There is no stated shelf life for canned wine! Can manufacturers often only warranty the cans for a 12 month period, and that causes confusion with shelf stability. Sans Wine Co. produces wines that are ready to be enjoyed the moment they are purchased, however, we maintain a healthy library of back vintages and taste them periodically to ensure quality. Wine in can ages slower than in bottle. With canned wine there is no Ultraviolet light penetration, no oxygen exchange, and the headspace of the can is filled with liquid nitrogen…creating a much more stable environment than glass bottles. Our first vintage of canned wines, taste just as great as the day they were filled!
