Summer may be winding down, but canned wine is here to stay – which means there’s no reason to put the rosé away after Labor Day. With so many cute cans of wine to choose from these days, I had no choice but to sample the gamut before hosting gals’ night on the patio and share my take on the top five. All of these porch pounders would pair divinely with our watermelon salad and a snack of green olives. Looking to take on a whole meal? Throw some turkey burgers on the grill and voilà! You have dinner.
(Fun fact: did you know that canned wine is actually two glasses? Pretty sneaky way to treat yourself to a double if you ask me.)
Underwood Rosé – Fruity and a touch sweet, but still well-balanced enough to drink. Hints of watermelon and strawberry.
Tangent Rosé – Tart AF, but also crisp. Too tart for my palette, but the label sure is cute.
Mancan Rosé – Un-oaked Chardonnay and Zinfandel blend that is sweet yet refreshing. Notes of watermelon.
House Wine Rosé – Fruity but refreshing. Hints of strawberry with a dry, crisp finish.
Crafter’s Union Rosé – This one is the winner for me. It’s crisp, dry and well-balanced. All the things I am looking for in a summer rosé in a can.
