Okay so I am not wine snob nor am I am super cheap wine ... kinda gal. But have y'all tried the wine cube from target stores? Hubby brought home a couple of little personal size wine cubes for us to try. And what a nice surprise! Had the Chardonnay and cab sac. Perfect for camping, light, no bottle to break or have to get rid of. Just a cute little box! Yes... Box wine! Look for the and give em a try.

Tanks. Good suggestion for the golf cart where carrying something without a lid gets...well...splashy.

I buy the Turing Leaf Chardonnay all the time at home, and have found it's the PERFECT size to just set in the fridge too. I can get the box and it equals 3 of the .750 ltr bottles for the price of 2 of the .750ltr bottles.

We will take a box wine camping also usually the Black Box. We are more red wine people so I don't know if differences in quality are more pronounced in white vs red in a box?

Someone mentioned cheap: We like the Winking Owl merlot from Aldi for under $3 per bottle ($2.89, I think), and it's as good as any $25 bottle of merlot we've had. It's California merlot and probably just labeled differently than the same wine that comes out under more expensive labels. Just wish it came in a box for camping convenience. Winking Owl has several other reds and whites for the same price.

A lot of the boxed wine is pretty good now from what I've heard. We make our own and take it in half gallon & gallon jugs then have to store the jugs we we can reuse them. I wonder if the boxes are available for home brewers?!? I'll have to investigate.

Trader Joe's 2 buck Chuck (Actually 3.29 a bottle now ) is great wine also. Doesn't come in a box but buying it by the case saves a lot. Hopefully they will switch to the new screw off corks coming out. That will save having to carry the wine openers. Always looking to trim a little weight from the camper

Yeah, those pesky little cork screws are heavy. Sorry, couldn't resist.

Ouch.. that's gonna leave a mark I couldn't resist with all the talk about pulling weight etc But if you can remove the cork screws it leaves just about enough weight for another bottle

We've used Corbett Canyon cardboard casks for quite a while. Unfortunately, they don't fit in the RV fridge very well. On our last trip, the cask slipped against the fridge inner wall and the valve was opened. Two litres of wine were swilling around in the fridge. I guess we should stick with 1.5 litre bottles!

Our local Rite Aid sells the CC Pinot Grigio 3 litre box for $9.99 (the other Corbett Canyon wines are the same price). Can't beat that with a stick! Even Costco's best price on a P-G (Cavit) is over $9 for a 1.5L bottle.
