Year the first canned wine was produced. According to Drinks International, wine canning began one year after the first beer was canned, yet with much less success. Primitive techniques and unstable wines made for a rough outcome. It wasn’t until 2004 with the release of Niebaum’s-Coppola Mini Blanc de Blancs, sparkling wine from California, that canned wine went mainstream. Today, the canned wine makret is worth more than $86 million in the United States alone.
