Moving on to really gritty issues, today I bought a ‘bag in a box’ wine box from a micro-winery in the Penedes. 5 litres for 10 Euros. It’s fabulous. Works out less than 2€ a bottle. I always thought bag in a box wine was rubbish and naff, but this is delicious, and you don’t have the problem of having to polish off a bottle once it’s open – the wine stays in perfect condition for 3 months after opening. Beat that!
I like Penedes but are you sure about the above, would anyone ever get the chance to find out 😉 😆
In our house, 5L of wine has a life expectancy of a few days, so I’ll never find out if it lasts 3 months. Even so, I’m now a huge fan of the bag-in-box format for the house plonk. But it’s so easy to get a glass I’m starting to drink even more…… 😯
The bag in box has been very much accepted in France, I found it more difficult to win over people form the uk – for whom the bottle and real cork are still an ideal.
Bag in Box of Rose in the fridge is a fine indication that summer is here.
