Back in 2014, Graham Veysey met up with a friend for a drink after work. He found himself wondering if there was any way to make drinking wine easier. He had been a wine lover for a long time, but was tired of trying to distinguish between Merlots and Pino Noirs that other, more seasoned wine-o’s love to drone on about. He wanted something for every-day people who love wine, but don’t need all the fanfare. That very night, he brought the web domain mancanwine.com.
Two years later, MANCAN is being sold in eight states, with more to come soon. This wine comes in 12.6 oz. cans, which is equal to exactly half a bottle of wine. It is produced and canned in Sonoma County, CA and sources local grapes. It comes in three varieties: a dry full bodied red; a crisp, sweet white; and a sparkling white.
We love wine and we love this idea. Countless times we’ve experienced avoiding drinking wine because we either didn’t know what to order or we didn’t want to deal with the stemware. Cans are just so much safer. You can’t tailgate or play a round of golf with a glass of wine- unless you’re willing to have an embarrassing red wine stain on your pants. Wine-o’s like us who want a way to drink wine in any setting, will be lining up to buy this stuff. Well done Mr. Veysey, well done.
