CHRIS CARRABBA

The lead singer-songwriter from Dashboard Confessional recently developed his own canned wine brand. “It’s almost impossible to share a truly exceptional bottle of wine at a concert due to glass restrictions, so I sought out how I could combine music and wine in a more accessible fashion. Bottle quality wine in a can,” he said in a press release. Available in five varietals, these cans may just be the next go-to concert drink.
