Target's Wine Cube
Always a fan of the hip-yet-cheap Target stores, I was intrigued recently by the Wine Cubes in their new wine aisle at their Reston, VA location. A sleek version of wine in a box, it comes in three sizes: 3 L, 1.5 L and 250 ml; and a handful of varietals. It's perfect for a picnic or the beach, where you can enjoy a few glasses without breaking the "no glass on the beach" rule (and for those bold enough, you could totally get past the "no alcohol on the beach" rule, since the packaging looks like a big juice box...not that I'm condoning that, mind you.)
If any of my readers have tried these wines, drop me an email or post a comment on the blog and let me know how they are. I posted an entry about the similar French Rabbit wine in the Tetrapak a few months ago--that wine was quaffable if not cerebral, and I expect this to be the same. But who knows? I may be pleasantly surprised.
