Dang it, the problem I find with boxed wine, especially the Black Box wine is that there are THREE Bottles of wine in there. It doesnt look like it!
When we were in the grocery store, my SO suggested me buying the black box. $20 for essentially 3 bottles? SCORE! Oh wait, you wont know when youre done with a "bottle."
I dont drink to get drunk, but like to have a few glasses here and there. (Okay fine, I might indulge after a long day and have 4 glasses). Boxes make it harder to gauge what you're drinking. And after 2 or 3 glasses, perception seems to go out the door. I know if i've had a bottle, I need to chug water and head to bed ASAP. That sounds bad.....

I was not impressed with Black Box. And I think it has 4 bottles in it rather than 3. I tried the chard and cab. The cab had some "medical issues" not covered under any health care.
Whoodda thought I would have to do wine box surgery? Well, I am now qualified!
Had to remove all it’s clothes, take out all of it’s guts, do exploratory surgery, fix the hemorrhage (tape), put it all back in the box in it’s original clothes, then test to see if it survived and there were no leaks. It did. Got a glass now. Whew.
Wine box has survived emergency surgery, and it is out of ICU and sitting up on the counter accepting visitors. Me!
Red wine. Black Box. Cabernet. Much better than the chardonnay. Whew.
I woke up to find the black box cab had hemorrhaged all over the counter top during the night. I had to once again removed it's red wine stained clothing (box) and remove the sutures (scotch tape) and once again locate and fix the injured area. I had to use some medical cloth tape and put two pieces of tape on it to fix it. Currently it is resting on the counter, necked of its clothes. If I get some wine I will have to lift with one hand and push the button to go in the glass with the other hand. As long as it is laying down, there is no loss of life wine. So, on the counter it stays until it is empty, drained of it's life.
I love Bota Boxes the most, have Black Box occasionally and when times are tough we go downhill from there...
My son has made a camping pillow from an empty wine bladder filled with creek water.
And we have guinea pigs that love to live in and chew on cardboard-so they have entire cities constructed out of cardboard wine boxes donated by me and my mother. Whenever she empties a box she gives it to me and says "here's more pig habitat!" LOL!
