Canned Wine vs. Bottled Wine: Debunking the Myths


When it comes to enjoying an exceptional glass of wine, tradition often dictates uncorking a bottle. However, there's a new player in town that's steadily gaining popularity - Vinca organic canned wine. Despite the formats rise to stardom, canned wine still faces its fair share of myths and misconceptions. We're here to debunk these myths and shed light on why Vinca canned wine is a game-changer worth embracing.

Myth #1: Sacrificing Quality for Convenience

One of the most prevalent misconceptions about canned wine in general is that it compromises on quality. In reality, canned wine undergoes the same stringent winemaking process as its bottled counterparts. Advanced packaging technology, like using specialist lined cans ensures that the wine's flavour, aroma, and freshness are impeccably preserved in a convenient and portable format. We've proved this by scooping up 3 medals against over 100 bottled wines in a recent blind tasting. 

Myth #2: Metallic Taste

Another common myth is that canned wine tastes metallic. Technology has come a long way in recent years, and here at Vinca, we embrace the technology and use special 'wine lined' cans. This is a water based barrier that coats the inside of the can, meaning our exceptional organic wine never, ever touches aluminium. 

Myth #3: Limited Shelf Life

Some skeptics argue that canned wine doesn't age well and has a shorter shelf life compared to bottled wine. However, cans are arguably a more stable environment to age wine. There is no light degradation from light coming through the glass. Unlike cork, it's completely air tight, meaning no oxygen gets in to start ageing the wine. This ensures that every sip is as fresh and delightful as the winemaker intended.

Myth #4: Environmental Concerns

Contrary to belief, canned wine is a sustainability champion. Aluminum cans are infinitely recyclable and have a much smaller carbon footprint compared to glass bottles. They are lighter, easier to store and get cold quicker. By choosing canned wine, eco-conscious consumers can enjoy their favourite libations guilt-free, knowing they're making an environmentally responsible choice.
