Box Wine! Makes some people shudder! Where’s the romance. Where’s the sex, Where’s the cork! Granted there is some pretty scary box wine out there…However, Mary and I reviewed the 2009 Wurtz (please add an umlaut) Dry Riesling…three liters in a box for a mere #26.50! Such a bargain! First off the wine stays very fresh for a very long time because the bladder inside the box allows very little air. Second this is a perfectly decent Riesling which makes a great hauswein!
Mary tasted the Roederer Non Vintage Brut Champagne and didn’t invite me over. From what I can tell she and her husband Kevin had a fabulous time. $40 for the privilege but worth it. I stayed home with my box wine and sour grapes! Harumph!
