My wife and I recently started trying some box wines -- mostly Bota Box and Vin Vault reds so far. We drink a little wine every evening and liked the idea of spending less compared to the bottled wines. So far we have found some we like pretty well but I am curious if other members of the forum have a favorite they would recommend.
thanks

I haven't seen that one yet. Our Publix has limited selection but I will start looking elsewhere. Thanks

I haven't found a boxed wine i like, but my husband has. His is Vella. Some stores around here only have Franzia in the cheap box wine section, and even HE won't drink that!!

Fish Eye makes a decent boxed wine. I think it was the Chardonnay that I tried a while back...I liked it, and it was pretty affordable, too...about $17 for a box.

Default Is Carlo Rossi Junk?

Never heard of box wines. Guess it's true that you never stop learning, even if you're a geezer.


By the way, are Carlo Rossi reds considered junk or good wines or somewhere in-between? I get them in big jugs/bottles, apparently 4L. Very inexpensive. Not being a connoisseur, they're good enough for me.
