Brake out of the bottle

 

Boxed wine is the way to go! Everyone’s first boxed wine usually consumed was Franzia because of the cheap cost and large quantity.  This was a staple on my college grocery list. The wine industry has caught on to the brilliance of creating wines that can be boxed but don’t lack in quality or taste.

Lately I have heard about boxed wine from friends and drank about just as much boxed wine as bottled wine.

There are benefits box over bottle:

  1. Lasts longer than a bottle. Typically stays fresh for 6 weeks or so.
  2. Cheaper! Typically a box is equivalent to 3-4 bottles and saves you money buying in bulk.
  3. Easy to adventure with. You can take a box anywhere without worrying about the glass shattering. Some even have a handle for carrying!

Black Box Wines: 

Grapes are harvested from world-class appellations, including California’s storied wine country and the acclaimed vineyards of Argentina and Chile.
Black Box’s sleek 3L boxes, the equivalent of four bottles of wine, sell for a mere $24.99

Bota Box:

Wine coming from the Delicato Family Vineyards harvesting their in grapes in Napa, Lodi, Monterey and Sonoma.

Bota wines are available in three convenient, eco-friendly packages: the original 3-liter Bota Box (equivalent of four 750-ml glass wine bottles), the 500-ml Bota Mini (a tetra pack equivalent to three glasses of wine), and the new 1.5-liter Bota Brick (equivalent to two 750-ml glass wine bottles).The box costs $15 for five liters.

 Vin Vault:

These box wines are produced by E. & J. Gallo Winery. Each Vault holds the equivalent of four 750ml-sized bottles conveniently in one box. These premium wines will stay fresh for up to four weeks after opening. Vin Vault is available in seven varietals, each crafted in a distinct style: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Malbec and Red Blend. It’s a great value for $23!
