We’re not sure when it happened, but between broke college students and frugal overseas trips, boxed wine got a bad reputation with so many turning away from the idea of their favorite drink likened to middle school tetra packs. But this is nothing like that!
What’s old is new again, and wine companies are making boxed wine better than ever with your impromptu picnics, lazy beach days and backyard barbecues in mind.
Built around the dark skinned grape, Syrah, its fruity flavor profile is both crisp and refreshing with enticing aromas and flavors of fresh strawberry, watermelon and delicate white peach. Airy and light, the flavors are diverse and refreshingly light. Its fruit-forward palette pairs easily with a diverse selection of summer friendly foods from antipasto spreads and fresh salads, and perfect for a night in with Netflix on the couch in your pajamas.
For those who always forget the corkscrew too, this award-winning wine is more than ideal. Each box costs roughly $21, which is equal to about four bottles of wine and stays fresh for six weeks after opening. Not to mention, it’s eco-friendly for those who are environmentally conscious and is an estimated half the carbon footprint glass bottles leave behind.
As beautiful as it is enjoyable, it complements any table and is going to be your favorite addition to this lazy, crazy summer.
