Photo du Jour - Wine in a Can?

Forget your Coke, Pepsi, Mountain Dew or Fresca.
Who needs Coors, Fosters or Heinekin.
Now there's WINE IN A CAN!

Yes, good ol' vin de pays d'oc red or rosé. In a can. Only 85 euro cents each. Pin It

Francis Ford Coppola lives on a vineyard which is now producing cans of wine, he even named one Sofia in honour of his very talented and amazing daughter. I haven't tried it yet though, something about wine in a can is just so unglamorous.

Tom Aarons said...

Really? I didn't know!
So, they've been making wine in a can for a while?
Yes, something about slurping wine out of a can...yikes. I guess you could pour it into a glass. Still...just doesn't work for me.


The woman at the shop was very enthusiastic about it. But I'm not so sure. Might buy a couple as joke gifts for friends in the States when I go in February. :)

They are 18.7 cl, so about 6.3 ounces.
The idea of wine in a can is amusing and I'm sure there are those who will be happy to get their wine from a can.
Wine is just a part of every day life...I was in the hospital in Narbonne after breaking my arm. After waking up from major surgery, still on a morphine drip, they asked me if I wanted wine or beer with my lunch. I protested and pointed to the drip and the nurse said, "it's ok, it's only a small bottle." So, of course I asked for some red.
Viva la France!

85 cents a can? Yikes!

I know! I can get a liter for 1€ so that seems rather expensive.
