It’s no secret I’m a wine lover…I even co-founded Have Wine, Will Drink with Gigi from KludgyMom. One of our “jobs” was to find new wines to introduce to women, and while we no longer have our wine site, I still love sharing everything about wine. And I’m excited to tell you about STACKED Wines!
Why I LOVE STACKED Wines
STACKED wine is fine wine pre-poured into four stemless plastic wine glasses, stacked on top of each other, and then sold to wine lovers everywhere. Why is this so cool? Well let’s say you’re a woman who occasionally wants a glass of wine but doesn’t want to open up and drink the entire bottle…I do not understand this concept, but follow me here people…this is the perfect solution. Or maybe you are going on a picnic, to a concert or somewhere else where you don’t want to lug around a bottle of wine, a corkscrew, and wine glasses. STACKED is the solution.
See what I mean? The glasses pull apart from each other and each has a foil seal covering the top. You pull the foil off, and voila! You’ve got a glass of wine! The “glasses” were designed by engineers to offer the look and feel of a wine glass, and the materials also protect the wine from oxidation and spoilage. The high-quality material is shatterproof and lightweight. I saved the glasses to use again when we’re outside so I don’t have to worry about my good wine glasses getting knocked over and broken. I’m green like that (all materials are recyclable, by the way). A 4-pack has the same volume, 750 ml, as a traditional bottle of wine.
Enough about the cool packaging, which is what originally drew me to the wine, this wine is tasty! STACKED’s wines were selected by their in-house sommelier (or the guy that knows his wine for all of you non-winos), and they are refreshing, fruit forward, and reflect the true flavor profiles for each varietal.
The Chardonnay was just delicious. You could definitely taste the fruitiness of it (I could taste apple!), yet it wasn’t too sweet or overpowering. One of the reasons I love a good Chardonnay is for its butteriness, and I picked up on that right away.
The Merlot was so mellow and relaxing! I could taste berries, and a hint of oak but it wasn’t overpowering at all. It was lovely.
Would I recommend STACKED wines? Absolutely! And I will be purchasing them again myself! You can purchase STACKED wines online, or at your favorite grocery store. What a unique gift idea for wine lovers.
