Angel Juice Pinot Grigio is appropriately named – it’s a mild, pleasant wine that some will think is heaven-sent. (After I wrote that line, I found that the winemaker had put similar wording on the box…) The nose is floral with some woody notes and a hint of clove. On the palate, the wine is light-bodied and delicate, with pear, melon and citrus leading into a slightly acidic finish.

Angel Juice Pinot Grigio is yet another one of Underdog Wine Merchants’ eclectic offerings. Angel Juice has its origin in Italy; according to the site, “The Friuli Venezia Giulia region is located in northern Italy where the cool climate and influence of the alps produce wines of refined acid structure and wonderfully defined fruit flavors.” In the 2006 World Value Wine Challenge, it scored 86 Points and was deemed “Best Value 3L White Wine Cask.”

Overall, Angel Juice is a delicate, dry, and refreshing wine that can be enjoyed at any time but might be particularly fun at outdoor summer parties, both for general quaffing and to accompany lighter fare like salads and fruit.

  1. sorry, i disagree with your review. i found the wind to lack flavor, taste flabby, and was very disappointed. the color is a darker yellow with some gold in it, rather than what a pinot grigio should look like. not worth the price.

  2. Hey, this wine is amazing. Make sure you try some out. It’s amazing what they are doing with boxed wine now. This is definetly one of the best boxes I’ve ever had. Very light and delicious.

  3. I agree with this review. This wine is delightful and fruity but still dry and refreshing. I really think it is a great value.

  4. We are bag in the box snobs. We love the convenience of the box. We have tried many different boxes, but had not seen this Angel Juice Pinot Grigio before. Picked it up yesterday at Total Wine in Cary, NC. My husband and I both found it to be very good. It has good somewhat complex flavors, not too dry, and delivers a pleasant finish. Now my problem is going to be trying to find it in our area.

  5. Hello, I live in Nshville, TN.I had seen Angel juice wine in a magazine but have not been able to find it anywhere. Is there any store in Nashville that sells it or a restaurant the serves it? Thank you

  6. I love leaving a box of this on top of my fridge and I just fill a glass with ice and angel juice. Very refreshing drink, great flavour, and extremely drinkable.

    I’d put it up against $6-8 bottles.
