Friday's Unscientific Poll: Wine in a can: Y/N? [20170929|09:15]

Maybe I just don't get out enough (or maybe this is a USian thing), but one of my friends pointed out these single-serving wines to me on our trip to Huntington Gardens when I was in California. I...did not must up the courage to try either the rose or the sauvignon blanc. Also, it was scorching that day and all anybody wanted was water until it started to cool off around 5 PM, and then we went hunting for beer (see: Brits in hot weather).

Poll #2073086 Wine in a can

So...wine in a can?

What fresh hell is this?
Sure, why not.

lol I want to check What fresh hell so badly!! But, although I have not yet tried any, I have heard very favorable reviews regarding wine in cans. Also, some of those boxed wines get high marks. I just picked up some red wine (rare for me these days due to sulfates and migraines) and it's HORRID. It's in a bottle with a cool design and the description of its notes is lovely. And it's all lies! lol It was cheap at 12 bucks, but there are 5-dollar wines that taste better. That 3-dollar Trader Joe's wine is better! I cannot drink this stuff, so I'm contemplating making a meat dish for friends with the wine in a crockpot.

So yeah, I'd try the canned kind. After I researched which brand is best!

Oh, how disappointing! Bleargh! I'm sorry your rare treat turned out to be such a dud. Um....maybe it'll make a nice chilli or stew? :P

I don't object to wines that don't need aging being served in cans, in principle, as they're chilled and served straightaway. I think I'd still want to pour it into a different receptacle, though, rather than drinking straight from the can.
