    I feel like this would be a fabulous horse show accessory.

    Incidentally, my husband and I are wine snobs--he is a wine expert at a big wine store locally--and we drink boxed wine. There are some quite decent boxed wines out there, and considering how much we both drink, it's economically logical. (;

    Can you repurpose it and put a different bag of wine you like in there?

    If I was thinking the coolest part of that was the strap so I can easily carry it around with me, would I have a problem?

    SarahandSam, recommendations please!

    As I said, the Silver Birch is good... Black Box is good; I usually get the chard. I think there's one called Big House or something (has some sort of jail scene on the front) that was pretty good. Those are all the ones I can remember offhand at the moment, and husband has gone off to work...

    And yeah, if the wine in the purse is bad, I would imagine you can just replace it with a better bag! (:

    I'm still laughing at the purse idea. Not a bad idea, could make a nicer purse! with a refillable bag!! We B Stylin'!

    Oh yes! Please share a list of the 'best boxed' wines!!

    I'll look for the Silver Birch. I enjoy Bota Box merlot, malbec, and pinot grigio but not the chardonnay. I've tried a few others searching for a chardonnay I like but nothing really made me happy. I like a bright, citrusy chard, not sweet and OMGiH not buttery {shudder}

    I can't think of any more brands right now, I'll take a look at the store tomorrow and let you know if OT is still open!

    The purse idea is adorable, but I can't see my husband coming back with it when it's his turn to buy the box.

    We love Silver Birch, too! Other fave is Seven, a red from Spain.

    I'll have to check to see if my stores carry Silver Birch...so far I mainly drink Black Box and I've had Bota a couple times.

    The other place that has decent wine? Costco's house brand. I've been super impressed with all the varietys they have and they're generally less than $12 per bottle. Still more than a box, but less than some of my favorites that disappear way too easily!
