Picnic Pick Pack.




Nomikai Red
187ml cans of earth-friendly deliciousness!
(I.e., a quarter bottle of wine!)

Only $5 for 1 can! Buy here!
Only $4.50 on the 6-pack! Buy here!
And only $4 on the 12-pack! Buy here!


TL;DR: 1) Because it's high time you got over your can-don't attitude — canned wine's better for the planet! 2) Because we taste legions of canned red wines... and this is one of the best we've had all year! And 3) Because this is the best price in CA, and the best price they've ever been offered at!


What? You haven't popped a can of wine open yet? Still sending messages by telegraph? What kinda mileage you getting on your Model T these days?

Time to join us here in this new century, friends, and think outside the bottle! Cans are more environmentally friendly than bottles in (at least) two ways: 1) aluminum's more likely to be recycled than glass. 2) Cans weigh less, which cuts down on transport-related carbon emissions and reduces their overall carbon-footprint.

That said? None of that matters if you don't put delicious wine in those eco-smart cylinders!

In the case of Nomikai? Being environmentally responsible turns out to be delicious as well. (Truth: we've tried slews of red cans this year... and this is one of a tiny handful that has made our cut!)


Ryan and Megan Glaab: the can-do spirit, exemplified

Nomikai, qu'est que c'est?

Awww: poor English language: it only wishes it had a word for "the drink you have after work with friends that eases you out of brain constriction and into the ease of amity and sensory delight." The Japanese, though, have no such poverty: they have 'nomikai.'

The goal of Nomikai cans was to make exactly that — and rising star natural winemakers Megan and Ryan Glaab of Ryme Cellars ensured that it was as delicious as it was eco-smart. The 187ml can makes a perfect single-serving size, it's rated 99.99% recyclable, and the contents, most importantly (in this case a bright blend of Merlot and Mourvedre), are 100% sluggable. Light on its feet (only 12.4% ABV), this is a fun, fresh, herbaceous red to drink all summer long.


We can admit it: the cans look dope, too!

(Pro tips: these are 1) amazing with a slight chill, and 2) while it's fun to crush these out of the cans if you're on the beach? Pour this in a glass if you're at home! Why? Because this is a real wine, and you can smell and taste it better out of a wine glass! See more here!)
