"I'm most proud of how we've set ourselves apart in the wine industry delivering premium wine nationwide in the most eco-friendly packaging," said Sarah Puil, Founder and CEO of BOXT.
AUSTIN, TX, April 17, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- America's house wine, BOXT, furthers its mission of sustainability by shipping its award-winning, premium wine in refillable packaging for its iconic, wooden boxes in time for Earth Day 2023. BOXT, the female-founded, direct–to-consumer winery, was founded with a mission to be America's house wine with 50% less carbon footprint than a single bottle of wine. Born in Austin, made in Napa, and delivered directly to consumers' doorsteps, each eco-friendly BOXT is equal to four bottles of wine and stays fresh for up to 6 weeks once tapped.
From the beginning, BOXT set out to be part of the solution for climate change and sustainability in the wine industry. The BOXT was designed to be reusable and compostable, and ultimately refilled to further reduce single-use waste and carbon footprint. The first wine shipment includes the unique, reusable BOXT, and every shipment after arrives with the refillable wine in an eco-friendly tote. To further reduce BOXT's carbon footprint, a tree is planted for every BOXT made.
The launch of refillables comes on the heels of the two-year-old wine start-up racking up 33 medals. BOXT most recently took top honors with Double Gold in the prestigious San Francisco International Wine Competition (SFIWC), making its bordeaux blend, Profile #5, among the best in the world. San Francisco is one of the world's most influential competitions with more than 30 judges, all wine industry professionals evaluating approximately 3,000 wines from around the world. Roughly 65% of the wines were from North America. Profile #5 won Double Gold, meaning every judge unanimously ranked it number one. All of the BOXT profiles won gold at the competition.
"We're thrilled our wines have been awarded 33 medals now, especially the unanimous choice of our Profile #5 in San Francisco. It proves we are delivering fine wine on tap," said Sarah Puil, Founder and CEO of BOXT. "I'm most proud of how we've set ourselves apart in the wine industry delivering premium wine nationwide in the most eco-friendly packaging. We're making small decisions that continue to add up for a big impact. Our sleek, modern BOXT is 100% compostable. Now by shipping out refillables we're making another big step in reducing our carbon footprint and reducing single-use waste. You can feel good about tapping in and we'll refill your BOXT as often as you'd like!"
