MANCAN, the first exclusive wine-in-a-can company, has unveiled a new Rosé blend. MANCAN Rosé rounds out the company’s current portfolio of Red blend, White blend, and Fizz (the company’s semi-sparkling White blend).
This is likely very welcomed news for many Washingtonians. According to data released in August 2017 by the direct-to-consumer wine discovery platform Wine Access, Rosé is the fastest growing wine varietal in the U.S. It reported that in 2015, one out of every 510 bottles sold on Wine Access was Rosé but saw that number grow in 2017 to one out of every 36 bottles, which represents a 1,400 percent increase. It also found that wine consumers in Washington D.C. drinks more Rosé per capita than anywhere else in country, drinking eight times more of the light pink wine than the State of California.
Made from 100% California Chardonnay and Zinfandel grapes, MANCAN Rosé is described as having notes of light watermelon with great character and a bright texture. It is available online and at select retailers in DC including Wagshal’s, Barmy Wine & Liquors, Dupont Circle Wines & Liquor, and Angels Share Wine & Liquors. It has a suggested retail price of $4.99.
Perfect as your everyday go-to, whether at the beach, a BBQ, a sporting event or just enjoying time with friends, MANCAN Rosé makes drinking great quality wine as easy as cracking open a can. Each can of Rosé features an illustration of the historic Ohio City Firehouse, where the company is headquartered, and the brand’s mascot Gracey the dog.
All MANCAN wine cans are specially lined to lock in the flavor profiles and prevent any metallic taste.
“Since we launched in the fall of 2015, we have heard from our customers that an awesome Rosé with universal drinkability was something they wanted,” said MANCAN co-founder Graham Veysey. “In the spirit of taking the chore out of drinking wine, we were intentional in keeping it simple and think that our Rosé blend fits with that convenient approach.”
Since launching its first varietals in 2015, MANCAN has received Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s coveted “Best Buy” accolades for its White blend and its Fizz.
