Boxed wine – Bacchus for the masses or swill for the asses?

As we cruise into the season of overindulgence and gorging a little debate has sprung up within my sphere of friends.

Is boxed wine really wine or just an alcoholic cheap grape juice? Now the wife and I just have to have our vino in bottles with real corks but others just want the easily stack-ability of the boxed product.

So what do you think? Do you want a good bottle of Old World wine wizardry or does the outback spirit of a boxful of joy jerk your chain.

Oh and on the subject of our upside down friends. Australian wine is like listening to a Bluegrass AC/DC cover band. You recognise the songs but they just don’t sound right!

So come on let’s ditch the politics and ferment an answer to the important questions for us all. Is boxed wine really wine? Would Bacchus approve of his wine out of a container for the commoners?
