A Smarter Way to Drink
Quality may not be the first word that springs to mind when you think of bag-in-box wine … but Laylo are here to change that! Laura and Laura (yes, really!) met whilst working at Naked Wines and falling in love with all kinds of wines from around the world. Just a few years later, their joint vision of a world in which high-quality, premium boxed wines which are just as desirable as bottles led to the inception of Laylo in July 2020.
Everything is sourced, designed, tasted and loved by Laura and Laura. Nothing is given the Laylo stamp of approval until the girls are completely happy, and their passion and knowledge has created a fantastic range of painstakingly chosen wines from small producers around Europe that put many other boxed wines to shame! Not only are the wines delicious, but of course the environmental benefits of Laylo are many; minimal wastage, dramatically lower carbon footprints and significantly reduced energy usage are just a few of the ways in which boxed wines stack up against the manufacture and usage of traditional glass bottles.
NO.3 Vino Roso Vulcanico (2.25L BIB)
This is an expressive blend of Sicily’s two signature indigenous grapes, Nero d’Avola and Nerello Mascalese, which are grown on the rich volcanic slopes of Mount Etna. This wine offers fresh spiced cherry and raspberry flavours alongside soft tannins which evoke the romance and warmth of the island. It’s a delicate, light red with complexity in abundance.
NO.5 Pinot Blanc (2.25L BIB)
There’s something magical about discovering a wine that is slightly ‘off the beaten track’, and the Lot #5 is just the job, with delicate white grape sourced from a passionate producer in Slovenia and turned into a thing of beauty. A dash of Furmint is added to give extra generosity and softness to the bright, high acidity and zesty citrus flavours of Pinot Blanc. It’s a clever and delicious blend, offering honeysuckle, jasmine and lemon curd notes and a creamy palate.
