@Bota_Box Wine

www.botabox.com
I love wine...  red, white, sparkling, and rose, I don't discriminate!  My favorite white wines are Gew├╝rztraminers and Rieslings, but I also love a good Cabernet Sauvignon.  The problem is, I only drink a glass or two, and then I'm stuck with a partial bottle that doesn't keep very long on the counter or in the fridge.  (I'm not a heavy drinker!)  It's such a shame to me to have good wine turn to vinegar before I can finish it all!

Then, while browsing at a local beverage store, I noticed a pretty box of wine on the shelf.  I know what you're thinking... boxed wine is cheap and unrefined.  Yeah, I thought so too.  But when I saw the high ratings on Bota Box's Cabernet Sauvignon, I was intrigued.  Even Wine Spectator rated the Cabernet Sauvignon with 87 points, and Wine Enthusiast gave it 85.  I also saw that, once opened, the wine will stay fresh for over a month.  That's because Bota packaging keeps the wine away from light and air. 

I decided to try it, and I wasn't disappointed.  The box was easy to set up, and the wine tasted great!  It was the same caliber as the wine I buy in bottles.  The box is perfect for a countertop, or even the fridge.  And the price is right too; I paid the same for a 3L box that I would for one bottle of wine.  That's like getting three bottles for free.

I know that there will still be people who turn their nose up at boxed wine... but now the technology is there to make it both good and practical.  If you live alone and like a nightly glass of wine, this is the perfect match.  You can still bring out your fancy bottle for company, but when it comes to the everyday, Bota Box has definitely got a new convert in me!

  1. I love a good box of wine! I tried several NASTY ones before I hit the jackpot by finding my favorite. I'll have to give this one a try when I finally go back to "the box" haha.

  3. And extra bonus...the box is recyclable with less packaging than 4 separate bottles! I love my Bota Boxes :) Of course, my friends and I bring them out at parties too lol.
