Bota Box Introduces “Bota Box Breeze”, Lower in Calories, Carbs and Alcohol


New Line of Light and Refreshing Wines Brings Lower-Alcohol Innovation to Premium Three-Liter Box, the Top-Growing Format in Wine1 

NAPA, Calif., Feb. 26, 2021 – Delicato Family Wines, producer of Bota Box, the sixth-largest wine brand in  America by value2, announced today the launch of Bota Box Breeze, a new line of premium, 3-liter boxed  wines under the Bota Box brand crafted to be lower in calories, carbohydrates and alcohol, while offering  the exceptional quality and deliciousness that consumers expect from Bota Box. The new Bota Box Breeze  

hits store shelves nationwide beginning in March with the introduction of three varietal wines: A Pinot  Grigio, a Dry Rosé and a Red Wine Blend.  

“Consumers are looking for light and refreshing alternatives to traditional alcoholic beverages, and  Bota Box Breeze will be the first such wines in alternative packaging,” notes Chris Indelicato, CEO of  Delicato Family Wines. “It’s an unmet need for consumers, and, as the market leader in premium 3-liter  box wines, Bota Box will be tapping this desire in order to grow the category.”  

Consumer desire for lighter alternatives in the alcoholic beverage category follows long-term diet  trends in food. According to market research firm Wine Intelligence, more than 40 percent of today’s  wine consumers are choosing lower-alcohol wines.3 Retail data substantiate this finding: the U.S. light  wine category grew 91 percent in 2020, according to IRI.4 

Bota Box Breeze wines align this shift in consumer’s diet preferences with the popularity of  premium 3-liter box wine, which is the fastest-growing format in wine5. Within this segment, Bota Box is the driver of category growth6; total depletions for the brand grew more than 40 percent in 2020, to more  

Strong Consumer Appeal Validated by Rigorous Testing 

Rigorous testing with consumers showed that consumers find Bota Box Breeze wines strongly  appealing. In research conducted with 3,500 wine drinkers, consumers who regularly purchase alcoholic  beverages that are lighter in calories and alcohol reported strong purchase intent for Bota Box Breeze8.  Bota Box Breeze Pinot Grigio and Dry Rosé wines offer just 3.3 grams of carbohydrates and 80 calories per  serving, while the Red Wine Blend offers 4.3 grams of carbohydrates and 85 calories per serving. All three  wines have an alcohol level of eight percent. The wines are also low in sugar and gluten-free. 

Consumers also found Bota Box Breeze’s eye-catching package, which utilizes vibrant colors and  “light” and “refreshing” cues, to be appealing9. The wine’s eye-catching graphics stand out in shelf  displays designed to drive visibility at retail.  

The new Bota Box Breeze Pinot Grigio, Dry Rosé and Red Wine Blend will be available nationwide for a suggested retail selling price of $22.99 beginning in March. Each eco-friendly, 3-liter carton contains  the equivalent of four 750-ml bottles of wine. For more information about Bota Box wines, visit  www.botabox.com or www.facebook.com/botabox.

  1. I’m very excited about the new light wines you are coming out with ..can’t wait to try them with family and friends each Wednesday night for wine night. We Always Have A Great Time Enjoying Your Wines.Gary/Betty Swafford.10024 Timbercreek ct. California Ky. 41007. 859-547-7002

  2. It’s quite telling that you have blocked comments on your advertising threads. I’d say only about 50pct of your product batch is healthy to drink. The other batch gives me uncontrollable stomach problems. Try putting out a better product, and then your could put our a review slot on your website.

  3. When will you be coming out with a breeze Chardonnay?
    We really enjoy the Pinot Grigio but prefer Chardonnay

  4. I just tried the Bota Box Breeze Pinot Grigio and it is awful. I have been drinking Bota Box Pinot Grigio for a very long time. Could not believe how badly this tasted. Tasted like very very cheap wine!!

  5. I have needed to reduce my alcohol intake, so have been trying this 8%ABV wine. While it is certainly not a high end Pinot Grigio,it’s much better than skinny girl wines. I find that adding a splash of sparkling water and a muddled piece of fruit, a strawberry of peach slice takes that “flat” taste off it. I’ve yet to try the red or rose, but now that I’ve gotten accustomed to it, I always have a box in the fridge. And I have certainly had some pricey Pinots that were far worse than this.

  6. Bangor, Maine is just getting this , June , 2022, Please keep it coming, it is appreciated!
