Wine in a pouch is one more move by the wine industry into more environmentally friendly and convenient packaging. Clif Family Winery, St. Helena, CA, has introduced the Climber Pouch, a 1.5L pouch of wine that contains the equivalent of two 750mL bottles and is designed for the outdoors.
The Climber Pouch, which is supplied by AstraPouch, features a dispensing spout and will stay fresh for up to a month in a cooler. According to AstraPouch, the pouch, which is double-gusseted to optimize shelf presence, is made of a laminate consisting of (inside to outside) PE metalized polyester (for oxygen protection) and reverse-printed clear PET.
