The quality of box wine really improved last year. Most of the wineries started making tetra packaging for their bottled and boxed wines. The best example would be the popular brands from California, known as Big House Red and Big House White. This type of packaging is also appreciated as these are eco-friendly and are inexpensive as compared to old boxed wines.

The trend was started by the very popular R. Stuart & Co. This winery from Oregon has started the trend of using crystals for closing the wine bottles. They simply stopped using the older cork or synthetic coverings. Besides all these, they used some crystal corks that looked much classier as compared to any other covering.

The best wine trend of 2010 would be the idea of offering wines at the causal eating joints in various parts of the world.
