Inexpensive Wine Alert! Delicato Shiraz in the Bota Box!

Delicato Shiraz is available as a boxed wine. Yes, I said a boxed wine. Now I have tried boxed wines in the past only to think they tasted like cheap vinegar. This is GOOD, inexpensive wine.
Delicato's boxed wines are in what they call a "Bota Box." They promise to deliver quality wine in a box that will keep for up to a month after opening (mine never has a chance to last that long). It has an innovative drip free tap that is easy to use and the box is easy to store in the cabinet or refrigerator. The bota box is available also in Merlot and Chardonnay. I have never tried any of the other varietals since I like the Shiraz so much. I am also not a big Merlot or Chardonnay fan.

I purchase the Bota Box at my local Meijer Supermarket for approximately $15.00 per box. Each box is equivalent to 4 bottles of wine which amounts to about $3.75 per bottle. Not too bad in my book. An added bonus is that Meijer often has it on sale for $12.99.

So if you are in the market for some inexpensive but good wine for everyday, I highly recommend the Bota Box from Delicato Vineyards.

    I'll have to be on the lookout for that. It's funny, the stigma attached to the packaging.

    Another good box wine is "Boxing Roo"- and it really does stay good for a month!
