Breaking the Box Wine Stigma

I know that box wine is exclusively thought of as a drink of desparate college students looking for a buzz but I'm here to break the stigma. When I tell people I drink box wine they balk.
I know the impression it gives when someone walks into my home and there's an empty box of Franzia sitting out by the recycling—trust me. But just try to hear me out. I'm well known in my social circles for the sangria that I make and I got tired of using my favorite (expensive) red wines as a cognac delivery system.
So one day I was in the grocery store and decided to take the plunge that make many turn their noses up. I was making sangria for about 40 people and decided to simply get boxes of wine
I found a box wine called Vina Borgia Garnacha. It's a dry Spanish wine that has notes of blackberries, blueberries, and spice. The wine is actually quite delicious on it's own too.
I almost always use this for my sangria. The sangria that I'm know to make is what I like to call a "greatest hits" sangria—all of the best parts and none of the mediocre. I don't use apples, just strawberries, oranges, and raspberries muddled with organic brown sugar and a little simple syrup.
When I unveiled this box wine sangria at the intended event it was a hit. People noticed the difference in the wine and even told me that they actually preferred this version.
