New wine option for a picnic or BYO concert

Australian wine company Hardy's has released a single-serve 187 mL bottle that comes with a plastic wineglass attached to the cap. The company is hoping to attract wine drinkers who go to outdoor sporting events, etc. where you can bring your own wine.

Hardy's plans on marketing it in the UK next year--not sure when or if it will hit the United States. But, along with all of the other current wine in a box options, and the Tetra Pak (which I commented on a few months ago--kind of like a large "juice box" of wine), picnickers and others who enjoy drinking wine in the great outdoors now have lots of easy options that don't require a corkscrew or glassware.
