Franzia is a wine brand known for its “WineTap” box wines, out of the Yosemite area of California. The brand is named for Teresa Franzia, who founded the winery in 1906. The box wines began in the 1970s and were an instant success. The wines are available in 3 and 5 liter cartons, offered in a wide range of styles in white, red and rosé as well as sangria, Sunset Blush and other blends.

Yeah, it's not the most flavourful zinfandel I've ever had, but it sure beats many I've had at triple or quadruple the price. Large party? No prob... Read More
