Vegan Boxed Wines
Find a package for the vegan boxed wines in step 1. Step 2: Pour vegan wine inside that box. Step 3: Ensure that you never run out of vegan wine again. Okay, so it doesn’t really work that that, but today we’re going to talk about boxed wine, which is a favorite of eccentric aunts and low-budget gatherings everywhere. Despite the stigma associated with wine being “not that great” when it comes from a box, boxed wine has actually advanced significantly. You can find excellent vegan wine in a box.
Additionally, one of the major benefits of boxed wine is the lower price per unit of alcohol (you can get a lot of wine in a box). For instance, the typical 3- to 5-liter box of wine costs roughly $15. This results in a (about) $0.50 per glass average cost for wine.
Okay, so boxed wine is a terrific value. However, are there any boxed wines that are vegan, and if so, what are they? It’s time to learn more about boxed wine in the Vegan Bev HQ comprehensive guide.
Vegan Boxed Wine – What Is Available
Our Daily Wines, Wine Cube, Brown Box, Big Sipper, and Trader Joe’s Block all sell vegan red boxed wines. Additionally, Brown Box, Trader Joe’s Block, and Wine Cube all sell vegan white boxed wines. Wine Cube also sells a vegan rose boxed wine.
Brown Box Wines
Try saying “Browned Box Boxed” wines ten times quickly. The good news is that, in accordance with Barnivore, all Brown Box boxed wines (Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Riesling) are vegan.
My favorite white wine out of all of these is the Riesling; you can test a box through Instacart here. Finding a vegan boxed white wine, much less a vegan boxed Riesling, is uncommon. What’s not to love about honey, apricot, caramel, melon, tropical fruits, and bananas galore? Despite the honey undertones, there is no need to worry because this product is vegan (otherwise it wouldn’t be on this list!).
You can order their chardonnay from Instacart here if you’d like to try Brown Box but prefer chardonnay.
Big Sipper Red Blend
The most important fact to keep in mind about Big Sipper Boxed Wines is that only their red wines are vegan. According to Barnivore, Big Sipper White Blend boxed wines are not vegan because they use milk during the fining process.
Why Is It Harder To Find Vegan White Wines?
You may have noticed from reading this list and my other postings about wine that it is more difficult to obtain white vegan wines than vegan red wines. Why is that so? It’s because there are less places for molecules to “hide” in white wines than there are in red ones. As a result, white wines typically use fining agents more frequently than red wines. Compared to cloudy white wine, it is more acceptable to drink cloudy unfined red wine.
After we’ve discussed that, let’s get back to Big Sipper. Californian wine from Big Sipper’s Sweet Red Blend offers all the red and blackberry notes you would expect from a red blend. It is available for purchase from Instacart here.
Trader Joe’s Block Pinot Grigio
Since finding vegan white wine can be much more challenging than finding vegan red wine, I wanted to provide a vegan white boxed wine to round out the list. Trader Joe’s vegan Pinot Grigio in a box. What more could you ask for in a white vegan boxed wine than the full melon taste, floral undertones, and moderate sweetness? You will need to visit your local Trader Joe’s to locate one as the retailer doesn’t offer products online or through Instacart.
Please be aware that Trader Joe’s Block Chardonnay and Red Shiraz are vegan, but their Cabernet Sauvignon is not, according to Barnivore (as of 1 January 022). Trader Joe’s does not sell online, as I previously stated, but boxed red wine enthusiasts can rejoice: I was able to locate the retailer’s Block Shiraz on Drizly. You must go to Trader Joes if pinot grigio or chardonnay are what you’re looking for.
