Wine: The box that rocks!

Whether it's red or white, boxed wine is very green!

In restaurants and stores, people ask for a bottle of wine. But in the past year, all sorts of forces have combined to change the way some wine is packaged.

Yellow Plus Blue Wine comes in boxes. They handle it like a bottle and the wine pours just fine.

Boxing cuts costs and does a whole lot more. Yellow Plus Blue comes from organic wineries in Argentina. It's sent by ship to Canada to be boxed, then delivered to the United States for sale.

Wine lovers know Argentina's vintages and more are buying "green."

Center City's Tria already serves Yellow Plus Blue and more restaurants are expected to follow.

Boxes won't work for every wine, but they're right for the overwhelming majority.
