City Pulse

By Candice Sabatini

If the mere mention of wine in a box creates images of party-ers sporting mullets and drinking plonk, just hold on a sec, we’ve got some good news.

From Four Wines, comes the first premium wine in an eco-friendly tube shaped box…and a cool looking one at that! The company, dedicated to innovative, alternative packaging has developed the first California wine that comes in a good looking round recyclable container. But this is nothing like the boxed wines of yore. Four Wines is a smooth blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with a little Petite Syrah, that’s been aged in American oak for 14 months. The attractive round tube with a liner holds 3 liters, the equivalent of four bottles, and sells for about $40.00.

Perfect for your summer get-togethers, and will stay fresh and drinkable for a couple of weeks after opening. So, this July 4th, why not celebrate the red, white and blue with a nice red in a green package?

Available: Astor Wines & Spirits, 399 Lafayette Street
