Target has Wine-In-A-Box. . . .

well, at least in California.

I looked at it on Friday and the price of the small box wasn't that great a bargain--its says its the equal of 2 bottles and it cost $9.99. I know I've bought some decent whites for around that at BevMo or TJs or Cost Plus. But there is something to be said about the sealed box that keeps the air out.

The Target we were at had a white sangria, a pinot grigo, a cab and then there were the "blends." I confess that both my husband and I were frightened by the one that boasted of having three wines in one box. . . no, I don't remember what the "flavors" were. And it is possible that bit of advertising splendor sums up the quality of the wine but does anyone know for sure?

No, we obviously aren't talking high end here but what about for a picnic? General consumption? Something to store in the fridge [thinking white here)? Because sometimes, us budget conscious types trying to save to take a family of five to France for two weeks need to have wine with a meal that doesn't cost $10-$15-$20 a bottle even if it tastes like heaven. . .

What do you think? Is it swill? Are you willing to taste and report back?
