Selling wine by the glass can lead to waste at restaurants or wine that just isn't top quality because the bottle isn't finished within the recommended time after recorking. A company called WineSide has come up with a unique alternative by packaging their finest wines in a unique way.
Instead of bottles, WineSide uses 10cl test tube sized wine bottles which are the perfect size for poring into a glass, without an waste or decline in quality, allowing people to pair their wine to go with a meal without feeling like they need to purchase a bottle for the table. According to WineSide, their goal is to revolutionize the catering and restaurant industry with their unique packaging of wines which can be customized to meet the needs of any food and beverage organization. WineSide also carries larger bottles of wine, in the same test tube design, just rather large. These bottles can be resealed with the screw cap that promises to keep them fresh and flavorful.
WineSide offers a product that is unique, and certainly a fun way to give the gift of wine that will be memorable to a friend or family member. But, is this a business trend that will take off in the wine industry?
