It's A SHE CAN Summer
The Story of SHE CAN
Did you know we have wine in a can? For those of you who do, thank you for all the SHE CAN Wines love. For those who are just finding out about our SHE CAN Wines collection, welcome! Enjoy our McBride Sisters Collection wine quality in the convenience of a can for those on the go. It’s a SHE CAN Summer and we have a fresh NEW flavor! We have also launched our Cans Club - a new kind of wine club created for the woman who's going everywhere. Read on below!
If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you know that SHE CAN Wines is not only a statement, it is a way for us to honor our mothers. The strong and empowered lionesses on the sides of the SHE CAN pay tribute to the women who encouraged and inspired us throughout our lives, our mum & mom. Andréa & I wanted to include a striking design that could remind us everyday of the first women who taught us that we CAN do anything we set our minds to. It was only fitting that they were a focal point on these fun and fab cans.
We consider ourselves to be a pride, the same pride lions live in. A fearless pride and sisterhood that is constantly challenging the norm, inspiring other women to do the same and breaking barriers as we go. We took the lionesses from our McBride Sisters Collection logo and placed an enlarged version on each SHE CAN. Our newest flavor to the SHE CAN sisterhood is Fresh White and is dedicated to Andréa's mums (birth mother and foster mother) so their initials are by the lioness (P.J. & D.H.H.). The SHE CAN Rosé is dedicated to Robin's mom, and her nickname is by the lioness (KOKO). The SHE CAN Spritzers are a tribute to our daughters; you’ll find their initials within the designs on the Island Citrus and Coastal Berry. Can you spot them?
Design is a wonderful way to express a message through illustration, and we’re glad we had the creative opportunity to pay tribute to the special women in our lives.
For this SHE CAN Summer, it’s time to celebrate yourself and the other incredible women who have paved the way for us. SHE CAN is rooted in the ethos of a boundless sisterhood, challenging the status quo of male-dominated industries and focusing on uplifting and supporting female entrepreneurs, creatives and leaders.
Andrea’s and my journey involved looking up to a range of strong women throughout history—our own mothers included—who motivated us to follow our own paths and cultivate a community for women to support and celebrate each other, one great glass of wine at a time.
What started as a wine in a can collection has turned into much more. In 2019, we created the McBride Sisters SHE CAN Fund. At its inception, The McBride Sisters SHE CAN Fund was first developed to promote the professional advancement of women in the wine industry in a concerted effort to help close the gender and race gap. For this year's scholarships, we invited women who have a bold vision for their careers in hospitality, wine and finance, to apply for grants and scholarships for continuing education, leadership coaching and industry conferences. Our impact to date:
Applications for 2021 are now closed. Please check back in Spring 2022 for the next set of scholarship applications.
It’s more than just delicious wine in a can, it’s a loud message. A message to the world that SHE CAN and She Does, every single day. Join the #SHECANSummer movement by following SHE CAN Wines on Instagram and Facebook, share this blog with your friends and spread the word! Embrace the can and empower her path. With wines that go anywhere for the woman who’s going everywhere, "Where will she take you?"

Women Who Embody SHE CAN
Who is the SHE CAN woman? She is creative, bold, unafraid and inspired. She is supportive and encouraging. She is also respectful of her own self-care and the need for downtime.
We look at women such as Simone Biles, a revolutionary athlete, a supportive teammate and an advocate for her own mental health, and see the SHE CAN woman. We look at Katie Ledecky, who made history this year at the Tokyo Olympics by winning six Olympic gold medals, the most won by any woman U.S. olympian ever. Katie also vocally announced how proud she is of Simone Biles. In both her achievements and support, we see the SHE CAN woman.
We look at our mothers, our grandmothers, our sisters, our daughters and friends, and see the SHE CAN woman in all of them.
Where Will She Take You?
The sun is out, flowers are blooming and the opportunity for adventures are endless. The #SHECANSummer is about discovery, excitement and new experiences.
