Copa di Vino single serve wine

Post Icon

My local grocery store, Leblanc’s Payless, has one of the best wine aisles I’ve ever seen. Every once in a while I make a visit specifically to restock my wine collection, browsing the new varietals and labels being stocked or looking for a wine new to introduce to my palate.

I recently came across an aisle setup with single serve wine in a ready to drink plastic wine glass — Copa di Vino. I grabbed two, one Pinot Grigio and one Chardonnay to try at home. I’ll admit, I wasn’t expecting too much from a plastic container.

The Verdict: Better than Expected

The convenience of wine in a plastic glass makes this a winner in my book. I realize this isn’t the first idea for single serving wine containers, but the product would work well for tailgating, camping, and beach excursions. They pack easy in an ice chest alongside cans of beer and Capri Sun and are shaped to fit in the hand easily. There’s no need to lug around a corkscrew and you don’t have to worry about breaking the bottle during transport.

Yes, the packaging is kind of a novelty, but the wine inside was pretty decent. The Chardonnay was good during the first sip, with with apple and citrus notes, but wasn’t the best Chardonnay I’ve ever tasted. The Pinot Grigio was better than the Chardonnay in my opinion, with with a cleaner finish. There are other varietals, including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, and White Zinfandel. The company states that the wine is good for up to one year, but I wouldn’t store this with my traditional wine bottle collection. It’s meant to be consumed and stores well on the fridge door.

Copa di Vino winery and tasting room is located at Sunshine Mill, The Dalles, Oregon. It can be found at retail locations around the US, and at select venues such as The Getty Museum in Los Angeles, exclusive country clubs, and luxury grocery markets.

  1. These guys were on the TV show “Shark Tank” last year. The “sharks” were crazy interested in the packaging system, but didn’t want the wine brand. The owner/vintner wouldn’t separate the two products, so he went home without new investors. I’d love to be able to give it a try! Without tasting the wine, I love the novelty of the containers, but really thought that he should have taken the shark’s deal.

  2. The packaging makes this a fun and novel way to enjoy a decent wine.

  3. Over here, you can get individual serves of wine in little bottles, but it’s mainly for cooking … which usually, to put it kindly, goes totally against my principle of ‘you don’t cook with wine you wouldn’t drink’

    But, individual measures of good wine is a great idea … good for trying, and seeing if you want to buy a whole bottle; great if you’re on your own, fancy some wine but don’t want to skull the whole bottle … (that’s why I like screw-top)

    Some people would regard drinking wine out of a plastic glass with horror, though … but you know me; I’ll drink it out of an ashtray if there isn’t a glass around! :D

  4. Just watched this product on Shark Tank episode. Classic! Yeah, most folks make the mistake of allowing their egos to control their decision making. And so this guy did the same. A Shark partnership would have benefitted his company; run the lousy tasting winery separately…. license to every wine maker on earth with Mr Shark. WIN-WIN

    What they failed to disclose on national television is that James Martin is NOT really the inventor of the sealed glass wine process… he partnered with the real inventor from France. He’s a USPTO filer and poser. Nothing more.

    Plus the design shape SUCKS! Looks like a mini glass of Guinness, not a cup of wine…. come one now, why not use the same design as a small, traditional shaped plastic wine glass?

    Details, details….

  5. I actually tend to go along with pretty much everything that
    is written within “Copa di Vino single serve wine”.
    Thanks for pretty much all the tips.Thank you,Penni

    Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a really well written article.
    I will make sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of your useful
    information. Thanks for the post. I will certainly return.

  7. I found your blog while searching for info on the Copa wine. My first occasion to try it was last night with my mom who does drink AT ALL but liked this wine that was given her by a friend. It was the white Zinfandel and I believe I now prefer it above several others I have tried. I am hoping to find some in my area as my husband recently started some meds which “forbid” alcohol consumption and I like the wine freshly opened. Although I find myself sometimes able to consume the whole bottle, I would prefer not to be tempted to do so! Ha!
