Yeah, we know: Canned wine sounds kind of crazy. Maybe even a step down from those embarrassing boxes of wine. But just like craft brewers discovered a while back, once you can get past the stigma of that metal cylinder, you'll find that cans make a fine vessel. They don't absorb light and oxygen like traditional bottles with corks. Aluminum is more recyclable than glass and is better at maintaining the temperature of your wine. Plus, it's a lot more portable. These cans go anywhere—including a lot of places glass bottles are prohibited. So pop one open by the pool, at the beach, on a campout or a simple picnic at the park.
This tallboy-style can boasts a whopping 500ml, nearly as much as a standard bottle. What's inside is a unique blend of Zinfandel, Grenache, Tempranillo and Sirah, resulting in a rich red wine, deep in color with ripe berry flavors accented with a touch of dark chocolate.
These lean, 250ml cans are the product of an urban winery in Denver. A blend of local Viognier and Roussanne grapes make for a crisp white wine with flavors of stone fruit and citrus. And the slight effervescence offers a refreshing, sparkling finish.
Made in Napa Valley by The Ranch Winery, this quick-chilling, wide-mouth screw top holds a half-bottle's worth of Monterey County chardonnay. The easy-drinking wine balances a light acidity with buttery notes and flavors of tropical fruit.
The wine housed inside these classic 12oz (or 375ml) cans is a lot like the design on the outside—simple and understated yet thoughtfully produced. The new rosé is bursting with summery melon and strawberry sweetness balanced with a pop of piquant acidity.
