ Australian/Whatever wine PLUS another for XXX points if you buy any wine, I go and buy one of those cheap, tiny tins of wine and make a tidy profit on it.

That reminds me!  I've not had my vouchers yet!  Has anybody else? >:(

Last time I was staying down at Praa Sands I started fishing again after a gap of some 20 years and made a point of putting some wine in my keep net to go with the picnic , metal cans would be good I think .
