Box wine in Boston?

You've all probably seen the marketing by now ... decent quality wines sold in boxes are becoming more and more popular. (I linked below to one sample, in case folks haven't seen.) The boxes travel well to picnics and bbq's and the wine keeps better than in the bottle, should you ever have leftover wine. While I've never seen "leftover wine" I've heard it exists...

Problem is, I haven't seen these upscale boxes in any of the major liquor stores -- they continue to carry Franzia or some such dreck. My friends at Kappy's tell me there isn't enough demand for them to bring it in yet. Has anyone seen boxed wine locally yet?
