Vineyard’s crowdfunding campaign to launch canned wines

Nania's Vineyard

Nania’s Vineyard has launched a crowdfunding campaign in a bid to produce three new still canned wines.

The Bristol-based wine merchant is collaborating with farmers and other small growers across the country as part of the campaign.

It hopes to produce England’s first canned orange wine as well as canned pinot noir and elderflower spritzer.

James Bayliss-Smith and Shelley Nania got into winemaking in 2017 when they inherited a 50-year-old grape vine in their garden.

Nania’s Vineyard is hoping to raise £9,000 with its crowdfunding campaign – launching on Wednesday, June 23 – which it says will help to fund the purchase of six tonnes of grapes.

Mr Bayliss-Smith told Business Live: “Sometimes also called amber wine, orange wine is skin-contact white wine.

“It’s made in the manner of red wine, with the skins left in, which gives more flavour, more texture and an often glowing final colour.

“By crowdfunding our new orange wine, we can access the country’s best grapes and support growers from across the country.”
