How many "bottles" are in each box?
Our four-bottle format is 3 litres of wine or the same as four traditional 750ml bottles of wine.
How long does the wine stay fresh?
the wine stays fresh for up to 6 weeks once tapped.
How do you make your wines?
We make the wines ourselves at our state of the art winery in Napa, California. Every great wine starts in the vineyard, so outstanding fruit is the best ingredient, along with french oak and constant care taken in every step by our award winning winemaking team.
Where do you source grapes?
We sustainably source our grapes and juice from all over the world and ensure our growing partners are using the best farming practices.
Who makes your wine?
We do. We are a fully licensed bonded winery in California and Texas with direct to consumer shipping permits to 47 states and U.S. territories. Our winemaker is responsible for the making of all of our wines.
How often do you blend your wines?
Using our taste-first approach, we continuously blend our wines so you know the wine of your choice will be consistent in quality and taste.
Does the taste change when you blend different varieties?
Absolutely! Every variety of grape will impart different characteristics to a wine, along with how we craft them in the winery. For example, we may use certain varieties for aromatic qualities, others for mouthfeel and texture… many red varieties each have their own unique imprint on your palate crafting the structure and shape of a wine in your mouth.
What does a taste-first blending approach mean?
All winemakers start with a vision for each wine they craft and aim to deliver on the taste expectations of those drinking it. We are no different with our approach. “Taste-first” means we have a vision we strive to achieve for each of our wines. Knowing that your house wine must provide a consistent experience month over month, our winemaker sources grapes and juice from our partners with these characteristics in mind. Each time we sit at the blending table, the components for each wine deliver different notes in the glass. These notes can be from the growing region where we source the grapes, fermentation and aging protocols (oak v. stainless vessels, etc) and most important, the natural characteristics from the varietal of grapes blended in each of our eight wine profiles.
Why don’t you have your own vineyards?
We made the decision to not grow our own grapes, but to source them through partners so we had the entire world as our vineyard. This gives us the opportunity to not be restricted by a single plot of land and the uncontrollable environmental conditions that might exist in any given year. We forge incredibly close relationships with our growing partners to ensure the best farming practices and highest quality grapes.
Are your wines organic?
All of the grapes are sustainably farmed using organic farming practices. What limits our wine from being classified as “organic” is that we do use sulfites (a natural by product of the fermentation process) to protect the wine from oxygen.
Are there any additives?
Aside from the sulfites mentioned above, we do not add anything to our wines.
How much sugar is in the wines?
Each wine has 0 grams of residual sugar per serving.
What is the alcohol content of your wines?
The highest alcohol content of our whites and rosé is 12.7% and our reds are under 13.8% alcohol by volume. Generally, we are a few ticks below each percentage.
Do your wines have sulfites?
The natural sulfites in wine are produced in the fermentation process and we do a small addition as well prior to packaging the wine to protect it from oxidation.
Are your wines vegan and keto friendly?
Yes! You may hear winemakers talk about “fining agents”. These are used to clarify whites and rosé wines and pull proteins out of the wine which cause a hazy effect in the glass. Many wineries use egg whites or isinglass (dried fish bladder). We use bentonite, which is a natural clay from the earth in order to keep our wines vegan.

Why does wine give me headaches?
There are three reasons wine can give you a headache:1. You drank too much of it! 2. Many wines are made with added or residual sugar which will give anyone a headache. 3. It’s not the sulfites or the tannins, but you may have an allergy or sensitivity to histamines. Grape skins and the food we like to eat with wine, so you may get a headache from an overload of histamines.
Why did you decide to put your wine in a box?
We decided to put our wines in a box because our mission is to be your house wine - your go to Tuesday night (or everynight wine). Our wines are crafted to be consumed in the next 12 months versus some wines (that we love) which are crafted to be aged over time. If we were making “aged over time” wines, we’d put them in a bottle. Did you know that 97% of the wines in the world are made to be consumed within the year - and if all of those wines were put in the incredible bag-in-box format, it would be like taking 400,000 cars from the roads each year? We aren’t making boxed wine, we are making premium wines, and putting them in a four-bottle format because it is a smarter, more eco-friendly way to enjoy wine at home. On top of that, when we set out to make available ultra premium wines, we spent a lot of time thinking about the experience of enjoying a glass of wine at home and the problems we came across over and over? Three major things: 1. Picking a bottle at the wine store is like playing a game of bottle roulette, you never know how it will taste or if you’ll even like it. 2. But more important to our four-bottle, on-tap format, if you just want one glass, you don’t have to open a whole bottle and drink more than you want or waste what you don’t drink. And you can enjoy it all month long. But before BOXT, the options were limited if you just wanted a single glass. Traditional boxed wine was not high quality and contained lots of unwanted additives and sugars. 3. The middleman costs the consumer a lot of money. But since we ship BOXT directly to your doorstep (versus being able to buy our wines in a store) we can deliver a more premium wine, without compromising quality.
Are blends inferior to wines that can be called by their varietal, like chardonnay or pinot noir?
Here is the dirty little secret, you’ve been drinking blended wine all along. Wines you think are a single varietal are really blends. In the US, a bottle of wine labeled by its varietal (merlot, zinfandel, pinot gris, etc.) legally only has to contain 75% of the grapes on the label. The other 25% is what the winemaker uses to create the exact taste they want, because most grape varieties get better when you blend them. Exceptions to blending are pinot noir and chardonnay, which aren’t usually blended, unless the winemaker is making champagne. The only time you're not drinking a blended wine is if the label says it's 100% of a single varietal and there are very few wines produced this way.
