Portable Rosé Taste Test
After enjoying the Notorious Pink Rosé, I’ve been on a mission to try more Rosés! As the weather warms up, Rosé becomes the perfect wine option and I thought it would be fun to try it in a different form. Along with warm weather comes picnics, outdoor concerts and other fun activities! Canned or boxed wines are a great option for these events, so today I am sharing a taste test of several Rosés in portable packages.
Here are the results!
Wine Cube Rosé
Packaging: 500 ml carton with a screw top that’s easy to open. The package says it’s three glasses, but I would say it’s more like 2 ;). The great thing about this box is that it’s resealable. I do worry about the durability if you packed it with other heavy stuff.
Taste: I found this one to have the least flavor. I could tell it was Rosé, but it just didn’t have much to it.
Overall score: 5/10, I wouldn’t say no if someone offered me a glass of this but it wouldn’t be my first choice to buy again.
Sofia Coppola Brut Rosé
Packaging: 187 ml pop top can with a straw. These cans are single servings, which makes them perfect. They also come with little bendy straws, so it’s like an adult juice box, so fun! :).
Price: $16.99 for a 4-pack
Taste: This one is crisp and dry with some bubbles, so it’s perfect for warm weather.
Overall Score: 8/10, I would definitely buy this one again for the taste and the fun straw!
House Wine Rosé
Packaging: This 500 ml can with a normal pop top doesn’t make it ideal for storing the rest for later. This is probably only a good option if you are going to share, or know you’ll drink it all yourself in one sitting. That’s actually not hard, since this wine is light, refreshing, and goes down easy! There’s also a bubbly version that I can’t wait to try!
Taste: Light and sweet with a subtle berry flavor.
Overall Score: 8/10, this one was my favorite for flavor. I gave it the same score as the Coppola because the packing isn’t as fun.
So there you have it, some good options for your next summer picnic. What’s your favorite portable wine?
