7 of the Best Canned Wines Under $10 a Can

Canned wine is the best thing that's happened to wine since the invention of the corkscrew. It's convenient, portable, usually less than $10 a can, and it's a great way to drink wine in places where it isn't usually served, like the beach, the park, or the pool.

Canned wine is a fairly new phenomenon, but it quickly gained popularity in the modern wine world. While the jury is still out on whether canned wine is better than bottles, there are some distinct advantages to the canned variety. Cans are durable, portable and easier to recycle. Plus, they're cheaper than their glass counterparts. In fact, cans are actually a viable option for winemakers who produce high volumes of wine.

It can also be a great way to get your non-vino drinking friends to try something they would normally shy away from. People are often nervous about opening a bottle of wine and drinking it because it can feel like a bit of a commitment.

Canned wines, on the other hand, are unassuming and approachable. Instead of popping a bottle at your next wine party, try popping tabs instead. Here are several unbelievably good canned wines that are easy to share.

The canned rosé from Archer Roose is one of my personal favorites, It's delicious and refreshing all year long. It's a far cry from a basic summer rosé and tastes like much more expensive wine.

Archer Roose has another unique offering worth mentioning, bagnums. While not a can, it's also not a bottle. The packaging is perfect for taking to the park or pool. Each bagnum is equivalent to two bottles of wine. This allows guests to share at their own pace. If you're drinking alone, bagnums will keep the wine fresh for up to five weeks.

There is nothing average about the newest aluminum Fun Wine Hard Bubbly collection. These six, 330 milliliter aluminum bottles are adorned with the work of world-famous Latin Grammy and pop-graffiti artist Miguel Paredes. They've also added an ingredient never seen before in the industry: monk fruit. This allows every 5-ounce pour to contain only 59 calories. This makes indulging all the more enjoyable.

These wine drinks are lightly carbonated and the flavor combinations are intriguing, to say the least.
