Bota Box Named 'Wine Brand of the Year' by Market Watch Leaders

First Premium 3-Liter Box Wine to Receive the Accolade

Bota Box, the fastest-growing Top 20 wine brand in the world[i], has been named the ‘Wine Brand of the Year’ by Market Watch, a leading U.S. beverage alcohol industry publication. Crafted by Delicato Family Wines, a fourth-generation, family-owned winery that was founded in 1924, Bota Box is the U.S. category leader in premium 3-Liter box wine and is the first boxed wine to receive “Wine Brand of the Year.”

Since its launch more than a decade ago as the first nationally distributed premium wine in eco-friendly, alternative packaging, Bota Box has maintained extraordinary growth even as the brand passed the 11 million case mark in sales in 2020. Bota Box is the U.S.’s number one brand in both sales and growth in the premium 3-liter category. The high quality of Bota Box wines has made it a trusted consumer favorite, driving the highest repeat purchase rate and brand loyalty in the premium 3-Liter box category[ii].

“We are honored to receive this recognition, which reflects not only the success of Bota Box, but also the hard work and partnership of many who have contributed to the brand’s success, including our family of grape growers, our suppliers, our distributor partners, and especially the retail customers who have championed Bota Box over the years,” remarked Delicato Family Wines CEO Chris Indelicato.

Continued Indelicato, “I am grateful to the many retailers who voted to recognize Bota Box and Delicato Family Wines with this honor, as well as to Market Watch for its leadership in celebrating our industry’s greatest brands.”
