It can be hard finding ways to beat the Texas heat, but sitting with a cool glass of wine certainly helps. While the idea of canned wines hasn’t always been well received, there are a lot of reasons why canned wines just make sense. For starters, cans are recycled and made with recycled materials. This means it is better for the Earth. The wineries offering canned wines generally are offering wines that are organic, gluten-free, low carb, or that have the ability to accommodate various dietary needs.
Also, think of all the ways that canned wine succeeds where a bottle and glass might not. Imagine going to your favorite swimming hole. You might be able to relax in the sand, but a glass of wine won’t be able to be with you. You could bring a cooler filled with ice and chilled cans of wine though. Having the ability to pull back a tab and carry your wine with you is a great option suitable for most activities.
So, with that in mind, here are some of the best canned wines that are currently on the market. Each of the options here are able to be shipped around the country and they are reasonably priced. Wine lovers should definitely give some of them a try. You won’t be sorry you did.

Lubanzi Wines recently began offering canned wines in addition to the more traditional bottles. The selection is limited to Chenin Blanc or a Red Blend.

House Wines are produced in Washington state. Like many of the wineries on this list they offer wine in cans, but also in bottles and boxes.
