Bota Box recently revealed their California pinot grigo and cabernet sauvignon just in time for beach picnics, bike rides and beach volleyball.
These cute, convenient little pouches – priced at $5 each and containing three to four glasses. – are big wine fun. The Tetra Paks are unbreakable and practical with a resealable, twist off cap and creates 85 percent less landfill waste. Because the container is not exposed to light or oxygen the wine stays fresh over six weeks.
Opening to fresh aromas of honeysuckle and pear, this medium bodied varietal is lovely and dry with flavors of Myer lemon, Granny Smith apples and hints of vanilla. Serve it chilled with grilled shrimp, olive tapenade and pita chips.
The 500 ml cabernet sauvignon selection is the perfect choice for backpacking adventures. Spicy notes of violets, dark plum and black cherry tempt the nose with the excitement of the first sip. It is big and juicy with rich flavors of black currant and a touch of cedar.
This wine hears the “Call of the Wild” near a blazing campfire while barbecue burgers sizzle in the iron skillet.
Another suggestion could be smoked mozzarella and prosciutto sandwiches or hearty stews. Be sure to tuck in plenty of the flavor-packed pouches for the moon rise.
