Let's Think Outside the Box, by Drinking from the Box.

  • Jan 12, 2010 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Think of "Boxed Wines" and it may be hard to shake the image of a big cube of cheap White Zin.

Disclaimer: I have the "Friends Don't Let Friends Drink White Zin" t-shirt - but it can be a good
gateway wine for those with a sweet tooth that you want to join you in your wine explorations.

How nice would it be to have a better quality wine that is out of the box?
A good Chardonnay that keeps chilled in the fridge, or a Cab at the ready on your counter?

Boxes don't let air in, allowing you to experience the wine over weeks, rather than 1-2 days.
They are good for big get togethers, and wont break dangerously if someone gets a little too tipsy.

Well, they are here. We will explore a few different wines not bought in the bottle.

This event is $10 and is being held at Doug Staas's house off of Negley near the zoo.
Hope you can make it!

    Another fun event. The wine raffle was a good idea.

    We had a sample of every type of wine, and Judy taught all of us a little something about wine. It was a good experience.

    I recently inquired about a wine I was drinking at a restaurant, and they told me it was Hardy's Shiraz. When I went to buy it, it came in a box. I was quite surprised, but I realized that boxed wines don't mean bad wines. I'm curious to try new ones.
