Prepare to have your mind blown. I should open this Wine Of The Week by explaining that David (our sommelier) sliced his finger open and is hopped up on pain pills. It is really the only justification for this week’s wine. Or at least, that was my initial reaction when he told me about it. This week’s wine is a wine in the box.
Are you still reading? Oh, good. Cause this is actually totally worth it. The wine is Bandit Pinot Grigio, Califorina, N.V. and it is sold in a 1L box (a normal bottle size is 750mL, so this is 1/3 larger). And it cost just $7!!!! When David first told me about it my exact reaction was “A box wine?! Seriously?!?!?!?!” David explained, “Think bargain wine from reputable vintners . Recession wine. Breaking Stereotypes. And it is better than the oh so popular Santa Margarita– and a whole lot cheaper!” So, if you are willing to let go of your pride, give this crisp, clean, everyday drinking wine a try!
