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.

    Found a full box on the side of the road, for its price its pretty good, nothing I would pay top price for. 13 bucks a box is a good deal, free on the side of the road is even better Read More

  • ... I didn't want to be seen a Franzia-type. After trying the Wine Cube, I am now curious about the quality of these other alternative wines. I would like to know of your experiences with non-bottled wines. Are there other "alternative packaged" wines I should look into? Read More

  • Franzia Vintner Select 2000

    Snoothrank:

    I'm not a wine snob, so Franzia in the box has been a staple for a while at my place. Once in a while I spring for something nice. 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
