Box of Wine.

We always make our own wine to cut costs as generally at the cabin we are hosting:) when the neighbors "pop by" for a bevie.

So back to the water access cart things in is nearly as inexpensive as u-brew to pack in boxed wine and we have even found some really great options for a bit higher end table wine:) 1 box (4 liters) equals 5.3 bottles and costs around 30.00 for the lower end and 40 for the better wines (better boxed wine that is:)

Plus then we don't have to pack out all of the bottles! All you have to do is bring back the plastic interior and you get your deposit back. and the wine between visits keeps as long as it is in a cool dry place like our cupboard....or gets consumed by the neighbors that know where we keep our boxes.....(but hey if that is the price of a security system, I am good with it)

Now if only they would make box 'o' beer for our barter system!

I totally agree. It is very easy to get a really good wine for not much money.
Several years ago, my husband and I went with a UT vols fan group to a game in CA. We were put up in a nice resort "lodge" in LA. The house wine was a nice CA white zin at $20.00 a bottle. We just knew we would never find it in NE TN. What a surpise to find at $3.00 a bottle at home!

Love to watch my wine snob friends stick their noses deep into the glass after I pour it from an unmarked decanter.

Love to sip a good IPA with good company however.


If a buddy like mine from Alaska happens down, and he whips out one of his big ars cigars, then commences to go thru his ritual of cutting/trimming pre-lighting ceremony of the damn thing, I'm headin' to that enchanted jug that contains a malt of one.
'Cause it's sippin' time!

Wine in a box gets a bad rep for no reason. I'm sure there are good and bad, bottled or boxed.
So does beer in a can.
But florescent lights, ruin beer and wine..
Cans keep light out 100%..
Mylar bag n boxed wine, keeps 99.9% light out.
Far superior packaging for a light sensitive beverage :D

i dont like to drink in the woods...except there was a time a few years back where i got some egg nog and we happened to have some whiskey and we woke up in the nite freezing too death.
so we mixed up a potion of eggnog and a bit snockered and fell into a nice warmed up if i could just get already made eggnog in the summer.
sometimes we do have a beer.i dont like to drink in the day time working about the place but maybe in the eveniing when all the work is done.
we get all kinds of cheap grocery outlet.Lots to choose from for 2-3 bucks.we usually dont get any though.
