I read this article
that suggests we may soon be able to buy wine in cartons similar to the ones that usually contain fruit juice. The cartons will contain the equivalent of two glasses of wine. Regular readers on my blog might have noticed I like wine, so will probably expect me to welcome this idea. Quite the opposite actually, wine is meant to come in bottles. I have a hard problem dealing with wine that comes in a bottle with a screw top, mainly because it often does not keep so well. Wine in cartons is a different matter; I don’t see me picking up a carton of wine to go with my lunchtime sandwich or buying one to drink with an evening meal. I will stick to buying wine in bottles, with proper corks.
