Single-Serve Wines for Summer Soirées
August 01, 2013 | by LIANA LOZADA | Food & Drink News
The Vini holds single-serving pours of some great California wines.
There is no longer a need to tote heavy bottles of wine to your next beach-side picnic or BYOB summer barbecue. Enter The Vini. These smartly-designed single-serving pours of California red and white wines are served in easily transportable tubes. The packages, a concept developed by Miami's own Sunny Fraser, are convenient but also maintain the quality of your preferred cabernet sauvignon or pinot grigio. An industry-trusted Stelvin screw cap protects the 187-milliliter servings for your next soiree.
The Vini's website currently retails four-pack varieties starting at $35.80 for the California white—a mix of Chardonnay from Napa and Sonoma with Viognier from Lodi. Individual tubes ($7.99 or $8.99) can be bought at several South Florida stores and restaurants, including Joe's Stone Crab Takeaway, The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, Happy Wine in the Grove, Rik Rak Salon Boutique Bar, Anacapri Italian Cuisine & Market, and Vintage Liquor & Wine Bar in Midtown. A full list of local and national vendors can be found online.
