5 Local Canned & Boxed Wines to Drink this Summer

We tasted a bunch of boxed and canned wines and picked out the best - for your portable pleasure.

Canned and boxed wines are all the rage this summer. They’re portable – you can pop them in your backpack for a post hike, mountaintop toast or enjoy them at the park or poolside, where glass cups and bottles are not permitted. Even better? Most canned and boxed wines are under 14%, making them great session sippers for a long day in the sun. However, all these perks don’t mean a thing unless what’s inside tastes good. I tasted 15 boxed and canned wines produced in Sonoma, Napa & Mendocino counties – click through the gallery above for my five picks for the best to sip this summer.
