Lately, I've heard an increasing amount of hype around how much wine in a box has improved over the years. Like screw-cap wines, boxed wine has become more widely accepted. Because of their unique dispensing system, the wines can last up to six weeks — much longer than the average bottle of wine, which can only survive a couple of days. I haven't tried a boxed wine in years, but I get a hangover just thinking about the boxed wine my friends and I used to buy in college. Perhaps I should seriously consider giving it another chance. What about you: Do you appreciate boxed wine?
I attended a fashion show pre-party with FabSugar and was only mildly surprised to see that boxed wine sat on all of the tables. It used to be that boxed wines, and their frowned upon cousin the screw cap, were reserved for large quantities of bad quality table wine. However, with better technology and techniques in sealing boxes/bottles, many young and established wineries are turning to the box and the easy to open bottle. What do you think of this growing trend? Do you drink boxed or screw cap wine?
