Delicious, we said, filling a glass from the spout on the side of the box of Vignes des Lumieres. In that glass, a cool deep red Rhône wine, with body and a sporty quality, perfect with just about any grilled food. Four bottles in one box, at about $8.50 per bottle. And with no oxygen contact possible, it lasts for months—if you want it to. We like to chill ours in the summer. Quality, inexpensive boxed wines like Vignes des Lumieres’ red have been a hit in Europe for a long time. Now, this pleasurable bargain is ours, too.
Tell your wine store that Winebow is the distributor of Vignes des Lumieres (aka Clos des Lumieres) Rhône Red. That way they can look it up easily.
