Wine in a can has become a staple at the bottle shop. They are great for one person and perfect for using in a recipe. Wine tinnies are good options for sitting by the pool, and adding to your backpack or camping trip. You don’t need a bottle opener or need to worry about breaking a glass bottle. These wines are also ideal for picnics or BBQs.
