WineSide: Wine Tasting From Test Tube Wine Bottles

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?

waste not want not

define waste - are we more concerned with a wine that isn't as "fresh" due to recorking and lack of drinking in the appropriate time or is the bigger concern that we are creating more waste through individually packaged glasses of wine?

What an innovative way of doing a tasting! Imagine being a caterer and opening a bottle of wine for a bride to taste and she doesn't like it. You have the remaining bottle to what? drink yourself that day?

The versatility of this concept is endless! Not sure what wine a friend would like but you'd like to send a gift? Send several of these first! The novelty of the gift will certainly impress.

of course all of this assumes they really can capture and maintain the quality of the wine as claimed....big assumption....
