It’s also a very economical way to entertain guests this Super Sunday. The 1.5L is equivalent to two 750 ml bottles is a take-away from Trader Joe’s for $9.99.
There are several other reasons to open the pouch instead of glass bottles: 80 percent less carbon footprint than glass, 90 percent less waste and landfill, lighter than glass to carry, quicker chilling time in the refrigerator and the air tight tap stays fresh for up to one month after opening.
Saving the planet is noble – Eco Vino sources the grapes for the wine from organic producers in Mendocino County – but the majority of wine drinkers want good taste.
The pale straw color introduces the nose to aromas of white flowers and pear. Acidity is present after opening but flavors of honey, mango and vanilla emerge after the wine has been allowed to get some air.
Rich, red meat selections such as ribs and spicy chicken wings will overpower this light wine. So, cold chicken salad or lightly-dressed pasta are better matches.
