Is There Such A Thing As Good Wine In A Can?

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

Hi Everyone, and Happy #WineWednesday. Today, I’m tasting the 2016 Stella Wines​ Pinot Grigio in a can, which I received as a sample and has a suggested retail price of $13 for a 4-pack.  I’ve tried a number of canned wines, but as much as I love the idea, I haven’t been a fan of the ones I tasted. The big question is if this will be different?!  As a side note, though, instead of drinking the wine out of a can, I’m using the Go Vino glasses. Cheers!

Question of the Day:  Have you had this or another canned wine and what did you think of it?

Wine Flash Sale: Cuvée Valérose

Happy #WineWednesday! Spring has finally arrived in DC, so I didn’t want to miss sharing my latest Wines ‘Til Sold Out purchase – a yummy rosé that is perfect for the warm weather. Cheers!

The wine mentioned in the video was the 2017 Cuvée Valérose — $11.  I would give it a 3.5 out of 5 corks.  It’s a great value and is an easy-to-drink wine, but not very complex.

Question of the Day #1: Do you drink rosé all year long or is it mostly a spring and summer wine for you?

Question of the Day #2: Do you buy wine online?  If so, what sites do you use?
