Happy Hour: Wine Cube

Imagine this scenario: You're out camping and you're ready to unwind for the night with a glass of your favorite wine. You find your best camping glasses/plastic cups and are ready to pour when you realize... there's no bottle opener!!! Sure you can go all MacGyver and find ways to open the bottle, but just think, if only you had brought a box of wine instead...

That's right, a box of wine. These days boxes of wine don't carry the same sort of stigma that they used to. In fact in scenarios like the one above they're actually quite handy. They're easy to transport and have a low-risk of being damaged, you usually get more for your money, they can be sealed back up and will therefore last longer.


So now that you're keen to the idea of box wines, let me introduce you to the Wine Cube. Available in both 3 liter (4 bottles) and 1.5 liter (2 bottles) sizes, the Wine Cube is a Target exclusive and costs between $10-$16. There are twelve varieties to choose from — including Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, Shiraz, and Sangria — but it is the Pinot Grigio that took home the Double Gold Award at the 2007 San Francisco International Wine Competition. In fact, it was the only boxed wine to win a Double Gold Award that year.
