Yes, We Canned.

Hi there,

We’re the ladies of Maker, here to serve up award-winning wine for discerning palates and the good of human kind.

Alcohol laws dating back to prohibition make it difficult for small wineries to get their wines to people like you — we’re here to change that. Now you can enjoy award-winning wine from small producers — shipped directly to you in svelte, sexy, single-serving cans.

We started Maker to offer premium wine sans the snobbery. To highlight interesting varietals crafted by award-winning small producers. To tell the story of the producer that hand crafted your wine. And to package up “wine for one” in earth-conscious cans. Because we believe high-end wine isn’t just for the wealthy, distribution shouldn’t just be for the big guys, and great stories—like great wines—are meant to be shared.

High-end wine slipped into something more comfortable.

Here’s more about what drives our wine.

Premium, bottle-quality

These are high quality wines found in the bottles of the best small producers. Maker wines are vintage, varietal, and often vineyard specific: terroir-driven wines that the winemaker is proud to put their name on.

Diverse makers

We partner with diverse, small-batch makers to elevate their underrepresented voices and premium wines.

Unique varietals and regions

We love finding lesser-known regions and grapes that geeky wine people adore, but that your average rosé sipper may not know.

Zero Sugar, Low Carb

We prioritize wine producers that use organic and sustainable farming practices. Our wines are fermented to dry, with no residual sugar and under five carbs per serving.

Loved by us, vetted by experts

We receive hundreds of samples for Maker. Our wines have to pass our Can Club panel and industry expert panel to make it into a Maker can.

Serious Can Appeal

Our cans are better for the wine, better for the world, and better for you.

Better for the wine

No light exposure, no oxidation, and no corked wines. These cans made specifically for wine don’t impact the taste.

Better for the world

100% recyclable, cork-free cans have a smaller carbon footprint than bottles and need less protective packaging to ship.

Better for you

We took the perfect pour and canned it. A single-serving, park-ready, picnic-ready beverage you can enjoy anytime.

Zoe Victor

Co-founder, The Wine

Zoe works with our winemakers to get these glorious wines into cans and dreams up where they’re going next - from nailing fulfillment to planning our expansion. Is it something crazy complicated that no one else can figure out? Yeah, Zoe’s got this. She spent her career in Biz Ops within the healthcare industry - she's always wanted to have a positive impact. Now she CAN by supporting small producers.

Sarah Hoffman

Co-founder, The Words

Sarah is the storyteller, the dreamer, the ideas gal that brings these wines and stories to life online. You’ll find her writing snarky headlines or thinking of ways to make our Can Clubbers smile. If you text the Wine Line, chances are it’s Sarah on the other end. She’s always been a little obsessed with supporting small producers - from leading Food and Bev marketing at Eventbrite to hosting underground supper club dinners in San Francisco.
