If you’re attached to certain wine traditions with a lot of romance, it may be best to avoid this article.  The number one trend the master sommelier states is as follows:

Canned wine sales have more than doubled in the past year, reaching $6.4 million in sales.

“It makes all the sense in the world,” says Broglie. “Accessibility, affordability, recyclability, the convenience of single serving — all these things. With wine, we were noticing that people just want to be less stuffy about everything.”

Broglie helped Whole Foods jump on the canned wine trend when it was in its infancy. The retailer began selling Presto sparkling wine (already a best-seller) in a can two years ago, and named canned wine as a trend to watch out for in 2016 late last year.
