Aussie startup offers sommelier-curated wines in pouch format

Wine delivery service, A Glass Of, has teamed up with Australian wineries and restaurants – from indie to leading brands – to offer consumers sommelier-curated wines in a pouch format.

The company said its service allows consumers to sample the country’s best wines affordably without purchasing the whole bottle. 

“You can expect the same body, texture and mouthfeel you would get from wines packaged in traditional glass bottles, plus a printed card with Alex Kirkwood’s tasting notes, so it’s basically like having one of Australia’s best sommeliers at the kitchen bench with you,” said the company. 

Aside from wine sampling, each foil pouch is made from “precycled” material and is fully recyclable. In addition, less material and energy are used in the production of the mini casks compared to their vino counterparts, saving as much as 73 per cent in energy, 94 per cent in water, and producing 82 per cent less CO2 emissions compared to the products in glass bottles.

Each season, the company partners with a sommelier from one of the best restaurants in the country. This season, it has teamed up with award-winning Shell House sommelier, Alex Kirkwood, to create a selection of handpicked wines. 

This season’s Alex Kirkwood x A Glass Of wine list includes:

  • Breaking Ground Semillon (2022), Broke Fordwich NSW.
  • Mada Pinot Gris (2022), Hilltops NSW.
  • Maker Master Merchant Organic Rosé (2022), Central Ranges.
  • Harrison Grenache (2022), Barossa Valley, SA.
  • Agori Montepulciano Nero d’Avola (2022),  Riverland, SA.

A Glass Of is available in 200ml pouches of wine in a box of five for around $45 each nationwide.
