Award-winning wines join Brew Pipeline’s Portfolio program
June 15, 2020 – Pewaukee, Wis. – Brew Pipeline, a direct-access platform between craft beverage producers and new markets, announced today it’s welcoming Porch Pounder, award-winning canned wines from California, as its newest PORTFOLIO addition. All five of Porch Pounder’s wines will be available nationwide (44 new states) and year round.
One of the first wineries to bring canned wine to market, Porch Pounder highlights vinted wines from single appellation vineyards sourced from the central coast wine region of California. With sustainable packaging, each can fills the equivalent of two full glasses of wine or half a bottle.
“As the canned wine trend continues to grow in popularity, Brew Pipeline is thrilled to add Porch Pounder to the family,” says Steve Kwapil, CEO and co-founder of Brew Pipeline. “All five top-quality canned wines are thoughtfully crafted and delicious – we’re confident the rest of the country will agree.”
Porch Pounder is available in single 375ml cans and will soon be available on draft. The suggested retail selling price ranges from $4.99 to $5.99 per can.
