I don’t claim to be a wine connoisseur. In fact I will openly state that I know very little about wine. What I do know is what I like and one of my favorite wines is a wine-in-a-box. This post is not about that wine though. I have had a love-hate relationship with my wine for some time because the box is ugly and it is difficult to get all the wine out of it. That is until we were sent the Box Wine Dispenser from Uncommon Goods. It was sent to use for review and below you will find my thoughts and opinions on it.
Box wines are economical and environmentally friendly. They provide a simple way to save your wine for another time. What they don’t offer is a pretty package. I loved the idea of a stainless steel product that I can either use on my counter or in my fridge to keep my boxed wine. What I loved more though was that I no longer had to tilt the box and try to get the last few glasses out. The dispenser applies upward internal pressure to serve the wine above your glass, rather than from the counter edge as with gravity-fed wine in the box.
It is super simple to use. Simply take your wine out of the box it came in. You will need a 3L bag for this to work and I had to actually remove a glass to get mine to work. Push the inner spring-loaded surface down until it stays put. Then place your bag in the Box Wine Dispenser with the spout at the top. It took me a few times to get this right. Just be careful to not break the bag and retry if you mess it up the first time.
Close the lid and you are ready to drink your favorite wine. The Box Wine Dispenser keeps your wine fresh for up to six weeks by enhancing the function of the wine bag’s design. Pretty great, right? I have really enjoyed using this and find it so much easier to use than the box my wine came with. But, as I mentioned, it is also stylish and something I wouldn’t be embarrassed to have on my countertop. I actually did put the Box Wine Dispenser in my fridge because I really prefer a cold wine. Either way works fine though.
My best friend is the one that got me hooked on the box wine we like. This would make the perfect gift for her this holiday season. It would look and work wonderfully in her stainless kitchen.
You can purchase the Box Wine Dispenser for $100. I encourage you to check out the Uncommon Goods website while you are gift shopping this year and anytime you want some truly unique gifts for your loved one. I spent a good amount of time on the site when deciding what exactly I wanted to review. There is so much to see and each item is better than the last. You will love this site!
