Drink up, you're saving the planet

CalNaturale has several good, convincing reasons why you should drink their wine – you are helping to save the planet, it requires no special tools to open and it tastes good.

The innovative Tetra Pak is made primarily from paper and that means it uses 92 percent less packaging, produces 80 percent less greenhouse gasses and the convenient screw cap closure keeps wine fresher because it keeps air and light out.

Here’s another factor to consider: CalNatural is the first and only California wine in these paks made from organically grown grapes.

The wine – a 2008 cabernet sauvignon is crafted from grapes grown in the Paso Robles Appellation. It is available in a 500ml (equivalent to 2/3 of a standard 750 ml bottle of wine that retails for around $7 and in a 3L pak for $13.)

A chardonnay is also available at local markets in the same two sizes.

But, back to what’s in the cute cabernet pouch…

The wine is a lovely deep garnet with aromas of chocolate and dark red fruit. Layers of plum, cassis and berry flavors and oak excite the palate.

Enjoy this with rich beef stew, grilled meats and smoky barbecue or with blue-veined cheeses.
