At Union Wine, they like to have fun and have produced their favorite wines in cans to take along anywhere.  The motto of the company “it’s more important what goes into the glass than what type of glass it is” and keeping things fun. The team loved the idea of being on the river or camping with a six-pack of wine.

Ryan’s answers to a couple of questions:

WHY WINE IN A CAN?

Simply put - Because we can.  Actually, the cans were first released in a limited edition at the 2013 Feast Portland event through a Pinkies Down campaign to share our belief that there is too much fussiness around wine.  At the event, in addition to the cans, we introduced the Union Wine Co. Tasting Truck, a re-purposed vintage French Citroën H Van where we served from.  Based on the success of that weekend, we decided to put it into production.

HOW MANY “GLASSES” OF WINE ARE IN A SINGLE UNDERWOOD PINOT IN A CAN?

Roughly two. It’s a half bottle’s worth. Enough to share… or not.

IS THE UNDERWOOD PINOT IN A CAN THE SAME WINE FOUND IN THE BOTTLES?

Yes, it is the exact same.

WHERE CAN I BUY/ORDER UNDERWOOD PINOT IN A CAN?

Underwood Pinot in a can will be landing on shelves in selected regions around June 1st. Those locations are: Oregon (obviously), along with California (SF, LA and San Diego), Delaware, Hawaii (limited this time), Illinois (Chicago mostly), Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Virginia and Washington DC. The amount of interest in wine in a can took us by surprise, and we are working hard to get the next batch created, but craft wines take some time. We will continue to expand as we make more, so look for more regions to carry the cans soon, or check out our new online store
