Yep, I’m going there: boxed wine. Mind you, this is not your parent’s Franzia White Zin – just pure economical goodness in a box, that’s recyclable to boot! Merely drinking it is good for the environment.

Enter RedVolution by Bota Box. I was at Costco and asked the aloof, young cashier, “What do you know about this boxed wine?” He insightfully retorted, “Ummm. Lots of people requested it.”

That raving review left me no choice. I had to pick up a box. Two, actually.

The directions were simple, and it was fun to pull the spout out and prep the box; not unlike tapping a keg. Initially, the pour comes out with brute force. It desperately wants out, and to get up in your glass. But was this just a cool party trick?

The taste was surprisingly, umm, acceptable! Make no mistake, this is a mild wine suitable for everyday drinking. This California blend of Merlot, Cab, Zin, Syrah and Petite Sirah, makes it go with just about everything. My husband and I drink it throughout the week, or, at least that was the plan. I think it was gone in a couple days. The drawback of spout-pouring wine – it goes fast!

If you need wine for dinner with the in-laws, bring this along. They’ll love you for it and you’ll have plenty to drink to get you through the evening.

The RedVolution is available at Costco for $14.99 + tax which comes to $16 and change all for a box of wine equivalent to 4 bottles. So – let’s break this down, that is about $4/bottle and therefore I deem RedVolution as the Savvy Lush “Savvy bottle, er, box of the month.”

  1. Picked this up for $16.99 it is worth every penny! I spend a fair amount of time searching for palatable budget wines (under $15 a bottle) now I fear my search is over.

    1. Dear Sebastian ~

      Thanks for commenting! It can be exhausting finding palatable hooch for under $15! Glad you found it in box like I have.

      The only downside is that spout pouring leads to bigger glasses of vino. . .well, at my house. ;)

      Cheers
      T.S.L.
