Beer has always been associated with watching sports, but the rise of canned wine and alternative packaging is about to change the game and Union Wine Company is ready for it.
Union partnered with Portland’s Timbers FC and Thorns FC on custom can wraps inspired by the teams’ colors. The 250ML can size allows consumers to enjoy Underwood Pinot Noir (green can), Pinot Gris (white can) and Rosé (red can) while showing their support for the home teams. With these custom can wraps, Union is once again proving to be ahead of the curve and remaining steadfast in finding new ways to innovate the wine industry.
Union recently built its own 43,000 square foot packaging facility. With bottling rates of 200-250 bottles per minute and 600-650 cans per minute, not only is it the fastest and most automated canning and bottling facility in both the state of Oregon and the canned wine industry, but it also gives Union the opportunity to adapt their product for unique partnerships in an efficient and cost-effective way. Beaujolais Nouveau Day is coming up November 21st and Union will debut another custom can to celebrate!
