Many amazing vintners realize there are times we don’t want to have a full bottle of really nice wine. While popping the top on a can doesn’t have the same impressive appeal as pulling out your corkscrew, the wines now available are just as good as their full-size bottled sisters. Here are some of our top picks.
In New Zealand, Sauvignon Blanc is king. Over 60% of all the varietals grown in the country are this white grape. So it’s no surprise Sauvignon Blanc is the best selling wine for New Zealand winery, Kim Crawford. This approachable and affordable wine is known for its citrus and tropical flavors, making it a great choice for almost any bbq recipe.
We believe sparkling wine doesn’t need a special occasion. Wouldn’t a glass on a Tuesday be just as delicious? This California sparkling rosé comes in 187ml bottles, perfect for when you want just a few bubbles one evening. Paired with a personalized cheese board, it’s an easy, yet elegant dinner for one!
Australia has been producing amazing wine for a number of decades and the red blend from 19 Crimes is no exception. This uniquely marketed wine pays homage to the individuals who landed in Australia years ago and the crimes they did that got them sent there. This hearty red is perfect for those big juicy fresh-from-the-grill burgers.
Oregon has become a wine and culinary hot spot, with many people appreciating the vibrant, crisp flavors of many Oregon wines. That’s partly what attracts people to the Union Wine Company, and specifically the Underwood line available in attention grabbing cans. These wines are refreshing and as unique as the Oregon growing region. Try pairing them with fresh summer salads on those hot, sultry nights.
If you like a little sparkle to your wine but not as much as a Champagne, then pick up a can of Eufloria White Wine or Rosé. This frizzante-style wine has a light, delicate carbonation to give you that tickle but not enough where you want to grab a Champagne flute. Perfect for cooling off poolside or with a refreshing summer dessert.
If light and refreshing is what you seek, Bonterra sauvignon blanc and rosé are equally excellent options. If you want a heartier option for that grilled steak, try their Young Red. It’s got a bright acidity with lots of fresh berry flavors you can even pair with a grilled salmon and not worry about it overpowering it.
