High-quality, vintage, AVA-specific Pinot Noir and Chardonnay now available in cans through Just Enough Wines
San Francisco, California, September 29, 2020 – With the launch of Just Enough Wines on September 30, 2020, consumers will no longer have to choose between quality and convenience. By reinventing canned wine, founder Jessica Hershfield wanted to end the trend of unpleasant portable libations. Leaving a successful career in high tech, she set out to make a canned wine that exceeded expectations of poor quality. Just Enough wines are not only easy to pack wines, but also consciously crafted wines from premium vineyards and accessible to everyone. Offering an Edna Valley, Central Coast, CA Pinot Noir and an Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley, OR Chardonnay, Just Enough Wines is one of the few to raise the bar and create vintage and specific canned wines. AVA. Escape the wait, break your routine, and take great wine anywhere with Just Enough Wines.
A former Stanford innovator, a native of San Diego and a former innovator of Google, Uber and Lime, Hershfield left her successful but unsatisfying tech career in November 2019 to start something she was passionate about. “I was tired of going down this predetermined path and decided there was more to living than just following the expectations of the world,” Hershfield said of his decision to break into the wine business. Regarding the mission of Just Enough Wine, “we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy quality wine when, where and with whom they want. We have created a portioned wine in a practical and personal portion; where no bottle opener is needed, wine glasses are optional, pouring is not necessary and you are free to enjoy the wine the way it should, without the pretense.
The idea for Just Enough Wines was sparked by a common problem that wine drinkers often encounter; either drink too much wine or not finish the bottle and waste it a few days later. By producing a one-size-fits-all solution that is also of exceptional quality, Hershfield and his team sought to eliminate the pretense of wine and appeal to a modern consumer. The 250ml cans equate to approximately 1.5 glasses of wine, providing a convenient serving size for all wine needs. The right size cans mean fewer wasted unfinished bottles. Gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and no added sugar or concentrate, Just Enough Wines is the most sustainable choice for wine drinkers. Compared to the traditional glass wine bottle, the cans are infinitely recyclable and reduce the overall carbon footprint of wine shipping and production. Just Enough Wines also donates 1% of its income to environmentally friendly associations through its partnership with 1% For the Planet. Love of wine, respect for the land and a delicious no-fuss option for any occasion combine with Just Enough Wines.
