[00:00:00] Be Like a Millennial -- Learn Something New

[00:18:21] Union Wine Company Embraces New Packaging
Oregon winemaker Ryan Harms is revolutionizing the wine industry, one can at a time. It wasn’t until a unique opportunity presented itself at a 2013 food event, Bon Appetit Presents Feast Portland, that Union Wine Company reimagined how to package its product to make it adventure-friendly. Emulating trends in the craft brewing industry, the company developed the Underwood product line comprised of six tasty wine varieties in approachable, no-fuss cans. Although this disruptive thinking raised a few eyebrows, it was widely celebrated by a previously unaccommodated, niche consumer group. It’s a good lesson for all businesses: Normal is boring. Don’t be afraid to go against convention.
