Ratings Breakdown

quality

These certainly are not traditional table wines, but they are not meant to be. Plus, they are more carb and calorie conscious. There was no reason to believe at any time during the testing process that these were not the highest quality canned wines that you could get.

value

At between $3-$6 a can, these are a great value. Especially to support a fun, equality driven company.

customer experience

11.9% alcohol by volume wines that come in cans, offer variety, and are great for day drinking. What’s not to love?

brand

Female owned and driven, Bev makes a great quality and unique product about which they are passionate. It has made a niche in the market accordingly. They really know who they are as a company that promotes fun and responsible drinking with values of vulnerability, candor, accountability, kindness, and passion.

Who Is Bev?

Bev was founded to help break that glass ceiling for women, in business and beyond, and especially in the alcohol industry which has been traditionally male-dominated.  Promoting female empowerment, the company proudly advertises being “Made By Chicks and Cool Dudes.” Bev-Team

The company puts that mission into action, being female founded and driven. Founder and CEO Alix Peabody founded Bev as part accident, part necessity. After graduating from Dartmouth and working for a hedge fund in New York City, she switched coasts to join the tech scene in San Francisco. Then a rare medical condition sidetracked her with over a year and half of surgeries and hospital stays. Swamped with medical bills, she began throwing ticketed daytime parties at a family home in Sonoma. 

These became far more successful than she had anticipated, and for reasons she had not foreseen. She now says about those parties that “that was when I really realized that there was a different way that we could build more female-dominated social spaces. The energy of those parties was so much different than the frat life [of Dartmouth] or even the New York City finance life or the tech life that I’d been a part of. If the women are having fun, everybody’s having fun.”

Bev Wine Story

Seeing a business opportunity, she cashed out her 401k (taking a big tax hit), bought way more rosé than the average person ever would, contacted a previous date whose roommate turned out to be a wine supplier, and the Bev startup was born in 2017.

Peabody as a millennial is social media savvy, and Bev comes with her own unique feminine approach to colors, packaging, naming, and product development. The company later secured $7 million in investments in 2019 through the  Founders Fund, a high-profile investment and development firm. Made-By-Chicks

The once fledgling startup is now being widely distributed and has its own subscription service. Bev as a company creates what it calls a “community of entrepreneurs, creatives, and freelancers” with a goal of “building connections that educate, create, and inspire.” 

It’s refreshing to see a company that unapologetically embraces values of vulnerability, candor, accountability, kindness, and passion.

Bev Blanc Shop

Blanc (8-Pack)

She’s zippy, dry, and a lil’ fizzy with aromatics of crisp green apple, white nectarine, and a light, fresh citrus finish. she’s never afraid to speak her mind and is a self-care queen! Spend a night out with blanc and let your hair down!

Bev Rose Shop

Rosé (8-Pack)

She wears whatever the [email protected]#$% she wants. she calls you a lyft home. Spend a night out with rosé and have a hell of a time.

Bev Wines Taste Testing

In the interests of full disclosure, I’ve never had canned wine before.

I have of course consumed traditional wine from a glass bottle.  I have imbibed a great deal of wine in my day, just never from a can. I’m also well acquainted with other canned alcoholic beverages. So I figure that qualifies me to test out wine in a can.

I thought that these wines would all be of nice quality, taste good, and be refreshing. Which they were. What did surprise me was that all of the wines were fizzy or carbonated in some way, some of them more than others.Bev-Rose-Glass

I drank a few of these cans throughout the testing time, and I always enjoyed them. We had many different options to choose from, including:

On the website, each varietal is personified like a different kind of woman, and comes in its own brightly colored can—all part of founder and CEO Peabody’s way of bringing her own female voice to the traditionally male-dominated alcohol industry. 

So how did they go over in a social setting?Bev Canned Wine Reviews

I took a bunch of these on a group camping trip to take a survey on tasting. We loved the convenience of just being able to throw them in a cooler and have them whenever we wanted. 

The group all enjoyed them, although one person did say that they would rather just have a glass of wine. For reference, these folks were all 40 years old and above. Most said that they would buy these at the store and that the best thing about them is that it came in the convenience of a can.Bev Wine Taste Test

Some impressions of the wine itself:

  • The Sauvignon Blanc is fruity and has a note of green apple, which I really liked.
  • The Pinot noir has a little bit of a pomegranate or citrus taste while being a little bit dry.
  • The Pinot Grigio has some grapefruit notes and is refreshing. 
  • The Glitz wines come in really sparkly cans and are much more like champagne. I could see myself drinking these at the beach or on a sunny spring or fall afternoon. 

Just to make sure we fully tested the Bev wines as the responsible reviewers we are, we drank these during the day, and at night, and during camping, and….you get the idea. I never felt like I was sick or hung over from these. 

Pro tip: Really great for day drinking!

For volume reference, 4 cans equals 1.3 bottles (750ML) of traditional bottled wine. Bev-Pinot-Noir-Glass

I am still not sure how I felt about slightly fizzy wine. I’m pretty traditional when it comes to wine drinking so I sort of wanted one that was not fizzy. That being said, that is a personal preference, not a reflection on the Bev products. 

Added benefits include that each can is:

  • Only 160 calories per can (100 calories per serving)
  • Zero sugar
  • Only 3 grams of carbs
  • Non-GMO.
  • RECYCLABLE!

Bev wines are 11.9% ABV, and each can holds 8.4 oz of wine (a glass and a half!)

All in all, I was pleased with these and so were my comrades-in-testing.

bev gris shop

Gris (8-Pack)

She’s bright and a lil’ fizzy with light and refreshing notes of elderflower, pear, and a zesty grapefruit finish. She loves goofy dancing. she becomes best friends with everybody’s pets. She’s cute, but can cut anyone who messes with you! spend a night out with gris and have a hell of a time.

Are Bev Wines Good Quality?

For adult beverages that come in convenient cans, it’s hard to beat Bev.Bev-Blanc-Glass

No, we are not talking traditional imported wines for a luxurious dinner out, but that is not what Bev aims to do. Bev wants to provide a fun drink at a great price, made from sweet California wines, to add to social gatherings—and at that, it hits the mark quite well.

bev glitz Shop

Glitz (8-Pack)

Bow down because the queen is back and this time as a Bev club exclusive! Nothing’s too much for Glitz – she’s all dressed up and ready to celebrate. What we love about her most is her outlook on the world: silver linings and sparkles. Zero sugar and all the glam, what more could you ask for!?

Are Bev Wines Worth It?

I would say so, especially at the subscription price. Each can runs $3-$6 averaged out per can, depending on the quantity ordered. Bev Wine Cost

For example, the Bev Gris Pinot Grigio currently will cost you:=

  • $49/8 pack, $39 on Bev Club = $6.13 or $4.88/can
  • $99/24 pack, $79 on Bev Club = $4.13 or $3.29/can
  • $190/48 pack, $152 on Bev Club = $$3.96 or $$3.17/can

Considering that each can is 1.68 regular servings (over a glass and a half), and that most wines will run you more than any of these prices for even one glass, the Bev products offer definite value. 

Add in the recyclable convenience of the can and the fun of the fizz, and you have yourself a great deal.

Bev Glam Shop

Glam (8-Pack)

Glam has entered the chat!! The sparkling rose of your dreams with tasting notes of passion fruit, delicate red berries, and a white peach finish. Glam is your inner superhero. Glam is your alter ego. Here to remind you that being glamorous is so much more than what’s on the outside (even if that’s a glitter box!) & that true confidence comes from within.
