Can It!

Used to be, it was only beer that came in cans. Then, in 2003, canned wine made its debut when Francis Ford Coppola Winery released its Sofia Blanc de Blancs in 187ml cans with straws attached. It was a move that launched a trend, and today canned wines are a $28 million industry. Here are some we recently tasted and liked. All are available in Ohio.
