But if your boat is small, you might not have room to accommodate the 3-liter box.
Backpackers have it even worse. When you are carrying everything on your back, every ounce counts. And when you are packing that weight to the top of a 200-story building, each extra ounce is crucial.
Then what? Never fear, the wine makers have a solution!
This is a 500 ml container of wine. (If you're not conversant with the metric system, 500 ml is 2/3 of a regular bottle.) It is contained in a cardboard/foil/plastic film container which weighs almost nothing, and which can be crushed into a small ball when it has been emptied. It is the ideal personal serving!
You could fit these almost anywhere - in fact they are compact enough where you probably have room for several. No corkscrew needed; no heavy bottle to carry; no empty bottle to take up space until it can be properly disposed of.
We tested these out yesterday, when Jane and I did an overnite backpacking trip up the Boulder River (4.5 miles one way - we're just not badass enough for those 20-mile days).
|Yup, works just fine!|
