Let’s talk about the Angeles Forest and some good ol’ Pinot Gris.
This past Sunday, the boy and I decided to take a trek out to the Angeles Forest for a morning hike to the Cooper Canyon Waterfalls, a 700 foot descent totaling in a 2 mile hike round trip. When we reached the waterfall, we sat down on a few boulders, unwrapped our turkey sandwiches and cracked open our cans of Underwood Pinot Gris. Drinking on the go was never easier…uh-oh.
Delicious Oregon wine in a can is exactly what’s RIGHT with the food & beverage industry. Unpretentious, no frills wine for people who just want a good quality drink. Union Wine Company is the mastermind behind Underwood and came up with the packaging due to one of their outdoorsy employees. He found that lugging heaving bottles from different locations was a chore, and Union Winos brainstormed what a lighter wine container for their product could look like. Thus, their wine can was born: perfect for thru-hikers and weekend warriors alike.
What I love about Union Wine Company is their strict “pinkies down” rule. This doesn’t stray away from how quality their wine is. The Pinot Gris was perfect, especially after cooling it in the waterfall.
