At a beach, a picnic or your backyard, wine in a can just says summer. Pop open our local favorites.
ROSÉ 2020, Palmer Vineyards
If you think canned rosé lacks personality, introduce yourself to Palmer. This is a dry rosé with notes of strawberry and a surprising spiciness, thanks to a blend that includes both cabernet franc and syrah in addition to merlot and cabernet sauvignon. $7/can
CANETTE BLUEBERRY LEMON SPRITZER, Chronicle Wines
The entire line of CANette spritzers — featuring fizzy fruit-citrus mashups like pomegranate-lime and watermelon-yuzu — is plain fun. But it’s hard to get more summery than this new release, which somehow manages to evoke a fresh blueberry pie without tasting like dessert. At only 6% ABV, it’s made for afternoons on the porch. $24/4-pack
SWEET SCARLET, Pindar Vineyards
This red table wine is best served chilled and accompanied by views of the water. Off-dry but not cloying, Sweet Scarlet pairs perfectly with your favorite spicy dishes or pizza. It would also make a killer base for your favorite sangria recipe. $24.99/4-pack
BRIDGE LANE BUBBLES, Bridge Lane Wines
This wine is a party in a can. With hints of citrus and a touch of honey, the riesling-based sparkling white wine has just the right amount of sweetness. Enjoy it with local oysters, a cheese plate or a bucket of fried chicken.
DRY ROSÉ 2020, Paumanok Vineyards
The dreamy seaside scene on the label does not lie: This light, bright sip is everything you want in a beach-ready rosé. It’s the first canned wine from standard-bearer Paumanok, recently named New York’s Winery of the Year. $7/can
