6 New Canned Rosés Worth Cracking Open
We all love rosé, but sometimes bringing our fave pink drink along for the ride (or beach day, or picnic outing) just isn’t feasible. For starters, you usually need a corkscrew. And then there are glasses to consider. Not to mention bringing your own bottles into a public venue is pretty much frowned upon. So that brings us to the novel notion: Wouldn’t sipping cans of this crowd-pleasing nectar be easier? Why yes, yes, it would. Behold the new, travel-friendly rosés leading the way into warmer days of imbibing with friends. And the best part? Unlike canned wines of yore, these artfully created blends are not only drinkable, they’re downright delicious.
Archer Roose, known for its delicious drinkable vino in a can, made headlines with its portfolio of classics at an affordable price point. Now the company is back with a new line of spritzes straight out of Naples. Made from organic grapes and a grenache, syrah, vermentino base, this fizzy quencher is gluten-free, vegan, low alcohol (6 percent ABV), and only 90 calories a pop.
This dry rosé that hails from Napa Valley has hints of strawberry, watermelon, and spring flowers. Considering Jam Cellars makes one of the fastest growing domestic chards in the country, we have a feeling its CandyCan rosé (with 12.1% ABV) won’t be far behind.
In Japan, nomikai is a drinking party with friends, and no festivity with the gals is complete without this recently released sparkling rosé that clocks in at 112 cals and 11.5 ABV. Made with love at Ryme Cellars in Healdsburg, CA, Nomikai hits your palate with citrusy grapefruit and ripe cherries.
Right Now Rose is crafted in Cali and is bursting with zinfandel, syrah, barbera, and merlot grapes. This salmon-hued party-starter (with an ABV of 12.5) earns high marks for its smooth nature and ability to pair with casual finger foods and refined fare alike. Not to mention it comes in a cute AF raspberry-speckled sack that matches its packaging.
Born in Southern California, Hoxie’s lemon ginger take on rosé is comprised of all-natural extracts. With an alcohol content of 5 percent (and only 90 cals), these spritzers allow you to have a couple without feeling like you’ve drank an entire bottle of wine.
Inspired by the beauty of the West Coast (and California, Oregon, and Washington states to be particular), West + Wilder hit a viticulture home run with its 12.5 ABV rosé, made from Sonoma County pinot noir, with old vine Mendocino carignane, and Lodi zinfandel. Drink it where it’s meant to be savored — outdoors as a wine and cheese spread. FYI, it’s only sold as a bundle with its white wine at this time.
