Things That Now Exist: Forty Ounce Bottles of Rosé
It’s the time of year when winter feels less like a season and more like a life status. Though it’s technically spring, we need all the reminders we can get. Well, today we got one. Introducing Forty Ounce Wines and their line of rosé, which pairs spring’s favorite drink with malt liquor’s favorite bottle.
For comparison, a typical bottle of rosé holds about 25 ounces. Forty Ounce Rosé tops you off with 15 extra ounces and only costs $16. It’s a suspiciously good deal, which makes us wonder how it tastes.
Here’s what we know: The rosé is made in the Loire Valley in France by Julien Brand, and the company was started by Patrick Cappiello, who’s been working in the industry for over 25 years. He’s been given the stamp of approval by the New York Times, Playboy, Eater, and Food & Wine, which all bodes well.
It can’t hurt to try the drink, just to be sure. And while you’re at it, they’ve released a muscadet forty too!
The company has only made 1,200 cases from the 2016 vintage, so this year’s forties will remain somewhat of a rare commodity. So far, the drinks are on sale in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, California, and Colorado. Of course, they’re all over Instagram too. Cheers to spring!
