    My friend drinks some box wine, it's not too bad, but when you get to the end and pull out the plastic bag with a little chardonnay left in the bottom and have to squeeze it out in your glass it looks like an IV bag!! LOL

        Knowing your jesters, let's be glad the wine is just in a box!

    Why does everyone keep pushing boxed wine on us? We get it, it's teh awesome.

    But wine drinking... it's like a culture all its own. I'm imagining going to an expensive dinner and having the waiter bring out an ungainly box of wine, pour and set on the table. Or a wine tasting where you simply dispense the wine from boxes with taps on the side. And just how long can you store a box of wine before it goes bad, compared to how long you can store most wines in unopened bottles?

    Maybe the box-o-wine is good for wine that you are going to serve a large crowd (without them seeing the container), or if you want something cheap and tasty, but I can't imagine replacing the elegance and class of the glass bottle with a box or plastic bottle for serious wine drinkers.

    Wait, you mean wine isn't supposed to come in a box? Suddenly the world makes sense again.

      I don't think it's the wine. Wanna talk?

        I've managed to convince my co-workers that my red, swollen eyes are due to allergies, I'd rather not disabuse them of that notion. But thanks for the offer.
