Wine in a Can For Football Tailgaiting?

*** I received this wine as a sample. ***

Hi everyone…and Happy #WineWednesday! Today, I’m tasting four canned wines from Right Now—The Alpine Steam White, the Dry Rosé, the Red Blend Number 8, and the Shimmer Slightly Sweet Rosé Bubbly. You can watch to find out all the details, but here is a hint…I was surprised by the quality of all 4, loved the rosé, thought the bubbly tasted like soda, and would bring all 4 to a tailgate!

Questions of the Day:

  1. Have you had any new canned wines that you’ve enjoyed? Do you drink them?
  2. Are you a football fan? Do you drink wine when you’re watching or do you go for beer or something else?
  3. Are there wine gadgets that you’re interested in or that you recommend that you think I should take a look at?
