Cheers! These Are the Best Canned Wines for 2022
Canned wine is better than ever, and you've probably noticed! These perfectly portioned sips are incredibly convenient, extremely portable, and never require the use of a wine opener. And with cans, the one friend who only ever drinks sauvignon blanc can do just that while the rest of the group sips rosé poolside.
Cans aren't just better for versatile drinking, they're also more sustainable than wine in glass bottles because cans require less packaging and are lighter, which means they requires less energy for transportation—and they're less likely to break in transit. When you combine all those facts together, it's easy to see why canned wine has become such a big deal.
Now that you're ready to embrace canned wine and are planning for a picnic, beach day, party, or a camping trip, which canned wines should you buy? There are a number of tasty, high-quality options on the market, and with more wineries offering canned wine every year, the options continue to get better and better. To help you navigate this increasingly crowded category, we're sharing some of our favorite canned wines. We're hoping you can find them at your local wine store, but we've included online sources, too.
There's one important thing to know about canned wine: Not all cans are the same size. Many canned wines are sold in 250 milliliter cans, which is the same volume as a third of a bottle, and some come in 125 milliliter cans, which is about one glass. Most of our picks are available in 375 milliliter cans, which are the equivalent of half a bottle. Some canned wines are sold by the individual can, others in a four-pack, and some are also available by the case, which is 12 cans.
