“We believe the premium wine drinker has been searching for a low abv option that holds the true varietal characteristics of the wine grown in the region. Being sourced from the best vineyards in The Columbia Valley of Washington State, giving it a delicious and lighter take on canned wines without sacrificing the quality of the grapes that go into it.” – BJ McCaslin, Founder, Coastal Spritz
BJ McCaslin has been a lifelong beverage and hospitality entrepreneur. After selling his last brand Vita Coco Cafe, he dove right back into wine and spirits after being inspired during a trip in New Orleans — his true passion is innovating with liquid to lips. He saw the brand vision, and industry gap – and took the steps to bring it to life.
“Coastal is pioneering light wine with pure premium varietals whilst spirit based are all cocktails. So we are basically taking really premium wine and making sure our consumers get the core varietal characteristics they love to taste when drinking their favorite brand of full ABV wine. For example, most wine coolers are sold only in 4 packs and as 8.2 oz cans. Coastal is offered as 4, 6, and 12 packs, in 12 oz cans. We see that as a category advantage and the catalyst to grow the wine base by cross merchandising with Spirit based RTDs and FMBs.” – BJ McCaslin, Brand Founder
