Chronic Cellars Set to Crush the Canned Wine Game

Posted on July 23, 2019

Paso Robles, Calif.—This summer, Chronic Cellars will add a bit of can-do spirit. Known for their fun labels and serious wines, the Paso Robles-based winery is adding two 375ml cans with the signature Chronic Cellars vibe. Starting this month, Chronic Cellars joins the growing canned wine segment, which has grown +70% over the last 52 weeks,* with the Chronic Cellars Sparkling Wine and Rosé Wine, both with a $5.99 suggested retail price. Sold individually, each can holds approximately two and half glasses of wine, making them ideal to share and easy to take anywhere. The Chronic Cellars Sparkling and Rosé cans are available in California now and will be released in more markets in 2020.

“The new Sparkling and Rosé reflect what we always try to do here at Chronic Cellars: Create excellent wine in a cool, bold package that is exceptionally shareable and leaves people talking,” explains Chronic Cellars Winemaker and Co-Founder, Josh Beckett.
