Juliet Wine Reviews
I brought this out at a dinner party and everyone loved it! I got the Rose, it was sweet and refreshing.
I may have received a faulty product because I don't see anyone else mentioning this in their review. But the box came all disheveled- the bottom was already popping out of the box. I thought I had fixed it and brought it to a friend's bday at the beach and the whole box fell apart in the sand. The cold bag got sandy, the valve wouldn't stay in place as we poured, so it became a 2 person job. The rose itself wasn't my favorite, I prefer a dryer rose- this one leaned more sweet. I was happy to have purchased as a Thingdrop because I would not have paid full price for the presentation. Pretty bummed with this one!
Turns out it might be hot-girl-boxed-wine summer?? Let's be serious, no one sees a boxed wine and thinks, "I want to try that!" But I think Juliet Wine will change people's perspective, the rose was delicious, and I love that it stays good for so long after opening. I've never considered the material usage/waste that goes into making glass bottles and appreciate Juliet for bringing it to my attention.
I'd love to see a Chardonnay next! I was telling some friends that it stays good for six weeks after opening and their first question was "how do they know that?" and I honestly didn't have an answer, so it might be nice to list the research and testing that went into it.

I honestly do not have a superior wine palette, so all I can say about the taste is that it is drinkable, and I did drink it. Apparently I did not drink the pinot fast enough because after a few days it did start to taste like grape juice. The sauv is nice and lasts longer in the fridge, but if we're making wine in a pretty box meant to be seen, it's a shame it's stuck in my fridge. Personally I'm more for the bottle in experience, design, and flavor.
I do like shaking up the notion of boxed wine, I'm just not sure I understand enough of the "why" beyond it looks nice on the table. I also understand the commitment to sustainability, but could use more of an explainer on how this system is more sustainable than regular bottled wine. Or is it?
I got Juliet with a Thingdrop. I was really excited about the shelf life... 6 weeks! WOW! SO I needed to put it to the test. TLDR: I am a boxed wine convert. I'd suggest sharing Juliet with friends -- it held its own and I would buy it again, but it's not the most interesting wine to drink week after week (but what's great is you can, because it did stay fresh!). Weekly feedback below: Week 1: bright, but very mild in flavor. Very drinkable, but also nothing to write home about. It’s definitely a wine you can have a lot of glasses of. Paired with spicy Asian style noodles. Week 2: even milder, almost creamy but NOT oaky. Still tastes fresh, but less intense. Paired with crackers and cheese. Week 3: creamy again, very gentle. Still not really noteworthy. Paired with Mexican. Week 4: Refreshing. But I didn't pair it with anything. My evening was also maybe a little sad... I standing in the kitchen, cleaning up, and just sipped boxed wine as I worked. I'm glad it was not Franzia. Week 5: Starting to get sick of it... The flavors were still not that noteworthy, mild on the palate, but it's not bad. Just uneventful. Paired with leftovers off of the kids plates - mac & cheese, carrot sticks, half grapes, and impossible nuggs. Week 6: Still going... I tried it and haven't finished the bottle (bag?). Flavor remains the same, I'm impressed.
I'd love some french varietals or different producers from California. I think this is an incredible delivery mechanism for wine, but the wine itself is a little flat. Not bad and I'd be happy if I was served this as a work cocktail event, it's just not the most exciting bottle of wine to hit my lips.
I picked up the Pinot and it did not disappoint! It's light for a red and pairs well with a meal or on its own. Love the look of the container. It doesn't feel like an eyesore sitting on my counter. I'm feeling like this is the perfect thing to tote to someone's house for a kiki.
I hope this becomes available in stores. I would love to buy more, but I typically don't order much wine online unless I'm sending a gift. If it does show up in stores, I'm ready to stock up.
I tried the PInot Noir and the Rose. The wine is fine. It's drinkable, on par with an $8 supermarket bottle. IMO the upcharge isn't worth it for the very nice packaging.
I don’t drink often and don’t consume very much when I do so I loved that with the boxed rosé I didn't have to feel pressured to finish an entire bottle or figure out how to store a partial bottle since this stayed fresh in my fridge for about 6 weeks. The packaging was so cute and didn’t take up a ton of room in my fridge. The actual taste was pleasant. If I could find Juliet wines in stores I would absolutely buy it regularly but as an apartment dweller who lives in a building where front door access to the building is not possible for delivery drivers, the hassle of having to sign for the wine after days of missed delivery attempts just wouldn’t be worth it for me again.
I got this with the thingdrop and got all 3 flavors and brought to a 4th of July function. Here is the feedback I recedibed: Well rose was sort of sweet but color nice- Sauvignon blanc was fine when compared to the decoy brand which is a good one. I thought Pinot noir was very full bodied and satisfying served at room temp. Others chilled. Easy to open and beautiful packaging. Button on nozzle too small and hard to hold especially for geriatric set Cool design, nozzle piece was a little small and hard to push for old people.
Ecologically sound packaging, well-designed and pleasing to the eye as well... and of course, good wine as well! What more can you ask for... Does take up a bit of room in the fridge if you don't use it all in one go but who's fault is that?!?
