Stackable, Prefilled Wine Glasses

Date: Fri, Aug 31, 2012 Wine Tasting

Wine merchants are always trying to come up with novel and convenient packages, and Stacked Wines has done just that: a 187ml container that is shaped like a stemless wine glass. The containers stack securely, and four of them are equivalent to a standard 750 ml bottle of wine. That's a slightly larger pour than [...]

Vendi Pinot Grigio 2009

Price: $6 Maker: CL Dolo, Italy Variety: Pinot Grigio Packaging: Bottle, artificial cork Alcohol: 12% Our Rating: 8.2 out of 10 Vendi Pinot Grigio 2009 Delle Venezie isn't typical of the varietal.

Buying Wine at Sam’s Club

Date: Wed, Dec 14, 2011 Wine Tasting

I've always found Sam's Club to be a good place to buy wine. They have an interesting, if limited, selection ranging from inexpensive, mass-market wines to pricier fare. Some of their best offerings are inexpensive wines that are hard to find elsewhere. For example, after trying one bottle of the rather amazing Cameron Hughes Lot [...]

Price: $9 Winery: Tilia, Mendoza, Argentina Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon Packaging: 750 ml bottle, screw cap Alcohol: 13.9% Our Rating: 8.5 out of 10 Perhaps the strongest appeal of Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 is the ripe berry and licorice nose.

How Long is Boxed Wine Good?

Date: Wed, Nov 30, 2011 Wine Tasting

How long does box wine last? One of the huge advantages of boxed wine is that it lasts for a month or even more after being opened. This makes it very practical for glass-a-day drinkers who would find storing partially opened bottle wine problematic or wasteful. But, box wines aren't perfect - it turns out [...]
