Okay ladies, share your favorite boxed wine with me! I'm using them for my reception, and will be trying a few before we decide but there's so many I'm not even sure where to start.

If you're just going to say "there's no good boxed wine", please just move on. It's really just a waste of both of our time.

    I like Bota and I think there's another common one in a black box that's good but I can't remember the name.

    I think boxed wine is losing its stigma of being poor quality. I have heard good things about Bota.

    Bota box is the only one I actually like consistently. I’ve tried a few when we have cookouts and stuff. Some of the Black Box wines are good. Download the Vivino app. People rate wines on there. I use it all the time. It’s very helpful.

    Honestly love the line of board some that Target carries. The wine choices. They're delicious. Malbec and Pinot Noir are my two personal faves of that line.

    Black box! We tried them specifically to buy for the wedding but now they’re a staple at my parent’s house! The Malbec is my favorite and we also like the Cabernet. We don’t know too much about white but their Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio basically taste as they should so it works out great! Caution: their Rose is NOT a sweet rose. It’s very dry and basically tastes like Pinot Grigio. It’s nasty. So now we need to find a sweet boxed wine - or maybe just go with a cider.

    A lot of these sell smaller boxes for around $4 each. They have around 3 glasses of wine in them. They’re perfect to try! Just make sure to hit up a larger liquor store so you can grab a bunch to sample.

    also, as far as a “stay away” box - I absolutely hated Vin Vault.

    My coworker raves about Almaden's Chardonnay. I really like Peter Vella Vineyard's Delicious Red - it's a slightly sweet red blend.

    I like Black Box. Fair warning, they don't do sweet wines. Which I think is great because I love dry wines and dry roses and this new (gross) sweet wine trend makes good dry whites and roses hard and expensive to find.
