Where to start? I’ll start many moons ago, in college, which was the last time I drank boxed wine. (And even then I only used the wine as a component of punch.) Cut to a few weeks ago at Thanksgiving, when my aunt — quite the oenophile — showed up at the family party with a Bota Box. We thought it was a gag until we tasted it: it was really good! The eco-friendly box houses the equivalent of four (count ’em, four) bottles of the award-winning wine — so when I saw it at my local Brooklyn liquor store I had to rub my eyes: was the price really $22? Wow. I’d bring it to a friend’s party, yes in part as a gag gift, but also as a great value for a tasty wine. The Bota Box website has more information on where it’s sold.
