Now You Can Get Rosé By the Keg

Honestly, we’re shocked it took this long to become a thing.

What’s better than a bottle of rosé (at least if you value quantity)? How about a keg of rosé?

Long Island winery Lieb Cellars offers five "fresh, light, dry, fruit-forward" wines (a red blend, a sauvignon blanc, an unoaked chardonnay, a white merlot and a rosé described as having "notes of guava and peach blossom followed by flavors of strawberry and watermelon") under its Bridge Lane Wines label, and they are all available in keg format, as well as in a bottle (750ml), box (3L) or can (375ml ).

Each full-on fully recyclable heavy-duty blue-plastic keg that holds 19.5 liters of sippable, shareable, sustainably grown, "small batch" wine -- the equivalent of 26 bottles or 130 glasses, according to the Bridge Lane Wine website.

The kegged wine is "great for big parties or backyard wedding[s] – especially when you don’t want to deal with cleaning up bottles," the site notes.

The keg, which will run you $240 (or about $10 per bottle’s worth), will last only two days if you use a manual tap – so you’ll definitely need to invite a lot of friends.

But if you use a "wine-certified kegerator" (which, alas, do not come cheap), Bridge Lane says a keg will last for two whole months after tapping.

Sounds like just the way to tap into a long, lazy summer of sipping rosé without ever having to run to the wine shop.
