Bota Box has unveiled Nighthawk Black.
A full-bodied California dark red blend of Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah, Nighthawk Black is available nationally in the 3-liter Bota Box format as an ongoing year-round item, the company says, as well as in the Bota Mini 500ml Tetra Pak format as a seasonal item.
Featuring the same eco-friendly packaging as the 12 varietals in the Bota Box Premium 3-Liter suite, Nighthawk Black is made from unbleached, post-consumer fiber and is 100 percent recyclable. The carton is printed with VOC-free inks, the company says, and is constructed with corn starch over synthetic glues.
Consumers can drink wine from Nighthawk Black for up to four weeks after opening.
The equivalent of four 750ml glass bottles, Bota Box Nighthawk Black is now available nationwide at a suggested retail price of $22.99, and Bota Mini 500ml Tetra Paks are shipping now and available at a suggested retail price of $5.99, while supplies last.
Bota Box takes its name from the traditional Spanish wine skin known as a bota used to carry wine for centuries. Bota bags became popular in the 1960s and 1970s with hikers, skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts who were looking to take wine along on the outdoor adventure without the weight and hassle of glass bottles.
