California Springtime Adventures & Relaxation with Bota Box

Living in Los Angeles, California is an insanely drastic change from living in Chicago.  I've been a Chicago resident my whole life and being in California is inspiring me to take advantage of every single second that I'm able to be outside.  Springtime in SoCal opens up so many new chances for adventure, travel, and appreciation for our environment.  

I've also loved spending time with some amazing girlfriends and of course, my wonderful boyfriend, and thanks to my friends at Bota Box Wine I've discovered the perfect companion to bring along with me for my adventures... to kick things up a notch ;)  Bota Box Wine is one of the coolest brands I've discovered in a LONG time.  It comes is a compact, environmentally friendly package that holds up to 3 liters of wine. It's also 100% recyclable as they're trying to change the entire impact of wine production on the Earth through smart and alternative packaging. 

The wine is absolutely perfect for me because it gives me the ability to try different varietals all for a super affordable price.  I'm not a wine snob or connoisseur, but I know what tastes good, and every type of Bota Box is deelish.  From their Malbec, to their Sauv Blanc, and their Dry Rosè to their Pinot Noir.  Each one is a tasty and refined as one you would order in a great restaurant...but with a HUGE added benefit.... PORTABILITY!  

In case you haven't noticed, I love to travel.  And Bota Box is perfect for traveling and outdoor activities.  It goes places where it's difficult or impractical for you to bring glass bottles.  Whether you're going on a road trip for an outdoor music festival, or you're going on a hike in the mountains that culminates with a victory cheers, or just having a picnic in your own back yard...Bota Box will be your best buddy! 

Check out the photos and captions below to see where I brought Bota Box along to make a great day even better.  Here's to your next adventure!!!

Backyard picnic!!  While waiting for my friend to show up, I was able to catch up on some travel and cooking mags while sipping on some Bota Box Pinot Noir on a warm spring afternoon.  The crisp and light Pinot was perfect for a sunny day picnic.

I'm hiking Temescal Canyon to get to one of the most scenic viewpoints in all of LA.  Of course, I've got my Bota Box in my backpack and it was so easy and convenient bringing it up to the top of the mountain.

I made it!  Just setting up our little wine picnic and enjoying the view of the Pacific.  Of course, Bota Box Dry Rosè was the perfect choice for this adventure.
