Celebrate National Rosé Day with Anchor and Hope Wine
Rhode Island-based wine négociant Anchor and Hope offers canned wines in five varieties: rosé, sauvignon blanc, grüner veltliner, Chardonnay, riesling and pinot noir.
Saturday is National Rosé Day, and we will celebrate by sipping rosé from Anchor and Hope. The wine business is a Rhode Island-based négociant, which is a French term for a wine merchant that gathers the produce of smaller growers and sells the resulting wine under its own label. Anchor and Hope bottles and cans two types of rosé, including the 2020 rosé, which is a Cabernet Franc-based blend with flavors of strawberries and raspberries, peppery notes and floral aromatics made with grapes grown by Millstone Vineyard in Rheinhessen, Germany, and the 2019 Pinot Rosé, a dry blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc with flavors of white peach and cherry from Kehr Vineyard in Rheinhessen, Germany.
Anchor and Hope’s 2020 Rosé is available at stores in bottles and cans as well as at restaurants, including Bywater and Waterdog in Warren, Bayberry Beer Hall in Providence, Lord Hobo Brewing Co. in Woburn, Massachusetts and Moe’s Tavern in Lee, Massachusetts.
Anchor and Hope just re-branded its wines in cans under the Anchor and Hope name. It’s not always convenient to bring a glass bottle of wine out and about on summer adventures, but the cans solve that problem.
They offer five varieties in cans, including the 2020 rosé as well as sauvignon blanc, grüner veltliner, Chardonnay, riesling and pinot noir. They are sold in a two-pack “pak-tech” at stores and the plastic tops keep the top of the can clean, so you don’t have to worry about sipping straight from the can. The two-packs retail between $11 and $12, but some retailers also sell them as singles.
Add them to your summer cooler for a backyard bash and then you don’t have to worry about pouring wine for your guests or (gasp!) broken wine glasses.
