An Elegant Solution for One-a-Day Wine Drinkers

Photo (cc) by jenny downing

If you love having just one glass of wine at night, or if you’ve been on the hunt for an inexpensive wine that you can easily tote to the beach, take on a bike ride, or toss in your backpack to go to a tailgate, you may want to check out Xo, G wines by Giuliana Rancic.

The fact that Xo, G wine is packaged in individual servings and you don’t need a corkscrew to open them is likely to sweeten the deal.

The packaging for Xo, G wine includes four 187 milliliter prefilled and individually sealed stemless wine glasses that are interlocked to form the equivalent of a 750 milliliter bottle. The Vinoware wine glasses are shatterproof and recyclable.

Oh, and did I mention that a four-pack of Xo, G wines costs less than $10?

Rancic, a former E! News host, recently shared a picture of the Xo, G wine being sold at Wal-Mart for $8.97. If you would prefer to order the wine online, you can do that at wine.com, MarketWatch said.

The wine comes in four varietals: pinot grigio, moscato, pinot noir and rose. You can also purchase it in a mix pack, which includes two glasses of pinot grigio and two glasses of pinot noir.

According to MarketWatch, the uniquely packaged line of Xo G wines is more practical and fun than it is tasty.

“As for the liquid inside the package, well, it’s not going to win any awards, but it’s not horribly offensive,” Charles Passy wrote in MarketWatch. (Go for the rose and pass on the pinot noir, Passy recommends.)

The wine is being marketed to those on the go and those who want to enjoy just one glass of wine at a time.

But if you’re a one-glass-of-wine-a-night drinker, here’s another option for you: You could always open a regular bottle of wine, pour a glass and recork the bottle to enjoy another time.

According to Wine Folly, opened sparkling wine is good for one to three days if it’s refrigerated and has a wine stopper. Light wine and rose wine will last for five to seven days refrigerated with a cork. Full-bodied white wine is good for three to five days in the fridge with a cork. Red wine is still good three to five days after opening it, as long as you cork it and store it in a cool, dark place.
