“From the Tank®” — high-quality low-intervention wine at a great price. And it’s good for the planet, too!

“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 Jenny created “From the Tank®”, she was determined to source organically or sustainably grown grapes that are then turned into wine with very little intervention. What we created together with our winemaking partner Christophe Aguilar of Domaine de La Patience in the South of France remains to this day unique in the marketplace of wine. A wine that tastes natural and can be purchased at retail for the equivalent of $8-$12 per 750ml bottle. Presented in packaging that reduces greenhouse emissions, and is easier to transport and serve than traditional glass bottles.

3-Liter bag-in-box is the most carbon-efficient wine package and produces the least waste. It has a 55% lower carbon footprint than traditional glass bottles in terms of energy needed for glass production and transportation and produces 85% less landfill waste. Paperboard is easily recycled.

Its lighter weight (3,2kg for 3 liters of wine compared to ~4.8kg brut weight of four standard 0.75 glass bottles) also means reduced fossil fuel emissions further in the logistic chain.

The lightweight makes “From the Tank®” perfect for a picnic, a party, or simply to carry home and put in the refrigerator and enjoy a glass of wine from time to time without having to open a full bottle.

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 not finishing a traditional bottle of wine (if such a thing ever happens to you .).

Economical.

Ecological.

Delicious.


FROM THE TANK Red

Grapes: Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Mourvedre

Vineyard: Red clay-based and stone-strewn soil. The grapes come mostly from Domaine de La Patience’s own organically grown grapes.

Making of: The grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and the fruit undergoes fifteen days of maceration to extract enough body and flavors from the skins. Fermented with neutral yeast in concrete tanks where the wine is then stored. Bagged and boxed on-demand to ensure maximum freshness, with light filtration and no fining.

Personality: solar and Mediterranean! Garnet in the glass with shimmering highlights. Elegant notes of smoky red fruit, violet, sweet herb, and a note of baking chocolate. The palate is rich with ripe cherry and berry flavors, and a mineral note that is followed by supple acidity and velvety tannins. Expressive red with a great concentration of fruit, finishing with floral notes and a dash of black pepper.

6 x 3L per case / 20-liter kegs

 


FROM THE TANK White 

Grapes: Chardonnay

Vineyard: Loess (a highly porous mixture of sand and clay). The grapes come from Domaine de La Patience’s own organically grown plots and purchases from neighboring growers (practicing organic, not certified)

Making of: The grapes are direct-pressed, cold-stabilized and then fermented with neutral yeast in concrete and stainless steel tanks (alcoholic fermentation only, no MLF in order to keep freshness and acidity). The wine is then stored in the same tanks on fine lees with regular battonages. Bagged and boxed on-demand to ensure maximum freshness, after fining and light filtration.

Personality: refreshing everyday white. Pale yellow in the glass with a tart, fruity nose and dynamic mineral scents. The palate opens with crisp citrus and peach flavors that are boosted by vibrant acidity and heady minerality.
