In Roman times, the intensity of the aroma and ruby red colour of this wine perfectly matched the atmosphere inside the Colosseum as gladiators fought and free citizens quite possibly swigged Refosco. Famously, it was also the favourite tipple of Emperor Augustus’ wife Livia. Full-bodied with plum and almond notes, Refosco has been produced in North East Italy for over 2,000 years, and you can match it with roasted anything – veggies, meat or game. In this box, you will also get a snack and our Flavourly magazine that you can enjoy reading while having a glass!- Learn more about When In Rome
Forget everything you know (or think you know) about box wine. All of our beautiful craft wines come from small, independent producers and are brought to the UK by train or ship, resulting in a 90% decrease in CO2 emissions compared to drinking wine from single use glass bottles. Once opened, the wine inside each box stays fresh for up to six weeks and, because box wine is far cheaper to package and transport, you’ll get more wine for your money.
