Wine in can is super sustainable

Riot Wine Co creates refreshing, easy-drinking, sustainable wine with zero compromise to quality. Riot Wine Co is on the cutting edge of a budding category, positioned as the premium product in the market and is the only wine company in Australia & New Zealand that only packages in keg & in can.

South Australia is home to 50% of Australia’s total wine production, and McLaren Vale is the spiritual home of Riot Wine Co.

Production and Recycling

  • Aluminium is the third most common element and have been recycled for as long as they have been produced
  • Nearly 75 percent of all aluminum ever produced is still in use today
  • Aluminium is 100% recyclable and experiences no loss of quality during recycling
  • Recycling aluminium uses only 5% of the energy used to create new aluminium


  • Around 20% of man made greenhouse gas emissions are generated by the transportation sector
  • One pallet of wine in cans moves 768L (256 cases of 12, 250ml cans) of wine
  • One pallet of wine in bottles moves 576L (64 cartons of 12, 750ml bottles)
  • Transport of canned wines is 33% more efficient

Wine in kegs is super sustainable


  • A 50L keg is equivalent in volume to 66.6, 750ml bottles
  • Pouring wine from a stainless steel keg, at a velocity of 1 stainless steel keg a month, will save 23,000 bottles from landfill over the course of a stainless steel kegs 30 year lifespan
  • Stainless steel kegs do not require labels, caps, corks or cases for transport
  • 97%+ of the wine in a keg will be dispensed, minimising wine wastage caused by open bottles and oxidisation (also increases gross profits!)
