Box-a-Palooza (6/09/23)

Join us for an Ecologically Friendly, French-inspired Box-a-Palooza tasting event.

France’s food culture is known for sophisticated cuisine AND high quality table wine often served from a box – that’s right the BIB (Bag in Box)!

It makes sense – one box equals 4 bottles of wine with the packaging weight of less than a single bottle = less waste, less expense. Plus, the BIB design doesn’t allow air to reach the wine, so the wine won’t oxidize in a few short days (as it would with an open bottle).

Join us on Friday, June 9th to taste some good quality French wines (you may recognize one that was served in bottle at a previous OTG dinner!) available at great savings in a super convenient box along with bites from Sprezzatura – let’s break the Franzia-created stigma and enjoy wine from a box!

And yeah – New York Times wine writer Eric Asimov just wrote an article on (good) box wine, and yeah, he suggests a box wine that we already arranged for this tasting – apparently great minds enjoy good wine in a box!
