Summer is upon us and VINNY is making the case for canned wine! The New York based wine brand has added a second bubbly beverage to the mix with the recent launch of their VINNY Rosé.
Founded last year by leading sommelier and Wine Director of the Nomad, Thomas Pastuszak, VINNY is a brand that delivers top-notch taste in the convenience of a can. Their new rosé launches on the heels of their classic bubbly wine, VINNY Blanc, which debuted last summer as a delicious blend of Grüner Veltliner and Dry Riesling.
“I love rosé and drink it year-round and the category is more exciting now than ever: so when I launched VINNY last summer and the brand created so much buzz, I knew I needed to create a pink bubbly sibling to the classic VINNY”, founder Thomas Pastuszak told us.
An industry aficionado, Thomas has three wine labels under his belt thus far, including Terrassen, Empire Estate and his most recent venture, VINNY. His knack for wine has granted him achievements such as Forbes' 30 Under 30 and Food & Wine’s Sommeliers of the Year.
VINNY Rosé is a product of New York’s Finger Lakes and gives an updated take on the classic summer beverage everyone knows and loves. The wine includes notes of strawberry, lemon, peach and a refreshing blend of Cabernet Franc, Pinot Gris and Dry Riesling. The bubbly beverage is one of the most versatile on the market and can be enjoyed straight from the can or on the rocks. VINNY is a wonderful addition to a spritz or mimosa and those who prefer a cocktail can simply add a splash to their favorite liqueur for something crisp and delicious.
Now is the time for canned wine and with four-packs priced at $20, VINNY makes for an easy pick-me-up as far as summer beverages go. From casual weekends at the beach to backyard barbecues, afternoons at the pool and chic summer soirees, this is the one drink to take with you everywhere all season long.
“VINNY is meant to be fun and exciting, born out of my passion for great wine, but with an accessibility that can fit any lifestyle”, Thomas added. The brand embodies the high standards of winemaking Pastuszak has built his career upon, along with the ease and convenience of a canned beverage.
Gone are the days of breakable bottles this summer, VINNY’s is here to show wine lovers how crisp, convenient and crush-able canned wines truly can be.
