It's ok to drink canned wine

I’m puzzled by this no can do attitude with wine drinkers. We drink beer from a can, soda from a can, and juice from a can. Wine? Not so much.

Repeat after me: “I think I can. I think I can.”

I did a little research on the subject. Keep in mind, we aren’t talking about Harlan Estate or Opus One in a can. There are some very good wines available.

I did a side-by-side tasting with a bottle of Butter chardonnay and a can of Butter chardonnay. After a moment in a glass, the difference was undetectable.

Three 250 ml cans make up one bottle of wine. The can gives you the option of having a glass of chardonnay without opening a full bottle. Cans are convenient for picnics, camping or outdoor concerts where you can pack a cooler. You won’t need a corkscrew or a glass.

Don’t be afraid to give it a try. You’ll be surprised.

One 250 ml can serves up two flutes of bubbles. A nice option while preparing dinner. The $5.99 bubbles from Essentially Geared Wine Co. were the best option I found for sparkling. Yes we can!
