{wine} Ben Wren Wine Co – because everybody CAN!

We’ve all seen wine-in-a-can advertised all over social media. But Ben Wren Wine is so much more than just a portable version of your favourite tipple. It’s a lifestyle, it’s a philosophy, it’s a statement – and it’s great for the environment, too! Why? Read on to find out…


I was first introduced to Ben Wren and the Ben Wren Wine Co with the launch of his red and white wines in a box. Drawn like a moth to a flame to the vibrant advertising and stunning branding, I simply had to know and taste more. Soon, I realised that Ben Wren Wines are simply superior to any others, and that’s because Ben’s putting his attention and devotion into the contents of the box, as well as into the actual box. Ben Wren wines very soon became a staple in The Little House and my trusted sidekick for all occasions, after that first fateful meeting.

The wine-in-a-box idea is not new, but it’s unfortunately become stigmatised over decades of wine drinking and -production. Deemed as being seemingly of a lower quality than wine in a glass bottle, this stigma can’t be further from the truth in this case. Ben has made great leaps and bounds towards putting the bling back into box wine, with added environmentally friendly features and a super cool portable and convenient design. But in the end, it all swirls round to the gorgeous wine that you can find in the box…and of gorgeous wine, there is plenty.

Recently, Ben has expanded his little wine-army with the addition of wine-in-a-can. Featuring a sexy Sauvignon Blanc, a moody red blend, a pretty-in-pink rosé and a celebratory sparkling rosé, Ben is making a bang with these little beauties. I was so excited to receive a little delivery from Ben over the festive season and couldn’t wait to finally get my hands on the cans. Ben Wren Wine has left me feeling quite festive long after the Christmas pudding.


The Ben Wren Wine Co. was created in the belief that you don’t need fancy bottles or foiled labels to tell if a wine is good or not. Not when your taste buds are quite capable of knowing the difference.

Sourced from respected estates within the Cape’s prolific wine producing region, the wine in the box (and in the can!) is exactly the same as the wine in their bottle. Same vineyards. Same grapes. Same wine master. Same oak barrels.

It costs a whole lot less to put wine in a box (or in a can!). So they can afford to look around for premium quality wine. And charge you less for it. It’s the very definition of a win/win (Ben Wren website).
