The main draw of the Italian sparkling wines is the price (we see you, Two Buck Chuck). Trader Joe's customers can pick up a four-pack for a mere $3.99. It's the perfect price point because, let's be honest, you're probably going to sip your way right through a lot more than four of these 6-ounce cans during the myriad outdoor festivities planned between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The grocer notes that the aluminum packaging also makes these babies easier to tote around than a traditional wine bottle and more convenient to recycle. Finally, the planet can reap the benefits of your wine-drinking tendencies.
Simpler Wines is rolling out a white and a rosé for the summer season: Simpler Wines White boasts "notes of juicy honeydew and fresh cut herbs provide sweet sippability" that go best with breads and a good hunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano. Simpler Wines Rosé features "elegant, mineral notes and red fruit flavors," which complement pasta, seafood, dessert, or heck, just go ahead and enjoy it sans any food accompaniment. Cans come in millennial pink (natch) and bright blue hues.
The only heartbreaking downside to these otherwise-perfect canned wine creations? According to Tasting Table, the packs are available only in New York City's Union Square store. So, New Yorkers, prepare for that in-store line to get even longer, while the rest of the world holds a vigil as we await nationwide dissemination of this soon-to-be summer staple.
