Is it the wine snob in me? Why have I never reviewed a bag-in-box wine? Have to admit though that they have this ‘image’, an image that is so much more than just ‘cheap’.
Who buys them? Are they the preserve of those unfussed by what they drink or kept in the fridge for ‘cooking purposes’? Party wines perhaps. I don’t think I have ever brought one. I know little of the market – Stowells of Chelsea I know from my days flogging the stuff as a Wine Shop manager… and doesn’t Hardys of Australia offer a fruit-juice sized carton under their brand name?
It would appear I am about to expand my wine-packaging knowledge as the next Wine Blogging Wednesday has as its theme ‘Box Wines & Non-Traditional Packaging’. Hosted by Box Wines it is certainly going to get me to think outside-the-box (ho ho)!
Any recommendations or other non-traditional packaging I should look out for that grace the shelves of Britain?
(The wine in a tube, Dtour, pictured, is not available in the UK I believe).
