Wine Fit for Your Carry-On. Just Don’t Open It

Pocket-size FlyWine proves good wines do come in small packages

Posted: April 14, 2015  By MaryAnn Worobiec

Clear the runway for FlyWine. I've seen versions of single-serving wines before—products like StackTek and Zipz—which remind me more of Jell-O cups than something I want to drink from. FlyWine is an adorable screw-capped miniature wine bottle, promoted as a way to get wine into your carry-on.

Taking No Prisoners

Winemaker Jen Beloz faces the challenges (and criticisms) of taking over a beloved brand

Posted: March 3, 2015  By MaryAnn Worobiec
