Wine in a can alone is a touch too much for some purists but Friends Fun Wine has gone a step further by adding coffee to Chardonnay and Cabernet grapes.

The Miami-based company is committed to kick-starting the ‘fun wine’ category, and says its two new low alcohol (6% ABV) low-calorie lines combine the world’s most popular day and night drinks.

It says Cabernet Coffee Espresso has a rich flavor of fresh cabernet grapes, espresso coffee, and a hint of chocolate while Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino uses sweet, refreshing Chardonnay grapes with vanilla cappuccino coffee and chocolate hints

The wines will be sold alongside Friends Fun Wines existing range (varieties include a Red Sangria and Strawberry Moscato) in 250ml slim cans as a low alcohol summer refresher to drink at summer parties, barbecues, sporting events and in the home.

Friends Fun Wines is targeting distribution in retailers, restaurants, bars, hotels, stadiums and aboard airlines.
