The Climber Pouch… from Clif Family Winery, the family that makes Clif Bars and my favorite Luna Bars. Started in 2004, Clif Family Winery and Farm in St. Helena, California ‘extended their passion for all things delicious and natural into the realm of wine and gourmet food.’ And they are now producing five wines including The Climber White Wine and Red Wine.

Then on Earth Day this year, they launched this clever new packaging for The Climber wines, The Climber Pouch. The packaging itself is very cool… perfect to take camping, hiking or picnicking, and its 80% lower carbon footprint and 90% less waste than the glass equivalent. All that and the wine is good too!

I tried The Climber Pouch at last month’s Wine Bloggers Conference during the Live Wine Blogging sessions.

  • The Climber Pouch Cabernet Sauvignon: Full of blackberry jam and black currant flavors with a nice soft finish.
  • The Climber Pouch Chardonnay: Unoaked, tropical, melon, grapefruit flavors that are quite lively.

Retail price is $16.99 with 1% of sales going to 1% for the Planet. The product is hot…it sold out in two months so more had to be produced. You can order directly on line before your next outdoor adventure.

Cheers to good wine for on the go!
