In my experience, the box wine is easier to use, seeing as it is in a box with a spout already. I think that it is cheaper for the most part too. Your question, are you asking about the health benefits?
I think the health benefits would be the same whether it's boxed wine or bottled wine. I think health benefits vary more with the type of wine. Certain kinds of red wine are better than others, and for the most part I think red is always better than white.
I'm surprised to hear that boxed wine is popular where you live. Out here bottled wine is definitely more dominant. I agree that boxed wine is often cheaper, I think you get much more wine compared to an average bottle.
I have never had box wine. I've only had wine from a bottle, believe it or not! I guess I would try it. I can't imagine it would really be all that different. The box isn't as pretty as the bottle to me but either way it will probably achieve the same effect!
I have not had box wine. I've heard good things about it though. I do not know any aditional health benifits, but it does last longer once opened, as air does not replace the space lost in the bag like it does a bottle. I do hear some great wines are boxed.
I like Franzia. There are good box wines and terrible box wines. So if, by chance, you start with the terrible box wine then you might get the wrong idea about box wines all together. They are nice to have for parties if you have not made your own wine.
To be honest, I've never tried box wine. In terms of health benefits, I don't think that it matters whether wine is in a box or in a bottle. Box wine may be more convenient. You don't have to worry about breaking a bottle. Box wine seems to be more eco-friendly, too.
Our family prefers boxed wines over bottled wines for these reasons:
“The cardboard, wine spout and bag used in a 3 Liter wine box costs around $1.25. The glass, corks, capsules and labels used in 4 750mL bottles of wine costs around $6. So with boxed wines, a lot more of your money is going toward wine and less toward packaging.”

I remember at one time boxed wine was frowned upon but to me its just the packaging. There is a local winery nearby that sells their wine in large boxes for a really good price. I don't taste any difference.
The box wine has become somewhat expensive but I love the Franzia Sunset Blush. We used to play beer pong and flip cup with it because it was cheap and strong. I haven't broken down the price per oz so maybe it still isn't bad but I love box wine.
I even see some decent brands go to the box for easier packaging and larger sizes...
It seems like a lot of people here like boxed wines. I like them because they hold a lot more than your typical wine bottle. It is also cheaper. The taste is slightly better (in my opinion) in bottled wines, though. If I want to drink a glass of wine at the house, I would go with boxed, but if I were having a party or giving it as a hostess gift, I would get a bottle.
