“From the Tank®” was born out of the old school idea of going to the local winery with a big empty jug to fill up with easy-drinking juice. This is a tradition that stretches back for ages in France.
When we created “From the Tank®” , we were determined to source the highest possible quality grapes, grown organically and hand-harvested, made only with indigenous yeasts and lightly sulfured, just like all the other wines we work with. What we created remains to this day unique in the marketplace of wine. A wine that tastes very natural, that can be purchased at retail for the equivalent of $8-$10 per 750ml bottle, in packaging that reduces green-house emissions, and is easier to transport and serve than traditional glass bottles.
3 Liter bag-in-box is the most carbon efficient wine package & produces the least waste – with a 55% lower carbon footprint than traditional glass bottles in terms of energy needed for glass production and transportation, and 85% less landfill waste. Paperboard is easily recycled.
Lighter weight means reduced fossil fuel emissions.
The light weight makes “From the Tank®” perfect for a picnic, a party, or simply to carry home and put in the refrigerator.
Bag-in-boxes last up to one month once opened, if stored in the refrigerator.
The vacuum sealed pack inside the box keeps the wine fresh, so that you can drink a glass a night and avoid the waste that would come from a traditional bottle (ie regular glass bottles go bad in a few days).
Vinification: hand harvested. No external yeast & no enzymes are employed during the winemaking process. The bunches are de-stemmed & the fruit undergoes fifteen days of maceration & the wine is stored in enamel-lined tanks. The wine is bagged & boxed on demand.
Tasting Note: Garnet in the glass with shimmering highlights. Elegant notes of smoky red fruit, violet, sweet herb & a note of baking chocolate.
The palate is rich with ripe cherry & berry flavors, & a mineral note that is followed by supple acidity & velvety tannins. This is a very expressive red with a great concentration of fruit & yet it is never overly extracted. The wine finishes with floral notes & a dash of black pepper.
Vinification: Vinified in tanks & aged three months in concrete.
Tasting Note: Pale yellow in the glass with a tart, fruity nose & dynamic mineral scents. The palate opens with crisp citrus & peach flavors that are boosted by vibrant acidity & heady minerality.
