If you’re looking for the convenience of box wine without the nostalgia of college parties or lingering wine hangovers, get ready to raise a glass to your new friend BOXT.
BOXT is an Austin-based, female-owned subscription wine service with six premium wines sourced from grapes around the globe and sent straight to you. The wine is packaged in an eco-friendly, recyclable wood box that sits pretty on your shelf for whenever you want a glass of vino. Definitely not going to be playing ‘slap the bag’ with this one.
It’s delivered from their winery in Napa directly to your door and comes with suggested playlists and food pairings for the wine you ordered! The have a personal concierge team on standby via text to answer any questions you have about selecting your wine, and get this, each BOXT is the equivalent of four bottles of wine “on tap.” Ohmylanta! Rose all day for reals!
The founder of BOXT, Sarah Puil, said she always dreamed of creating great tasting wine, but also wanted to help reduce wine waste for a guilt-free glass. “I wanted people to have a high-quality glass of wine without the need to drink a full bottle or risk wasting it.” She dreamt up BOXT, on a mission to help you tap into a beautiful glass of wine at home, that you’ll not only love drinking but also sharing with your friends.
They aim to give you “as much or as little as you want, when you want, without wasting a drop.” Currently BOXT has six wine profiles, three whites and three reds, that are all crafted and curated at their winery in Napa.
BOXT wine profiles
Instead of naming each wine by its grapes, the company numbers its wines with an emphasis on flavor profiles which they say allows for a broader definition. The six wine profiles are:
- One: Bright, crisp, and dry
- Two: Rich, oaky, and golden
- Three: Floral, fruity, and sweet
- Four: Soft, vibrant, and dynamic
- Five: Big, bold, and smooth
- Six: Sweet, juicy, and velvety
BOXT is available through a subscription service with free shipping of its wines direct to doorsteps. They also call it a “100 percent happiness guarantee” with subscribers having the option to pause, cancel, or change wine selections at any time.
