Why Aluminum Cans? Aluminum not only protects our wine from oxygen and light, we chose 250mL cans because they are smaller, lighter, and more recyclable than glass - the perfect fit for one of our core principles: Nurture - someone who supports the health of their environment by lowering their carbon footprint and choosing to buy local when possible.
Also, we love that they combine convenience and portability in a single serving!
The carriers on our new 4-Packs are 100% recycled material, and are also 100% recyclable.

The Mint in Muscat + Mint:
The fresh mint in our Muscat + Mint comes from Riverview Herbs in Nova Scotia. The mint is added to the wine as an infusion. Infusion is a process often called steeping; the flavours from the mint are introduced by suspending the leaves in the wine over time ~ much like the way you make a fresh pot of tea!
Incredibly economical ~ our 250ml cans are equal to an 8oz glass of wine which is also 1/3 of a 750ml bottle of wine.
Occasionally you may discover what look like little crystals in the bottom of the can. What you’ve discovered are typically referred to as wine crystals or wine diamonds. They are a natural occurrence in all wines and there are various possible reasons for their occurrence in a bottle or can of wine. As one example, if the wine was exposed to colder than normal temperatures (e.g. a bar-fridge or chiller) it can throw these crystals. Ideally, we prefer to have this process happen before it is canned, but occasionally it happens afterwards. The formation of wine crystals is less common in red wines, as their level of tartaric acid is lower, and crystals tend to fall out naturally during the longer aging process.
Their scientific name is tartrates and they are simply potassium bitartrate, which is the same thing as cream of tartar used in cooking. They are a very common, naturally occurring and not the least bit dangerous.
You can feel comfortable and confident in buying our wine—with or without wine diamonds the quality of the wine is not affected by this natural process.
Why we say diamonds are a wine drinker’s best friend! Some folks think they are good luck, but we know wine diamonds can actually be considered a sign of quality and evidence of a wine that has had minimal intervention and less processing.
