We Rated 8 On-Trend Canned Rosé Wines Just in Time for Summer

Rating Canned Rose Wines

Of the things that make you think summer, is there anything better than a beautiful rosé wine? Canned wines are practically packaged — they’re smaller, won’t break like glass bottles, don’t require a bottle opener, and contain multiple servings. Cans are also easier to recycle and have a smaller carbon footprint than glass bottles.

We sampled (and rated on a scale of one to 10) eight canned rosé wines. Read on for our reviews.

1. Alloy Wine Works Everyday Rosé, California 375ML

$30 for a four pack at alloywineworks.com

canned rose: Alloy Wine Works Everyday Rosé

This was one of our favorites, with mild notes of watermelon, guava, and grapefruit. Throw in a straw and your picnic is made.

7/10

2. Essentially Geared Rosé, California 375ML

$6.99 available at Whole Foods

canned rose: Essentially Geared Rosé

Essentially Geared’s Rosé had the strongest tasting notes of all the wines we sampled. It was floral and sweet, with a deep orange color. Pink starburst is what Essentially Geared compares it to and we have to agree. If you like your wine sweeter, this is your go-to!

5/10

3. Underwood Rosé, Oregon 375ML

$6.50 (plus shipping) at drizly.com

canned rose: Underwood Rosé

Underwood was one of the first wineries to enter the canned wine game and they have always been a crowd favorite for a reason. Their rosé is a classic, with notes of strawberry and peach.

9/10

4. Margerum Grenache Rosé, California 500ML

$11.99 at thewinecountry.com

canned rose: Margerum Grenache Rosé

This was the biggest can we found, containing more than half of a bottle of wine. This beautiful grenache rosé is from Santa Barbara County and was a big hit during our tasting. It is light and refreshing, with notes of summer roses.

8/10

5. Simpler Wines Rosé, Australia 375ML

$2.99 available at Trader Joe’s

canned rose: Simpler Wines Rosé

If you are in a pinch, swing by Trader Joe’s for this canned rosé. It is fruity and slightly watery, with notes of strawberry. If you can find their often sold-out slim can of sparkling rosé, go with that!

4/10

6. Pure Provence Rosé by Mirabeau, France 250ML

$5.99 available at Whole Foods

canned rose: Pure Provence Rosé by Mirabeau

This dry rosé had a nice balance of watermelon and strawberry, with a slight bite on the tongue. Its slim can is very portable, making it perfect for adventures.

6/10

7. Underwood Rosé Bubbles, Oregon 350ML

$28 for a four pack at unionwinecompany.com or $5.99 at bestwinestore.com

canned rose: Underwood Rosé Bubbles

If you’re looking for a bubbly rosé, this was our favorite. It is lighter and brighter than Underwood’s still rosé but still brings the flavor with watermelon and peach.

8/10

8. Presto Sparkling Rosé, Italy

$3.99 available at Whole Foods

canned rose: Presto Sparkling Rosé

We found this sparkling rosé to be very sour. The bubbles were nice and it was refreshing, but it wasn’t what we were looking for.

3/10

Our overall favorite?

canned rose (Underwood)

Underwood Rosé, with its bright flavor and drinkability, takes home top honors, with Margerum Grenache Rosé as the close runner-up. The next time you’re left staring at the endless display of canned wine options at the store, grab these and we promise you won’t be disappointed.
