It is intended for mountaineers, trekkers and rugged types in the great outdoors generally. I didn’t know people needed or wanted wine on such endeavours, but at least it is available. You can also get a mulled version for cold winter expeditions too, but I assume you add hot water to that.
This dried wine is available from Trek’n Eat who specialise in ‘food for your outdoor life’. They do have a wonderful array of stuff, which all seems pretty sensible and suitable for a trek – only the dried wine has the feel of an April Fool – I did check the date though.
The wine – or as it says on the packet, ‘Alcoholic Drink Powder with Red Wine Extract’, what a category at the Decanter Wine Awards that would be – is just 8.2% alcohol and there is no further information as to what red wine it is extracted from.
Can someone correct me if I am wrong, but if you are carrying water, then you may as well have normal wine in a plastic bottle or bag as have a dried version – or am I missing something?
I have looked in vain for similar products, which doesn’t surprise me, but perhaps this is a sector of the market that is thriving and loads of you are enjoying powdered wine?
If anyone has tried it I would love to read your tasting note.
Can I also thank my brother for bringing this product to my attention.
