Don’t you hate when you want a glass of wine, but you don’t want to open a whole bottle? Red wine especially doesn’t take long to go bad. It’s wasteful – and abuse of a delicious merlot, cabernet or pinot.
One night I had the desire for a glass, but found myself in the above predicament. I debated whether or not to open a bottle, but then was delighted to find a couple left over single serving miniature bottles.
Sold in sets of four, 187 milliliter plastic bottles (well for the most part) they are the perfect solution to nights when you might be dining/indulging alone.
I’ve also noticed some bars and restaurants using these individual bottles as opposed to the regular 750 ml bottles. While variety of vineyards offering these miniature bottles isn’t as vast as the real thing, more and more are popping into the market.
I do admit, I rarely think to buy the four packs, and tend to buy the full bottles because of the greater selection. However, that night when I found myself in that predicament, I made a mental note to put them on my shopping list.
Cavit, Sutter Home and Stone Cellars by Beringer are just a few brands that you should be able to easily find at your local package store.
Do you love the individual serving bottles?
