Gone are the days when drinking wine on-the-go required lugging around a heavy glass bottle and corkscrew. Haven’t you heard? You can buy good (like, actually good) wine in cans and lightweight boxes, similar to the packaging of our other favorite go-to, but much less important beverages, beer and coconut water. So whether you’re getting ready for a weekend on the water or preparing for a picnic in the park, it’s time to invest in a six-pack of rosé.
