STANDARD, a new chic California Red or Chardonnay wine-by-the-glass, comes in a Karim Rashid designed glass bottle giving it a stylish edge over similar options in the marketplace.
STANDARD Wines by the Glass
Wine by the glass is not a new concept. Several brands have emerged selling single servings of wine, but none as good-looking as the sophisticated design for STANDARD by Karim Rashid.
The STANDARD Bottle Design:
The patented 187.5ml glass bottles were designed by Karim Rashid in NYC and are made in Antique Green for the white wine and Flint for the red. Each features a Genuine Stelvin® Screw Cap Closure. The bottles were manufactured by standardglass co in partnership with the world’s leading glass container manufacturer, Owens-Illinois, Inc.
“We’re not looking to reinvent the way people drink wine, we just want to reinvent the STANDARD associated with a good glass of wine. As options for alternative formats increase, the median level of quality drops in correlation. It’s our mission to remove the compromise associated with smaller formats, deliver generous, quality wines to everyone in an easy to enjoy, non-committal single serving size. And do it with swag, poise, and a youthful eye towards the future whilst remembering the history and heritage that have made California wines what they are today.” – Standard Wines #notsostandard
Balancing fruit, acid, and oak as Sonoma does best, but reborn in its new form.

Reminiscent of California’s heritage, but reborn in its new form.
Opens with enticing aromas of ripe blackberries and bittersweet chocolate. Dark red fruit flavors coalesce across the palate with nuances of dried violets and baking spices, finishing with soft, dark-chocolate-like tannins. So much more than one appellation, Standard Red is sourced from Sonoma’s most renowned vineyards.
