Box Wines Can Be a Bargain

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

For extreme savings, look to box wines. Boxes once were reserved for the worst plonk on the market, but more wineries are putting good-quality juice into the bag-in-the-box, which saves money over glass bottles and leaves a smaller carbon footprint. Look for vintage-dated wines. (Some might even include freshness dates.) The best brands available in our market are Black Box and Killer Juice from California and Hardy's from Australia.
