Wine in a pouch
Clif Family Winery, St. Helena, Calif., introduced the Climber Pouch, a new wine package that is portable. The ultra-light design is shatterproof and flexible, making it a natural choice for transporting outdoors, the company says. One Climber Pouch holds the equivalent of two 750 ml. bottles and its resealable, one-way plastic spout keeps opened wine fresh for up to a month in the refrigerator, the company says. Climber Pouch wines include an unoaked Chardonnay sourced from Northern California’s cooler Delta region and a Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards along California’s Central Coast. Clif Family Winery Climber Pouch wines are available in California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Texas, North Carolina, Florida, New York, Vermont, Ohio, South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee. Suggested retail price for a 1.5-liter pouch is $16.99.
