Based on the thread title, I was expecting to see that stuff that comes in a "box."

Actually, more and more wine makers are boxing some of their wine and they're  not bad.  Not like the old days.  It's economical and it stores much better than a bottle after being opened since there's no air introduced.

I like a good black box.  I just prefer it be shaved and not wine.

boxes and screw tops are far superior to bottles and corks...


less aesthetic but more efficient


some cheap wines are pretty decent... the pricing of most bottles has more to do with the house than the quality of the wine itself

Best Red my wife and I have had is Primal Roots. It's technically a "blend" and the only way to get me to have a glass with dinner 2x a week. She says it fights cancer, good for my heart blah blah... 

I love my whiskey but since I'm trying to lean out, I have to give it all up for awhile being that its REALLY hard to have just one drink  ;D

My friend bought a huge bottle of that five-cents-per-gallon champagne in college and I must've drank about a third of it.

Bad, bad, bad.

There is a local winery I occasionally patronize.  The wine is adequate and not to expensive.   I finished off a bottle last night
