Frequenty Asked Question

How old do I need to be to shop from Djuce online?

The answer to this question depends on the country in which you are resident. Djuce will never deliver wines to anyone that is below the legal ordering and drinking age of any country.

Where can I buy/drink Djuce?

Apart from the obvious of ordering it online here and getting it delivered to your door, you will find a complete list of restaurants, wine shops, hotels and retail stores that sell Djuce here.

Is there a taste difference between wine in glass and wine in a can?

The WBW Exibition, in collaboration with WIC Research, published that 51.3% of blind taste participants, preferred canned wine or found no difference in taste. An article by Forbes covering the same study, concludes no strong preferences between the identical wine packaged in a can, vs. packaged in a bottle. Surprisingly, dry Riesling wine in a can was preferred by 57.2% of participants, and dry Rosé in Can was preferred by 68.3% of participants.

Why did you start putting wine into cans?

We found this mind blowing graph showing that more than 50% of the climate impact of wine came from packaging and transport (which to 50% is dependent on packaging) and started thinking about the positive impact we could make if we made drinking wine from alternative packaging a thing for people.

What is the goal with Djuce?

To create a wine experience (in alternative packaging) that is better for people than the experience they have today. If we do so we will be one part in changing the industry to a more sustainable way of doing business.

What makes you think people will change considering that they’re accustomed to buying wine in glass bottles?

Regardless of the norm, we believe there’s always room for positive change. In the year 2000, the concept of using cork for the closure of wine bottles was being challenged by the group of Clare Valley producers. The alternative was Aluminum cap screw, that costs less, is more environmental, and doesn’t risk cork taint. Today, 32% of the global wine bottle market uses aluminum screw caps which shows that change can be successful even in a traditional industry. Now it’s time to change the larger part of the bottle into more sustainable packaging.

From where in the world can I order your cans?

We currently ship to Germany, Sweden, the rest of the EU and to Norway and Switzerland.

Do you pay all taxes, VAT or customs duties for my order?

In Germany and Sweden all taxes and VAT is paid for. For the rest of the EU we only pay VAT so any additional duties you need to pay for yourself. For countries outside the EU we don’t pay any taxes, VAT or customs duties.

    Where do you can your wine?

    We can at several locations in southern Europe. We have selected our partners based on a combination of craftsmanship, experience from canning wine and location.

    Why don’t you can at the vineyard using a mobile cannery?

    We have explored the mobile option during our beta phase and also tried it. The challenge with mobile is to guarantee the right conditions and avoid any faults during the process that could lower the quality of the product. With that said we are continuing to explore the option for mobile canning as an alternative for future productions.

    Where do you source the wine you put into cans?

    We source wine from every part of Europe. In our first SS22 drop we have twelve wines coming from France, Austria, Germany, Italy and Croatia. You can find out more about our producers here

    What wine do I get if I subscribe?

    The idea with our wine box is that it will be the place where you over time will be able to try our latest products as well as revisit old favorites. Each box will be curated by our wine team or one of our wine ambassadors with a certain theme (e.g. female winemakers, summer, french classics etc.) in mind. Over time we will also look to add different boxes so that you customize your selection more to fit your taste.

    How does your subscription work?

    It’s super simple, go here and choose how many cans you want (12, 18 or 24) and how often (every, every 2nd or every 3rd month) and place your order. Your first box will arrive within a couple of days (depending on where you order from). After that you will receive a new box according to your selected frequency around the 15th that month.

    Can I cancel my subscription at any time?

    Of course! Go to the email order confirmation you received upon starting your subscription. There you will find the instructions to cancel. If you do it 30 days or more before your next delivery your subscription is canceled immediately. If you cancel less than 30 days before your next delivery you will receive that box, after which your subscription is canceled.

    Some of your packaging says 72% reduction of CO2 but in all other communication you claim 79%?

    At the time when we printed our ecom mailer boxes the data we had was the 72% reduction of CO2. Since then a new report from the same research institute has been published which increases the reduction to 79%.

    Is the can recyclable?

    We source our aluminum metal cans from Ardagh Group. Ardagh cans have the trademark “Metal Recycles Forever”, meaning that cans are 100% recyclable and can be recycled infinitely with no loss of quality. Recyclability is Aluminums strongest environmental attribute, especially when it comes to reducing CO2 emissions.

    Where is your aluminium sourced

    We don’t handle the aluminum ourselves. We source our aluminum metal cans from Ardagh Group, a producer for various forms of packaging. Ardagh cans have the trademark “Metal Recycles Forever”, meaning that “Cans are 100% recyclable and can be recycled infinitely with no loss of quality”

    Ardagh has earned an A rating from CDP, which is an international not-for-profit charity that runs a global disclosure system which helps different stakeholders to manage environmental impacts. The rating can be found here.

    Where is the cans you use produced?

    They are produced by Ardagh Group which has production facilities all over Europe. Their beverage metal packaging facility is located in Valdemorillo, Madrid, Spain.

    Why are you going for cans instead of paper packaging. Isn’t that even more sustainable from a CO2 emission perspective?

    It is true that the CO2 emissions from the production of paper packaging is almost half of that of a can. With the overall goal of reducing the climate impact of wine we looked at which packaging type had the highest chance of attracting wine drinkers, changing their consumption behavior away from heavy glass bottles. We choose cans based on the success cans have had in craft beer coupled with the super strong growth of canned wine in the US. We are also exploring paper packaging with the ambition to also try it in the market in the near future.

    What do you mean by sustainably farmed?

    Our starting point is that we work with winemakers that are seeking to make wine with the least amount of negative impact on the environment. This can manifest itself by certification (ECOLOGICAL or BIO) but we also find winemakers that deliberately have chosen not to adhere to those standards but that still go further in their ambition to decrease their negative impact. Over time we will also develop a clear framework for the type of winemakers we collaborate with.

    How can you claim that transport is more efficient when Djuce supply adds 1 shipment?

    On a standalone basis, transporting the same volume of wine in cans instead of glass bottles results in a 50% reduction in CO2 emission. This is due to the stackability and volume efficiency of cans.

    We estimate that transporting one 750ml wine bottle emits 189.2 g CO2 on average, whereas transporting three 250ml cans emits roughly 95 g CO2 on average if shipped from the winery.

    By accounting for the extra transport leg, we add 12g CO2 per 250 ml can or 36g per 750 ml bottle. Making it still more environmentally-friendly than transporting a wine bottle which still stands at 189.2 g CO2, while transporting the cans results in roughly 131 g CO2. A 31% reduction in CO2 emission from transport, despite the necessary extra step in the supply chain.

    How is my Djuce Package order more efficient than a typical wine mail order package?

    1. Djuce is roughly 3 times more efficiently stacked

    2. With Djuce you’re shipping 5.5 L of air, whereas a typical mail package ships 24 L of air

    3. For the same volume of wine, the Djuce package weighs 5.4 kg, whereas a typical mail package weighs 8.0 kg and causes more emissions.

    How are Aluminum cans made?

    Aluminum is sourced from bauxite which is mined from the ground. Bauxite is converted to alumina which is subsequently used to make aluminum rolls. The primary production of aluminum rolls from mined bauxite is the most energy intensive part of the making of aluminum cans. Using recycled aluminum bypasses this process. Aluminum rolls are used by can makers, such as our supplier Ardagh, in a process outlined in this video.

    Is wine in glass bottles safer to drink?

    Aluminum cans are coated with an inner lining that preventes the wine from reacting with metal. There are no health hazards from the lining we use, and it doesn’t contain BPA.

    How much will a transition to wine cans affect the environment?

    The average Swede consumed roughly 20 liters of wine in 2020, If they consumed it in glass bottles, the impact per person would be 44.96 kg CO2 If they consumed it in Aluminum cans, the impact per person would be 22.45 kg CO2 This is roughly 50% reduction in CO2.
