The Cost: $28 for a 4-pack, $151.20 for a 24-pack. Buy it here!

About this single-serve wine: With the goal of making great craft wines that are affordable and accessible, Union Wine Company created cans of red, white, and rosé wine that taste as contemporary and refreshing as their cans would have you hoping. (They also sell bottles of wine if you’re looking to stock up on both.) All their wines are made in Oregon, which is notably not as sunny and steady, climate-wise, as the typical wine-making locales. This means the Underwood line of wines are vibrant, crisp, earthy, and unique—but also very delicious. Choose a 4-pack or “flat” (that’s 24 cans, and is the equivalent of a case of wine) in one flavor or a variety pack. Wine types included in this line are rosé, bubbly rosé, pinot gris, pinot noir, mei wine, strawberry wine cooler, riesling rader, and straight bubbly water for adding carbonation to your craft cocktails, or just hydrating!

Serving size: A regular serving size of wine is about 150 mL. Union Wine Co.’s Underwood cans are 375 mL—about two and a half glasses, or half a bottle’s worth.

ABV: Ranges from 5.75% to 13%, depending on the type of wine you select.

Is it a subscription?: No

Ships to most of the US. See if they ship to you, and calculate shipping costs, by adding a product to your cart. Shipping to Pittsburgh, PA costs $45.51 for 2-day shipping or $68.50 for overnight shipping, both via FedEx. Local pickup available in some parts of Oregon and Washington.

Comments (28)

  1. I’ve tried Le Grand Verre (LGV Wines) and loved my little 4 pack, made even better by the first set getting a $30 discount! You can also skip months right on the site.

  2. Tough crowd… Thank you for writing this Christine! I enjoyed reading it. If it included craft ciders I would have enjoyed it even more!

    • Ooh this is a great suggestion, Adee! Have you tried any that you suggest we add, or are you looking for some yourself? 🙂

  3. Only 3 out of 10 are subscriptions? This website seems to have moved away from its purpose.

    • Thank you for the feedback. Canned wine is a new and growing category, and we hope more subscription options will become available soon. We’ll also be sure to keep an eye out for more subscription options to add in the future!

      • I have to agree with tpop. I read this site for subscription service information and the majority of this post was not about subscription services. I am angry that I wasted my time with it, frankly. The readers were not thought about in this creative process at all and that is pretty messed up.

      • Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Heidi. We will absolutely take it into consideration for future lists.

  4. I wish I’d been able to help with the tastings! Looks like fun. I admit I usually just go to trader Joe’s where it’s from $1.50 per can to $4. Even my overpriced liquor store is $3 and the fancy wine store is $6. I’m sure some of these are better tasting.

    • *Quietly weeps,* Trader Joe’s is where I do all my grocery shopping, but sadly they don’t carry alcohol in the state where I live (there are silly laws around it). When we visit our friends in Michigan we always stock up!

  5. I can tell a lot of work & love was put into this piece, but to be honest, this kind of content is not what I’m looking for from MSA.

    MSA has been falling way behind on actual subscription box content. It’s not the place to go for spoilers any more, and often there is incorrect or out-of-date information. Reader comments about these issues often go unread or unacknowledged.

    • Yeah this is so strange.

    • I agree with you about the content falling behind, but not about this particular article. I appreciate reading reviews on things I might not have discovered otherwise. I think the “best of” lists are a great way to introduce people to a large variety of things in a smaller footprint. A couple of them are subscriptions, too.

      It’s clear that MSA lost quite a few of their reviewers when Liz stepped down and I would think that is why they are falling behind. I feel like a lot of the staff were dedicated to Liz. It was obvious to me that Liz probably didn’t feel that same sense of satisfaction as when she first started MSA. I’m hoping they find their way and continue to be successful

      • If people want to read it, that’s cool. If just seemed a bit off topic to me.

    • I absolutely agree

    • it’s been like this ever since Liz sold the company. nothing to be said … it’s no longer the place for spoliers. And they DON’T answer emails

    • Sad to say I feel the same and have been looking for alternative sites that stay more current with subscription details, but haven’t found one that I like yet and am still hopeful for MSA to come around

    • Hi Marion! Thank you so much for sharing this feedback. Because wine subscriptions are popular on MSA, we thought this would be a fun, seasonal way to nod to that topic (and, we always hope to be helpful in introducing our readers to brands & experiences we think you’ll like). We’d love to hear any additional thoughts you may have about what you’d like to see more of from us. Please shoot us a message at [email protected]!

      • why email? they don’t receive responses

      • I’m so sorry you’ve had frustrating experiences with emailing us, Michelle. If you include “Feedback” in the subject line, we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for your message and respond to your thoughts.💛

  6. I love wines, but these all seem SO expensive (and I live in NYC). I have tried Loverboy but don’t think it’s worth the price and it’s just ok.

    • Glad I’m not the only one who was put off by the prices

    • Sigh, you are right, and folks felt similarly with many brands included on the cold brew & iced coffee list. For me personally I am always looking for the cheapest possible way to imbibe (hello, boxed wine!) but I can totally see myself splurging on a small case of one of these as a little pick-me-up since there’s not a ton else to look forward to this summer.

      Also! Thanks for input on Loverboy, we actually haven’t tried most of these drinks yet and were hoping people would share their experience in the comments! Any single-serve alcohol brands you’ve tried that you love & feel is worth the cost?

  7. This post sent me down a rabbit hole and I ended up ordering from Five Drinks Co! Check them out!

    • That one looks super affordable! Thanks for mentioning it!

    • I added Five Drinks Co. to the list today, Caity, thanks for the rec!

  8. Lots of great ones I’ll have to try. Two Chicks is my favorite right now! They have a paloma, margarita, elderflower spritz, and more. So yummy and the cans are pretty, too!

    • Never underestimate the joy of a pretty can, right? Just looked Two Chicks up and loooving what I’m seeing!

    • Thanks again for your suggestion, Megan, I ended up adding Two Chicks to the list!
