Gotta have glass - keep em in my old socks. I think it adds flavor just as aging in American oak. Another side benefit is that it reduces the number of passer bys that accept a gracious offer of joining you for a glass

Whats greater than sipping a delicate wine glass of a good South American Chardonnay and nibbling on a block of aged Limburg. And, if you use box wine you are less likely to chip the glass and be sued by your significant other for lacerating his (her) lip. I hope this is politically correct as I really hate those kind of arguments.

In addition to the plastic and stainless steel stemware that we have carried in the past, we now have a stemless wine goblet that is glass. Somehow the wine seems better coming out of glass, and I'm less likely to knock it over since there is no stem.

Glass - I prefer my wine bottles to be made of glass. Call me old-fashioned. Wine-out-of-a-box ain't all that horrendous neither. I suppose if you put a bunch of fruit in it I could maybe be talked into slurpin' necter from an old tin can too. Properly decanted and filtered and oxygenated whilst paying close attention to its viscosity of course.

Got any cold ones?

Truth be told most of America's favorite Aussie wines and some really good ones are sold in box style in Aussie Land. Not for wines that improve but great for keeping. Use half the box and the rest of the wine keeps fine, no air inside. I've had some which were a promotional for wine writters and they were no different then the same wine in the bottle. The Romance level is different for the first few glasses, but then it catchs up.

I grew up with the hard-a** Texas LCB, but the recent problem is getting any fermented bevvies past the rigid rangers at the Midwest Moraine View rally. Stick on cola labels help for the lager set ... Italians consume their vino from glasses ... but I'm just not ready to drink my C&#244;tes du Bottom Shelf or Pinot Grigio from an opaque plastic cup. I'm fine with using our double walled stainless backpacker's coffee cups for wine. Any other ideas?

Decanting wine into liter pop containers just doesn't cut it... Ya hear me 2air'? Ideas are most welcome!!!

Really? I've never has any left over - maybe next time I'll buy two.

rickandsandi,

I was at a wine and cheese party around Christmas and the mystery wine was Boone's Farm Strawberry Wine...I WON THE BOTTLE!!! Being from Arkansas, it was really the hot ticket around here back in the late 70's and early 80's. Nobody could believe I got it right.

Took it home and finished off the bottle that night...in a styrofoam cup!

I think you should trickle a small amount over fresh peaches and discard the rest

A little snobbish?

To drink wine we use only glass stems at home and in the AS, They are fragile but elegant.

Our preference is to blend our own wine. The favorite blend at present is Charles Shaw Gamay Beaujolis made from at least 75% California Valdigue grapes, (a seasonal wine), blended with Franzia Vinyard's Chillable Red California box wine.

A private blend should demand silver chalices but one has to conserve somewhere.

In the wine cooler, with glass flutes, is one bottle of Dom Perignon 1996, left over from the James Bond era.

...just can't beat a "good" bottle of 30-dime wine or three-buck chuck. I go w/ whatever I have handy...plastic, stainless, glass but never styro.
