I feel like if you’re gluten free and over the age of 21, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re a wino. I mean, it’s a beverage that we can actually drink so I think it’s only natural.
Speaking wino to wino, I’m going to let you know about the classy selection of wines that Black Box Wines has and the convenience of the whole “boxed wine” thing. It’s pretty great.
So there’s lots of times when you want wine (ummm…like every day), but you can’t necessarily bring glass to where you’re going. Or maybe it isn’t convenient to have wine bottles clinking together…or dare I say it – you forget the wine opener (the worst!). This is why I’ve been converted to a boxed wine connoisseur.
Before you go make judgments about the fact that the wine is boxed, hear me out: Black Boxed Wines isn’t the cheap stuff (a.k.a. the stuff I drank in college). It’s for wine lovers like you and I who don’t care about the bottle itself, but about the wine that’s inside of it. The wine is also more affordable, supporting the “It’s always wine-o’clock” mentality that I have. When you crunch the numbers, the Black Box Wines 3L box holds the equivalent of 4 bottles and costs $25, which comes out to $6.25 per bottle. Can I get a H-yeah?!
Lose the Bottle: Boxin’ on the Beach
I like to think of myself as an on-the-go girl, so the option of packing my box of wine for the beach was pretty fantastic. I didn’t have to worry about bringing my wine opener for a bottle of wine, or bringing other alternative booze options that usually involve 5 different bottles/containers/mixers. The cooler can get heavy when this girl plans a beach drinking day, BUT not with Black Box Wines!
Black Box Wines recently released their California Pinot Noir so I wanted to tap into that. I had my bestie, Alana with me and she’s also a wino, so she supported my decision to box it up on the beach. It was easy peasy just setting the wine down on our little beach table and pouring our grown-up juice.
To make things a little bit lighter as we sipped in the sun, we grabbed some Sprite and made a Black Box Wine Pinot Noir spritzer. I know, we are geniuses.
Mini Black Box Wine Alternatives
Another super cute and convenient thing from Black Box Wines are the 500 mL sizes that Black Box Wines offers. It’s the most portable wine you could ask for and are great to take to outdoorsy places – think the next picnic you go to, or tailgating when fall rolls around.
I’m pretty sure I’ll be 500 mL’ing it up over my July 4th cabin + music festival weekend. It just seems so much more convenient to bring a little individual Black Box serving rather than bringing a big ‘ol bottle, dealing with a cork, and praying that I don’t lose my wine opener along the way.
Is there an activity or location that comes to mind that would be perfect to bring Black Box Wines to, or have you already hit the box on-the-go? Share it with me in the comments. I want to know your outdoorsy wino preferences!
