Keep the suggestions coming, please!
You sly old dog, I need to be asking you for advice....
The name of the Bevmo offering is Bota Box.....Perhaps some Bota Box Pinot Grigio '11 in the 3 liter box with a lite dusting....
I'll second that. I've been sampling the higher end offerings of boxed wine lately as I didn't like hauling all the bottles back last year. The 'higher end' offerings seem to be about the equivalent of 4 bottles, and go for $16-$20. I'd be thrilled to find better wines in boxes, but these are the best I've found in the local stores (bay area) without looking too hard.Best boxed white I've found in that price range
: Bota Box Chardonnay.
Didn't try the Pinot Grigio as I don't care for that grape. Got it at Bevmo.
Am still looking for a nice boxed sauv blanc, as I'd prefer that to chard, but the only one I've tasted - Silver Birch, from the kiwis, is cloying and terrible. Best boxed red in that price range I've found
: Big House Red
. This is an $8/bottle wine that we've occasionally enjoyed in a bottle. Were pleased to find it in a box, and it's about half the price this way. And a whole lot more convenient. Got it at Mollie Stone's (Bay Area). Review of the wine here: http://blogs.sfweekly.com/foodie/2010/1 ... n_sink.php
The other red I'm hopeful about, but haven't tasted yet, is the Bota Box Shiraz. Got a box of it in the fridge, but we haven't opened it yet.
