Why Cans?

We often get asked, why put wine in cans?

Click on the tiles below to see just some of the reasons why we do. It’s still the same great tasting wine that you would find in a bottle. The only difference is that it’s in a more convenient way to drink it.

To us, it’s #NOBRAINER


Amfora are conscious to use only recyclable materials. Starting with the cans you are drinking from; compared to glass, aluminium is infinitely recyclable. If you recycle your empty can it is possible to be made into a new can, refilled and put back into circulation in just 60 days. Saving approximately 95% of the energy required to make a can from new raw materials.

No accessories needed

No corkscrew, no glass, no decanting. Just great wine, ready for when you are.

Less waste

69 million bottles of sparkling wine alone, end up down the sink each year! Canned wine allows you to enjoy one glass without opening a whole bottle. A 250ml can is the equivalent to a large glass serve, which could also be shared.

Lower Carbon Footprint

The carbon footprint of transporting and packaging wine in a can is up to 80% lower than glass bottles. Cans are lighter, easier to stack and less prone to breakage, so less packaging is required. Overall, considerably more efficient to transport.

Quick to chill

Chill in minutes... not hours! A bottle of wine takes approximately 3 hours to chill, compared to 30 minutes for cans.

Anytime, anywhere

Wine in a can is easier, safer & lighter to carry than bottles or glasses. Giving you the freedom to enjoy great wines without compromise on taste or location. The same volume of wine in a bottle weighs 33% more. This also makes your recycling bin at home lighter when you need to empty it 😉.
