Thinking Outside The Box

In an attempt to make wine drinking more environmentally friendly, California based vineyard, Indulge Wines, has created the 'Astapouch'. The Astrapouch, which is basically a wine bag, comes in a 1.5L size, equivalent to 2 regular bottles of wine. This packaging uses much less materials than boxed wines, and is able to keep it's contents fresh for up to 30 days after opening, which contributes to significantly reducing it's carbon footprint. Available in a 2009 Sauvignon Blanc, and a 2009 Pinot Noir whichever you prefer will set you back about $20(US) +S/H. I check the BCLD site and it turned up nothing, so I guess we Canadians will have to make do with the upcoming video for the time being.
