  • @benwrenwine, with its innovative packaging, is a new bag-in-box wine brand that’s thinking outside the box and challenging conventional wine drinker’s mentality. This is NOT a cheap, low-quality product. This is ‘premium’ Sauvignon Blanc in a funky 3-litre box, so standout in design that it recently won a Gold award at @winemag.co.za’s annual wine label awards. This is no marketing spiel either, but rather a forward-thinking brand offering a premium product in an unconventional and convenient manner. @jeanritine  @feedthatbird #brenwren #baginbox #innovativewinemarketing #unconventional #wine #sauvignonblanc #winebrands #outoftheboxthinking
