We will be at a convention next week staying in a hotel where bringing you own wine is not the easiest thing.
A perfect solution for this, is the lovely boxed wines which are so easy and unobtrusive to bring along and offer so many benefits, such as:
No glass to break or be restricted.
Long shelf life even after opening.
No disposable/recycling issues.
etc, etc, etc…
Our chapter usually hosts a welcome party and I plan to take three, 3 liter boxes (equivalent to a standard case of 12, 750ml bottles, but weighing far less and being much more compact) as follows: Rosé from France, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz blend – both from South Africa and proven winners!
Have a great summer everyone!
