Don’t Be a Wine Snob — This is Not Your Mother’s Boxed Wine

Remember the days when screw caps were frowned upon? No self-respecting wine enthusiast (snob) would be caught drinking wine that came from a bottle with a screw cap. Now you don’t need a corkscrew to open some of the most respected (and pricey) wines. Maybe one day we’ll say the same about boxed wine. After all, Have You Heard? There’s a Wine Revolution! For the past several years, companies like California’s Bota Box, have been increasing their sales year after year. Younger generations of wine drinkers are teaching us that boxed wine is just fine!

 

Why is Boxed Wine so Popular? The Advantages of Wine in a Box

    • portable container of your favourite juice
    • kinder to the environment (recyclable and less landfill waste than glass)
    • maintains its freshness longer after opening
    • the weight and shape is better for shipping
    • More bang for your buck! Eg: a 3L box is 4 bottles of wine.

For more info on just how long wine in a box will last, here’s a piece from the Globe and Mail.
