That brings up bad memories from my youth! :P

I like most of Trader Joes wine & beer selection. Unique brands sold at a low cost.

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.


Name one decent box 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

I can't find a decent box wine that compares to a $12 bottle of Cabernet. Any recommendations?

I to be fair I haven't tried the black box platinum you posted, but I have tried a slew of box wines. Just bought a House Wine Cabernet today to try out.

A good 12 bottle of wine for me would be

Joel Gott 815 Cab
Sterling Vintners Collection Merlot $9.99
19 Crimes Shiraz  $9.99
Menage a Trois Cab $12
Ste Chateau Michelle Cab $12
