Putting wine in a can makes it lightweight, unbreakable, and crushable (nice when backpacking out your empties). None of that matters, of course, if it tastes like, well, what you might expect wine in a can to taste like.
Fortunately, good wine does come in a can. We sat down with Master Sommelier Devon Broglie, associate global beverage buyer for Whole Foods, and sampled the canned wines currently available, presented here in appropriate tasting order (sweet to dry).
Some of these wines are easier to find on the shelf than others, although all can be ordered online. Wine in a can is still a new idea, Broglie says, but one he believes will catch on.
