Red Truck Wines from Sonoma, California this month introduces their new Mini-Barrel. How cute is this little thing!

Red Truck Mini BarrelThis ‘ingenious trademark- and patent-pending barrel design complete with rings, a wood grain look and burned-in imagery’ feels like its straight from the winery to your home. The 3L barrel holds the equivalent of 4 750ml bottles of Red Truck’s Red Wine, a blend of Syrah, Petit Sirah, Cabarnet Franc and Merlot. In 2008, Food & Wine magazine named the wine’s 2005 vintage one of the “Best American Wines $15 and under.”

And this large format is considered to be more environmentally friendly than glass due to lighter weight and lower carbon footprint.

Available in March in Sam’s Club stores across the U.S. (one good reason to visit Sam’s) then nationally later in 2009.

I’ve loved this wine’s personality and brand since it came out in 2002 and now another reason to pick them up… Red Truck, White Truck or Pink Truck.
