Somewhere along the way, boxed wine got a reputation for being too cheap, too gross, and something that only broke college students would drink. Thankfully, millennials are all about making what’s old new again, which is why winemakers are working hard to bring boxed wine back — and make it better than ever. Enter Black Box Wines and their crisp new Rosé: not only is it delicious (fruity, with notes of fresh watermelon, strawberry, and delicate white peach) but it’s also ideal for lazy Summer beach days and impromptu picnics in the park.
One box ($21) equals a casual four bottles of wine, so you don’t have to worry about lugging glass around or hearing the dreaded, “I forgot my corkscrew.” Boxed wine is also more eco-friendly, as it requires less energy to produce and transport than bottled wine. Perhaps the best part is that your boxed Rosé will last up to four weeks after you open it, so you don’t have to rush to guzzle it all down before it goes bad (unless of course, you really want to, which is totally your business and not ours). Sip it over time or use it to make a refreshing batch of Rosé slushies, but this boxed Rosé is just too good not to try.
