Smart branding, new technology, and an open-minded approach has catapulted young wine entrepreneurs into creating another market entirely, even catching the curiosity of seasoned sommeliers.
There is a sea of options but the stand-outs are pretty clear.
Underwood from Oregon in the United States was one of the first-comers to make a splash in wine but others have quickly followed suit.
Alloy Wine Works is from California and one of the most prolific brands, with excellent reviews on taste.
Another darling in the canned wine world, is Lubanzi from South Africa. A hot spot for incredible wines, it's no surprise to see South Africa at the top of the list.

There are countless canned wines being produced around the world. From France to Canada to Australia, everyone is getting in on the game.

I supposed when you get these two together, anything can happen.
