Maker is premium canned wine from independent winemakers. We source award-winning wines from the best small producers in California. Each can of wine highlights the story of the small producer who made it, and represents a different maker and region that we love.
We prioritize wine producers from diverse backgrounds that use organic and sustainable farming practices. Our wines are fermented to dry, with zero grams of sugar, and minimal sulfur additions. The wine is not “changed” or “dumbed down” for the can — it is the same award-winning wine you can find in bottles at the makers’ wineries.
Event Zoom link and calendar invitations will be sent via email a few days after registration.
While we encourage enjoying your Maker wine out of a wine glass to truly experience the aromas and taste of the wine, feel free to enjoy it straight from the can as well!
If you’re not completely over-the-moon, where-were-these-wines-all-my-life excited about your first experience with Maker, we will refund you in full. That’s how confident we are that you will love these wines!
