“At the recent North Coast Wine Challenge (NCWC) there was an unexpected victor — a canned wine that won a (double) gold medal with 96 points. “The score was because the wine was that good,” said judge and vintner Nick Goldschmidt.”
Maker Wine Shines The Spotlight On The Winemakers Themselves, Right On The Cans.
“Maker Wine Viognier won double gold/best of class and was rated 96 points. ‘We believe it’s the highest a canned wine has ever been rated in a major competition,’ Hoffman says.”
“Another small-production newcomer to the can scene is Maker Wine, co-founded by Stanford Business School classmates Sarah Hoffman and Kendra Kawala. They’re partnering with boutique California winemakers including Chris Christensen of Bodkin Wines. Hoffman believes cans transcend the wine market.”
“Maker is changing the canned wine game with one of the first canned wine clubs and, perhaps, the only one focused on premium canned wine.”
“The collaboration with MAKER has yielded by far the best canned Pinot Noir I have had the pleasure of tasting.”
“In the mouth, bright raspberry cherry and herb flavors have excellent acidity and a faint tannic backbone, that gives it some nice dimensionality.” – Alder Yarrow
“So far this summer I’ve had a dry, fruity rosé from Christensen Winecraft sipped while reading beside a lake, a delicately floral Viognier from Campovida Wines with my dinner beside the campfire, and a perfectly crushable Pinot Noir from Handley Cellars while taking in the sunset from Mount Hood.”
“In its first year in business, Novato-based Maker Wine Company earned a 96 score plus best-in-class and double-gold awards from 2020 North Coast Wine Challenge for a 2019 barrel-aged viognier made by Campovida winery in Mendocino County.”
“Two other perfect transportable options that I love include Maker’s new sparkling sauvignon blanc – the 250 ml single-serving can is the perfect summer sparkling wine with lemon-lime aromas with citrus and passion fruit flavors.”
“One exciting newcomer is Maker Wine. Both its whites – a Chenin Blanc from an urban winery in Clarksburg, and an organic Viognier from Mendocino – are elegant and moreish. The rosé is a delicious maverick.”
“Try a six-pack of canned wines from the female-founded brand Maker, who partners with premium wineries and skilled makers in the state to highlight their stories and creations.”
“Maker canned wines come from several different small-batch producers, and when you order from them, you’ll get tasting notecards that tell you the story of the specific winemaker who poured their love into that can.”
“The Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc tastes very, very good. But that shouldn’t really be a surprise, given that it’s made by Chris Christensen, a hot name in the wine world and the maker behind Bodkin Wines.”
