Try This: Wine Tasting Different Container Formats

Today’s wine world has become so much more fun to explore, so why not explore something new that I bet you haven't tried before?

It’s Thanksgiving week and since many of us will not be gathering in large groups, it just might be the right time to try this. This is a fun wine tasting experiment that you can do at home by yourselves or with close like-minded friends (social distancing of course).

Set up your own wine tasting with wine from many different container formats and compare flavors. You may not like them all, however, it's worth a try to see if you can tell a difference. Especially since so many wineries (including many more upscale brands) are using or experimenting with new ways for wine delivery.

It can be personal or a little “parlor” game to try canned wine, alongside boxed wine, or tetra packed. Here’s an article courtesy of Food and Wine Magazine (https://www.foodandwine.com/wine/can-bottle-wine- taste-test-survey) that gives some insight between bottles and cans.

However, we know you need to check this out for yourself. Record your results and compare with friends and family on Zoom.

With box wine, you don't need to use a preserver if the interior bag compresses as the wine is poured. For canned wine or even tetra pack wine:

You have preserved your wine until the next time you want a glass (it’s a long weekend, so enjoy it).

Happy Thanksgiving!

Although March is just beginning, consider this to be the start of the homestretch leading to better weather (especially for us northerners). To help, we’d like to suggest a reasonable, yet fun entertainment opportunity that involves both wine and movies!

Comfortably and economically enjoy large format bottles of wine. Using a 100% argon wine preserver enables you to save the remaining wine and enjoy a fresh tasting glass again and again.
