Anyway, the surge in popularity of boxed wine (which is basically wine in a plastic bag inside a cardboard box) is due to various advantages. The boxes hold more wine. They don't break like a bottle. They're easy to open. And they chill quickly. If you're looking for a good party option, this could be it!
I knew right away when I decided to do a post about boxed wine that I had to call Mandi, Connoisseur O' The Box. I know from drunken tweets, embarrassing Facebook pics and thinly veiled references in her blog (maybe not that thinly veiled) that Mandi is on Team Box and enjoys this wine with her gal pals. So I thought she could recommend some good ones for those of us looking to dip our toes into the brand new world of....cardboard!
Take it away, Mandi!
I love wine. I love cocktails. I love beer. (Are you understanding the sloshy part now?)

For those special occasions where it might not be appropriate to slurp from a box, here are my recommendations for bottles of wine:
(I bought it for the name, but it has become a favorite)
Are you a boxed wine drinker? What are some of your favorite wines?
