Sutter Home’s Mini Bottle Breakdown

15 mini bottle varieties. 4 per pack. Unlimited possibilities.

Sutter Home mini bottles are more than handy; we like to think of them as the greatest party favors ever. With twist-off caps and one for everyone, they’re as equally flavorful as they are fun.

Minis are perfect if you only want one glass and a simple way to share with friends. Whether you’re headed to a tailgate with fellow fans, cozying up on the couch, or off to the beach for a girls’ weekend, grab an assortment of mini bottles to toss in your cooler (or purse!).

To get in the b-ball spirit, we’re back again this year with Mini Bottle Madness. Last year, there was a head-to-head matchup with White Zinfandel and Pink Moscato. We’ll see if there are any bracket busters this year.

For a refresher, we’ve outlined our 15 mini bottles below. Which mini bottle are you rooting for? Let us know your favorite here, and we’ll announce the winner on April 4.
