DRINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX

Discerning oenophiles have long looked down on boxed wine. The idea of drinking from a cardboard box just leaves a bad taste in their mouths. But now a new company has uncorked itself onto the luxury market, doing away with the boxed-wine stigma and putting a fine drinking experience on tap. Indulge in Andegavia Cask Wines.

Gavin and Kelly Macomber unveiled Andegavia at this year’s Wine Festival on Nantucket. After meeting on the island back in the 2007, the Boston-based couple knew Nantucket was an ideal location to pour out their creation. The reaction has been nothing short of fruitful. With a focus on sustainability and exquisite wine, Andegavia’s California reds and whites have received rave re- views—box and all!

Trading the term “box” for “cask,” the Macombers claim that the benefits of drinking from their sleekly designed containers beat out that of any bottle. Each cask holds the equivalent of four 750ml bottles and keeps the wine fresh for up to four weeks. Andegavia’s wines are sourced from vine- yards in Napa and Sonoma and have earned ratings of 90 to 96 from Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, and Wine Advocate. When the cask runs dry, Andegavia’s container is 100 percent recyclable. We can all drink to that! To order a cask of your own, visit www.Andegavia.com.
