Washington’s Top Canned Wines

Did you know Washington is the second-largest wine producer in the country, just behind California? Not surprisingly, the state offers a first-class lineup of pool- and picnic-ready canned wines to wind down the final weeks of summer.

Alexandria Nicole Cellars

In the Horse Heaven Hills in South Central Washington is where small-lot Alexandra Nicole Cellars comes to life. Its two premium canned wine brands—aptly named Adulting sparking wine and Wander—each have a red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon-backed blend), a white wine (Roussanne, Marsanne and Sauvignon Blanc blend) and a rosé (Counoise-backed blend) in its arsenal.

House Wine

House Wine was brought to life by ex-rock ‘n roll manager and award-winning Washington winemaker Charles Smith in 2004 in Walla Walla. At the time, Smith was inspired by everyday European table wines and went on to become an early adopter in canned wine. Outside of pinots and chards, House Wine also offers season-friendly canned cocktails and bubbles.


Waterbrook, from winemaker John Freeman, is a state-of-the-art winery, tasting room and 49-acre estate vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley AVA. Its premium canned wines are equal to two glasses of wine, and their minimal style are oh-so chic for a summer picnic.

Browne Family Vineyards

A family-owned winery with tasting rooms located in the heart of downtown Walla Walla and Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square, Browne Family Vineyards is also under the leadership of Freeman. The refreshing canned Chardonnay pairs perfectly with the likes of fish tacos, summery salads and other poolside foods.

Goose Ridge Estate Vineyard and Winery

With its rich and long history, Goose Ridge is one of Washington’s most renowned names in winemaking, producing 40,000 cases of wine each year. Its Cascadian Outfitters brand of canned wine features the limited-edition Cascadian Rainbow Rosé Bubbles, with flavors of strawberry and raspberry and the whimsical image of a wine-toting Sasquatch gracing the can.


David Merfeld started as an Iowa farmer before becoming one of the most recognized names in Washington wine. Via its two-packs of canned wine—Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are available—is the perfect window in MERF’s lineup of wallet-friendly vino.
