Greeting Hounds!,
My family goes through about a case of wine (9.0 ltrs) per week. Even using magnums, that is a lot of glass that has to be transported, stored, drained (the good part) and disposed of / recycled. I suspect I need to talk to a distributor or wholesaler. Can/will they sell to the public? I haven't been impressed by the Black Box, Franzia, Peter Vella or Delicato retail boxes. If I could get from 30 to 50 ltrs of Mondavi Woodbridge Sauvingnon Blanc or BV Century Cellars Cab, I would be on very happy camper with a decreased trash footprint.

About 20 years ago, Liquor Barn used to carry 30 ltr boxes of things like San Antonio "table" wines but I don't see such packaging any more -- another reason I deeply mourn the loss of Liquor Barn....

Any way (sniff), any suggestions or sources?

Eat and drink with gusto!
