We remodeled our patio earlier this year and it’s been so much fun having a nice outdoor space. We’ve been using our pizza oven quite a bit and it’s been nice to have a comfy place to unwind. My dream has always been to have a spot where we can have people over and everyone can kick back and relax.
As a result, we’ve been sipping on quite a bit of rosé so I was excited to learn that Black Box Wines make a rosé! Ever since I went to the Zero Waste grocery store tour, I’ve been trying to find little ways to cut down on my consumption. I was pumped to learn that Black Box Wines require a lot less energy to produce and transport so they’re a good eco-friendly pick. They’re fully recyclable and they help yield 85% less packaging waste.
I also love that boxed wine stays fresh for up to six weeks, which is great since each of these boxes contains 4 regular sized bottles of wine. It’s perfect for a party when you’re not sure quite how much you’ll need. If you have leftovers, it’ll keep for over a month! If rosé isn’t your thing, they also have Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Malbec, Red Blend, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Shiraz, and Red Sangria!
I’m pretty sure this rosé would go with just about anything but I paired it with these easy antipasto skewers. I love appetizers that can be made ahead of time so I don’t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen when we have friends over. You can make these up to a day in advance, just wait until you’re ready to serve before adding the balsamic glaze!
If you can’t find small skewers, you can make mini versions on a toothpick by using just one tomato, one mozzarella ball or tortellini, and one basil leaf. These skewers paired perfectly with our rosé.

Balsamic glaze is often sold near the balsamic vinegar. It’s a reduction of balsamic vinegar so it’s a thicker consistency and it’s slightly sweeter flavor.
