Let’s start here: the average bottle of wine contains 750 ml, so depending on your chosen boxed wine, it can contain up to FOUR times that amount, likely blowing the cost-per-bottle out of the water without breaking a sweat.
Beyond cost effectiveness, boxed wines sport the perfectly airtight (and easily repurposed) wine bag—lending them the oft-used descriptor of “bag-in-a-box” wines, but also allowing for extended freshness. So they’re doubly perfect if you’re the type that never finishes a bottle in one sitting. “Waste not, want not,” we say! And at the end of the day, availability of quality boxed wines truly has come a long way since their advent a few decades back, so you’re sure to find a variety that suits your taste.
