Glass bottles are heavy and cost a lot per millilitre to transport. Not only is transporting a heavy material like glass more costly in money terms, it’s also more costly to the environment.
Box wine is lighter and less fragile than a bottle, making it the perfect travel companion for parties, concerts - you name it.
As packaging goes, glass is significantly more expensive to use than a box. It's also more expensive to ship. Box wine allows winemakers to keep costs low and pass the savings on to you.
You can expect fresh wine for 4 – 6 weeks after opening box wine versus a few days for traditional bottles.
