    Nothing wrong with boxed wine as long as it tastes right and gets the affect desired.

    Boxed wine…
    Cheese-stuffed pizza crust…
    Velveeta…
    Cheeze Wiz…
    Wonderbread…
    Twinkies…

    No one does tacky food better than Americans.

    @Andrew: Until we start eating cat/dog and testicles as delicacies I’m not sure I’m going to be able to agree with you.

  • TANK

    At least there’d be some nutrition in them. Have you eaten animal testicles before? Then stfu.

  • TANK

    boxed wine is great before a nice long workout.

  • galefan2004

    @TANK: Do humans count as animals? And, define exactly what you mean by eating please.

  • TANK

    Hilarious, I’m sure.

    @TANK: Nah it wasn’t. You are just saying that to avoid hurting my feelings. I thought you liked hurting my feelings? I’m disappointed.

    @galefan2004:

    No, I’m not. And I don’t care either way.

    Its not the box itself that counts, but the quality of the wine that goes into the box. Air sealed containers actually are better for the wine, but you need to put good wine in the box. Up until recently the only wine that went into boxes was swill. As the wine gets better, then boxes will become more acceptable.

    Kids seem to be coming out sooner and sooner. For example, see the 8-year-old style bickering above.

    You peasants defending boxed cat piss almost made me adjust my monocle. The very idea that I have to enter this thread and upbraid you is enough to make me twist the cap on this fine, vintage 2009 bottle of Boone’s Farm Strawberry Hill.

    I’ll always think of my Belgian host father describing American boxed wine- “merde du pays”.

  • Marius

    The 2008 was sublime.

  • TikiHead

    Sunset Magazine had an article about box wines — apparently the wineries have had a glut of excellent grapes, and have been moving into the boxed wine market with really good wine.

  • TANK

    @TikiHead:

    sunset magazine? Is that like the AARP monthly? Sunset for old people who are dying and want to know about the latest in hip replacement technology?

    but yes, as someone who knows wine, you can’t dismiss as quickly as you once could…quickly, but not AS quickly.

    Dear Kathy,

    You really should hook-up with a winery and sell “MG (Maggie Griffin) boxed wine, the best vintage since last year”

  • Hermitage

    I hope that it becomes more and more acceptable. It’s better for the environment and having tasted a french Cabernet Sauvignon, it can be really good.

  • galefan2004

    @Matt Deco: You could try having a sense of humor instead of being a judgmental prick.

  • Andrew

    @galefan2004:
    Ahh… but I said “tacky”, not “disgusting”. :)

  • Kid A

    @TikiHead: I’m with you. A friend of mine gave me a “wine box” at a party, and it was really tasty. The keg was flat as it was, and as I sat with two friends also with their wine boxes, we had a great conversation. The college party drink for the non-hedonist.

  • Andy

    As the roommate of a viticulture/enology major, boxed wine may be tacky, but it compares well with bottled wine of similar price points, years, and regions.

    Plus, a guy thought I was cute for drinking wine out of a 375ml box with a straw like a juice box. Tacky sure, but still…
