So it crossed my mind. Is there any wine on earth that is canned? Say, like the micro brewery beers that are starting to use cans. If not.There is wine in the box. Wine out of the can. Why not?

    Well, there have been many packaging variations over the last few years, and if you are looking for single-serving wines in a box, or similar, the Sophia comes to mind. I was, well just say, less than blown away, but maybe that was just me.

    Good luck,

      AFIK Bill's right about Sofia. It's the only one I've ever seen in the US. I DO recall wine (possibly only Sake) being available in cans in Japan. It was sold in vending machines at Narita airport.

        I was almost sure I remembered some Aussies trying it quite a while back.
