wine | princeton photographer

5 years ago this June, Anthony and I took our honeymoon in the Sonoma Valley area of California. This is when we truly fell in love with wine. We came back thinking we were wine connoisseurs (ha! to think how naive we were!) and enjoy a glass occasionally. The problem for me is I love to have one glass and then a few days later have another. I’m not a huge fan of leaving white wine in the frig opened for days at a time. I think it becomes much more bitter and unpleasant.

I found a solution – Black Box wines. The last time we bought a box was in red (several years ago) and I’m not even sure they had whites yet. A few weeks ago I was browsing the wine store at my favorite grocer Wegmans and what do I see but a Pinot Grigio Black Box wine. HEAVEN! It has the right amount of sweetness and tart that I found in my pinot g’s. And so much classier to drink out of this box than the normal boxed wines.

(I apologize for all the kitchen garb in the first photo; when you have a tiny kitchen as ours is you make do!)

Thanks for the tip! I, too, am a glass-of-pinot-every-once-in-awhile girl, so this sounds perfect.

I love black box too! I’d forgotten about it actually. Thank you for the reminder 🙂

I knew I liked you for a reason…Wegman’s and white wine!! LOL! Wegman’s is my favorite grocer, but we can’t buy wine in stores here (boo). Thanks for the tip on the wine, though….I’ll have to check out our state store and see if they have it!

you are so lucky to have a wegmans by you! I used to love going there in college but we don’t have any up here.

Kelly – they just started selling alcohol in the store but forever you had to go next door to purchase it. Christie – I know its going to be hard to leave because I’m so attached to Wegmans!
