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.

I usually tell my friends I can't tell the difference between Franzia and wines that cost a little more. However, this year it is acidic and sharp tasting, difficult to drink. Unfortunately, I bought 2 boxes becau... Read More

    I'm new to wines, and often haven't ventured outside of Whiter Zinfandels, Chillable Red (Franzia) and Smitschonne (sp?) Riesling.

It's perfectly fruity and sweet eno... Read More
