SIMON & LISA
Lisa and Simon were inspired to launch Canned Wine Co. in the spring of 2019. Passionate about great food and drink they both found great wine was difficult to find, opaque to understand and too expensive! Have you always wondered why enjoying great wine wasn’t much easier, and more accessible and more inclusive?
So after many evenings of wanting to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner but not wanting to open a bottle, particularly not an expensive one, Simon and Lisa decided there must be a better way! As a couple that enjoy an active lifestyle, a smaller amount of something great always appealed much more than a lot of something average! A few months passed, but after attending a festival in Summer 2019 and finding the wine option was poured from a heavy glass bottle into a single use plastic cup, enough was enough.
Simon and Lisa, spent the best part of the last year learning about wine and searching for the very best wines for canning. At Canned Wine Co. we only work with smaller independent wineries to source the very best wines we can. Each wine is a limited run by nature, all single vintage and single variety.
Our wines are all about discovery and curiosity. You won’t find famous grape varieties or the usual suspects, instead we bring you the best of the unknown.
