RIP Thomas Angrove, Father of Franzia


Here at CFW, we'd like to pay a belated tribute to wine packaging visionary, Thomas Angrove who passed away at the end of March. Click on the link below to check out the full piece and an oddly entertaining video on Asylum:

Box Wine Inventor Dies, ATI Wants You to Celebrate His Boozy Creation
By Ryan McKee

The inventor of boxed wine, Australian genius Thomas Angove, passed away last week at 92 years old. Asylum would like to honor his contribution to our reckless abandon (aka "Slap the Bag") by proposing a National Box Wine Day, which will be held, well, today.

So wherever you are right now -- whether it be work, school or watching the baby -- walk outside and buy a box of wine. Immediately chug one-third (equal to one standard bottle), then let another third pour out on the ground for Angove. Finally share the rest with the winos slowly surrounding you. Don't feel trashy or ashamed. Drinking box wine is not nearly as low-class as some would have you believe.
