These Stackable, Single-Serve Wine Packages Are the Legos of Alcoholism
The past couple years we’ve seen a welcome amount of new ways to consume wine that veture outside of the traditional top-heavy glass. We’ve seen them in cartons, pouches and even in single-serve plastic wine glasses with a peel-off lid reminiscent of a jello package. Today we make one more significant step forward with stackable, single-serve wine packs.
That’s right, a product of Stacked Wines, LLC, these portable, single-serve PET wine packages come with four interlocking, stackable stemless containers that are bundled in a shrink-sleeve label and uses “proprietary technology to provide up to a 14-month shelf life, a sophisticated drinking experience, and a supply chain-friendly footprint.”
The Stacked Wines company, based out of Newport Beach, CA, notable is offering three wine varieties out of the gate — all of which California-inspired: Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, and Merlot. They told PackWorld that they’re not aiming to be a novelty type product, instead they look to be simply improve the way premium wine can be packaged.
Inspiration for the product came asa result of company CEO Matt Zimmer when he dove into stale wine from a bottle that had been opened several nights earlier. Just over a year later, Zimmer, along with fellow MBA students from the University of California, Irvine had developed the proprietary STACKED technology.
What y’all think? Can you see yourself drinking wine out of pre-sealed, stackable packages? Or do you fall into the group of people who can’t open a bottle of wine and not finish it within of twenty minutes of its corkage?
