Well, don't get too high on your horses. There is a great difference between wines and some folks are rather good at differentiating between. It's all well and good to say....just drink what you like. I couldn't agree more. But when someone likes something which tastes like horse piss, I can't help but object to their good taste. ;-)
i have friends in the wine biz..i asked them the same question. not so sure they are still talking to me
backpacking, no wine is going with me in a bottle. not gonna happen. too heavy.
cooking? i can be perfectly happy with a non-crap wine..i dont need to build a pan sauce on a GREAT wine. i would go as far as to say..i refuse to dump a GREAT wine into food. i'd rather drink it. i quit drinking heavily, so i have quite the stash of GREAT wines in my wine fridge.
thanks...i am still looking.
The funny thing about wine in a box, is most places that make a sauce from wine is from a box. Very cost effective and has decent taste, easy to store too.
Chewie's the man.
I'm not sure what the problem is; I drink wine from a box all the time. Sometimes the boxes are cardboard but other times they are made out of wood and the bottles inside come nicely wrapped in paper. Those wood box wines are usually pretty amazing

Trader Joe's has an extremely cheap boxed wine for $10 for 3L. They have a red and a white. I use them mostly for cooking, but they are also pretty darn quaffable. If I were served a glass of either at a restaurant, I would think that they were regular $10-15 retail bottles of wine. Is it '82 Chateau Cos D'Estournel? No. Do I happily play the "1 for you, 4 for me" game when I make coq au vin? Absolutely.
