The Best Canned Wine (Red, White and Rosé)

We did the ultimate canned wine taste test to find the BEST canned wine for you to enjoy at your next party or tailgate. The Living Locurto team tried fifteen different red, white and rosé canned wines. You might be shocked at what we found! This is a must read for wine lovers.

The Ultimate Taste Test to Find the Best Canned Wine

More winemakers are releasing their versions of canned wine, proving the canned wine trend is not going to set with the summer sun. We love wine, but so many canned wine brands on the market, how do you know you are choosing a good one? The Living Locurto team has you covered! We taste tested 15 canned wines in three different categories (Reds, whites and rosé canned wines) to find the best canned wine.

Why try canned wine?

Canned wine has a convenience factor. Toss out your corkscrew and throw a canned wine into a cooler and you are set for a day at the beach or pool. What about after summer? Can canned wines be just as fun and convenient in the winter months? We say yes they can! They’re perfect for a casual block party, a neighborhood fall festival, Christmas caroling, or a casual night in with friends.

The Best Canned Wine. The ultimate canned wine taste test to find the BEST canned wine for you to drink at your next party.

Which canned wine to buy?

Buying the right canned wine can overwhelming, so we decided it would be fun to do a taste test at our recent Living Locurto retreat. Trust us when we say, we know what were are talking about when it comes to wines! But we are no wine snobs either. We’re a group of professional party planners, food bloggers, and novice wine aficionados. Everyone agreed that we like wines to be approachable, smooth, and easy to drink.

Note:  We weren’t paid to write this and have no affiliation with any of these brands. It was purely a taste test to find the best canned wines available at our local Texas stores.

The Ultimate Canned Wine Test Winners!

Rosé Canned Wine Taste Test

First up in our taste test were rosé canned wines. We sampled five different brands of rosé and found almost all of them to be pleasing and delicious.

The Best Canned Wine Taste Test. The ultimate canned wine taste test to find the BEST canned wine for you to drink at your next party.

The Rosé Wine Winner: Ava Grace Vineyards Rosé, 13% alc./vol.

We all loved this wine! Ava Grace Vineyards canned rosé wine comes in a very pretty and feminine can. The rosé is a nice color, not too deep and not too light. The rosé smelled perfumy and flowery and the taste was smooth and supple.

Best Canned Wine. The Rosé Wine Winner - Ava Grace Vineyards Rosé

Rosé Wine Runner-Up: Underwood Rosé, 12% alc./vol.

Underwood Rose from Union Wine Company is grown and made in Oregon. We liked this rose because it was very light and almost effervescent. Like the Ava Grace canned rosé, it was also very smooth with a nice finish. It had notes of peach and berries. Overall we thought it was an unpretentious, easy drinking wine which is how every canned wine should be.

 

White Canned Wine Taste Test

We mixed up the varietals when it came to the cans of white wines. As luck would have it, our two favorites were a Chardonnay and a Sauvignon Blanc.

The White Wine Winner: Essentially Geared Wine Company Chardonnay, 13.5% alc./vol.

This canned Chardonnay is dry, slightly fruity, and full-bodied. We all thought this wine would be great paired with a hearty fall cuisine. This wine can go beyond summertime because it is so approachable and drinkable.  Versatile for a canned Chardonnay, it would be fine to drink it alone or with a meal.

Best Canned Wine. The White Wine Winner - Essentially Geared Wine Company Chardonnay

White Wine runner-up: Tangent Sauvignon Blanc, 12% alc./vol.

This Sauvignon Blanc is bright and light. A little sweeter than you might expect with lots of fruity notes. This was a close second to our favorite and it was almost too hard to choose which one we liked better.

 

Red Canned Wine Taste Test

When it came to red canned wines, things took an interesting turn! Up until the reds, most of the wines we tasted were very pleasant. Maybe at this point in our testing our taste buds had enough, but for whatever reason, we did not like canned red wine as much as white or rosé canned wines. That being said, we still found some impressive canned red wines.

The Red Wine Winner: Underwood Pinot Noir, 13% alc./vol.

The first thing we noticed about this canned pinot noir was the deep plum aroma.  Delicious!  The taste did not disappoint. It was a classic, smooth Oregon Pinot Noir with lots of cherry and plum flavors. It was hard to believe it was a canned Pinot Noir.

Best Canned Wine. The Red Wine Winner - Underwood Pinot Noir

Red Wine Runner-Up: We Are California Red Blend, 13% alc./vol.

Red Blends always seem like a safe bet and this canned red blend hit the mark. Tasty notes of black licorice and dark cherry define this very drinkable red in an attractive can.

 

Do you like canned wine?

We heard canned wine was good, but didn’t quite believe the hype. After trying 15 brands of canned wines, we can say we were impressed! Don’t be afraid to try canned wine at your next holiday get together. The convenience and portability are great, but you will not be disappointed by the taste or quality of canned wines.

What is Aperol?

What is Aperol you ask? Well, I had a hard time finding it because it’s so popular right now, but there was ONE bottle left in my local liquor store. I was excited to whip up some of these simple skinny cocktails for you!

Aperol is made in Northern Italy with only 11 percent alcohol. It’s a deep orange color and tastes slightly bitter with a hint of sweet. It tastes like a mix of oranges and grapefruit. I read where it also contains rhubarb. Adding it with Prosecco and a splash of sparkling water makes this refreshing very trendy Aperol Spritz!

This is the basic recipe for an Aperol Spritz. If you like sweet drinks, I’m warning you that it’s very bitter. Feel free to add a splash of simple syrup or sugar.

I wanted to keep mine low calorie, so just squeezed several orange slices into my glass to make it less bitter. I don’t like sparkling water, but with extra fruit, I enjoyed my Aperol Spritz very much! It’s very refreshing!

I’m a small town Oklahoma girl at heart. Even though I have lived in the Dallas, Texas area for over 25 years, I grew up in Oklahoma and still consider it home! I was recently invited to attend The Wine Forum of Oklahoma and wanted to tell you about my trip home. Traveling is one of my favorite things to do and I’m excited to be writing more about my family trips here on the blog.

Oklahoma might not be a place you think of when planning your next vacation, but it should be! There are so many beautiful locations and fun things to do. Today, I’m sharing three of my favorite things to do when I visit my family and friends in Oklahoma.

Cranberry Raspberry Sangria

Over the holidays, I made a new Cranberry Raspberry Sangria that when served at my party was gone within minutes! I thought you might enjoy serving it for your friends as well.

Cranberry Raspberry Sangria made with white wine and raspberry liqueur is an easy and elegant cocktail drink recipe for a party.

Sangria is the easiest cocktail to make for a big crowd, you just dump everything in and forget about it. I’ve made several popular Sangria recipes this past year, but this one is very different. It’s made with white wine and Chambord, one of my favorite raspberry liqueurs. Not only is it a mix of sweet and tart, but it looks very fancy!

Strawberry Plum Rose Sangria Recipe

Fruity and Fresh Strawberry Plum Rosé Sangria. A perfect refreshing party cocktail recipe! LivingLocurto.com

Plums are becoming one of my daughter’s new favorite fruits and we always have them in the house.  To the point where I felt I HAD to use them for some type of recipe on the blog. With summer parties happening, I thought a plum sangria would make a delicious and refreshing drink!

After the popularity of my Tropical Pineapple Sangria (the video has over 2.5 million views on Facebook!!!), I’ve been a little obsessed with trying new flavors of sangria. I have never made a cocktail with rosé wine, so was excited to try it in this new drink recipe.

The good thing about rosé wine is that most people enjoy the light, sweet flavor which will make this Strawberry Plum Rosé Sangria a very popular fruity party drink!

Fruity and Fresh Strawberry Plum Rosé Sangria. A perfect refreshing party cocktail recipe! LivingLocurto.com

Because plums are often tart, I mixed in some sweet strawberries and fresh cherries. This combo with the rosé wine and a little Chambord, black raspberry liqueur, turned out amazing if I do say so myself!

I can’t wait to serve this for the 4th of July! This recipe would be great for all kinds of parties, especially wedding showers, baby showers or birthday parties. Sangria is also perfect for hanging around by the pool as well.

The bright red colors of the fruit, make this not only a tasty drink, but beautiful cocktail!

Fruity and Fresh Strawberry Plum Rosé Sangria. A perfect refreshing party cocktail recipe! LivingLocurto.com

I thought the fruit would be too tart and I would have to add some sugar or simple syrup, but after adding the Chambord and lemon lime soda, my drink was perfect! Not too sweet and just a little tangy from the wine. You can always add sugar if you like a sweeter drink.
