Just in time for summer, here are our five favorite rosés in a can - in no particular order
Someone, somewhere decided it was time to not just put wine in a can to help us solve this problem, but there are now specialty rosés in a can too!
Your favorite summery pink drink can now accompany you to all of your favorite activities in the city, in a safe, unbreakable package
Our favorite brands include Underwood Rosé, Babe Rosé and Ah So Rosé
Summer outdoor activities are what we look forward to all year- picnics, harbor cruises, dinner parties on the roof- and all of them are great reasons to drink wine! The problem is that dragging along heavy glass bottles on the subway or in a Lyft is an extremely inconvenient thing in this city, although we’ve all definitely done it.
The good news is that someone, somewhere decided it was time to not just put wine in a can to help us solve this problem, but there are now specialty rosés in a can too! Your favorite summery pink drink can now accompany you to all of your favorite activities in the city, in a safe, unbreakable package (legally, and responsibly of course.)
Here are our five favorite rosés in a can- in no particular order:
The folks at Alloy are big players in the canned wine game and have worked hard to develop blends that not only look good (we’re big fans of their branding) but have a taste that belongs in a bottle. This one has those traditional bright, fruity flavors of a quality rosé and although is a little more expensive than the rest, is definitely worth the cost. $30 for a 4 pack.
Oregon knows wine, and they know how to be cool. Put them together and you have Underwood Wines, a purveyor of fine, sustainably grown, canned wines that are as delicious as they are convenient. Classically fruity, you can’t go wrong. $28 for a 4 pack.
Backpack was born out of millennials’ need for efficient drinking but without sacrificing quality. As they say, not every can is made the same, and they take great pride in sourcing only the best Washington State wines and then putting them in fashionable cans. $15.99 for a 4 pack.
You’ve probably seen this one everywhere which makes sense because it comes from Swish Bev, the company that produces White Girl Rosé- aka the Fat Jewish’s wine company. If you’re a fan of that bottle, then you’ll love these cans! It’s nothing fancy but it’ll look cute and everyone will know that you’re cool and hip to the latest trends. $16.99 for a 4 pack.
Ah So is definitely the classiest on this list, as it’s a winery from Spain that only produces this rosé. It’s located in the Navarra region where they grow gorgeous Garnacha grapes, and they focus only on organic, sustainable viticulture so there are no chemicals or herbicides. The only downside is you may have to work a little harder to find it but it’ll be worth it. $19.99 for a 4 pack.
You often hear that there are pairing requirements for food and wines- red wine can only be paired with red meat, chicken and fish must go with white wine, you’ve heard them all. When in doubt, it’s a good guideline if you’re not sure, however, it’s not always the case. There are beautiful wines that - Read More
There are food festivals, and then there are culinary extravaganzas that will stun and delight you. Harvest in the Square is a 24-year-old tradition that takes place in our glorious Union Square Park that celebrates the magnificence that is the New York City food scene while supporting the health of the park itself.

We’re having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that summer is almost over. Labor Day Weekend signifies the end of the season, with schools starting and temperatures cooling down. It’s most likely going to stay warm for a little while longer but the mornings and evenings will get a little chilly and - Read More
Okay, we know Taco Tuesday is usually accompanied by margaritas, but hear us out. How about wine instead? Sure, it’s unconventional but we really have yet to find a circumstance when a wine isn’t the right choice. Tequila goes with pretty much every kind of taco which makes it easy, but wine can be - Read More
The cold weather that strikes the northern parts of New York is good for only a few things: snow, ice skating, and hybrid grapes.

If Riesling is the unofficial white grape of New York, then Cabernet Franc is our red. This bold black grape is one of the main grapes used in Bordeaux wine blends, typically being blended with Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. It came to popularity in the 1600s in the Loire Valley, where it actually helped to create the - Read More
Riesling has a bit of a strange reputation. It’s a German wine that used to be consumed as a sweet, dessert wine, as most variations were cloyingly sweet and best when cold. While these do still exist, there is a new Riesling in town and it hails from New York State. In the northern part - Read More
Of the white wines from France, we probably think of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Grigio first. It’s not necessarily that they are the best or most interesting (although they can be) but rather that they’re the most common and therefore the most widely known. As you’ve probably learned by now, the wine world is - Read More
Wine + cheese = joy.

We’ve - Read More

There are literally thousands of varietals of grapes grown around the world, plus about a thousand more waiting to be discovered.
