Okay, Okay. I'll admit it.
I just got back from Costco and I purchased three boxes of wine for the party Saturday.

I sure hope that stuff doesn't taste like shit. I bought Corona, too, just in case.

Oh, and if you go to Costco at the end of the week during lunchtime, you can eat yourself sick with the samples. :thumbsup:

5. I don't think there's a damn thing wrong with box wine.
I'm no wine expert (by a LONG shot), but I've had many box wines that were perfectly acceptable.
Good, even.

And I've read that they keep better because air doesn't get to the wine as the bag collapses.

Many of the wine 'experts' said the bottling was going to hell when some vintners began to use poly-whatever stoppers instead of the traditional cork one that 'let the wine breathe'.
And now it's damn hard to find a bottle with an actual 'cork' cork.
Enjoy the wine.
:-)

7. Phurphoo.
If that stuff in the box isn't particularly drinkable you can always a) cook with it, or b) turn it into Sangria.

I'll have my coq au vin and Sangria recipes standing by.
