Great for on the go fun and outdoor activities, these organic wines are made with off the beaten path grapes like Montepulciano, Grillo and Nero d’Avola that come in a travel-ready can. It’s a great addition for any cooler or beach bag, allowing for easy transportation to any summer gathering. (It’s also very incognito, if need be :). They were a beach essential on my recent trip to the Bahamas!
