Video: Vlog 4 – Boxed Wine in Buenos Aires

Yes. It had to be done.

In the land of amazing wines we felt the need to experience the lowest of the low.

*Boxed wine.*

All of you have done it. Whether it be a crazy backpacker night out, or a fancy dinner where you passed off boxed as “divine” (not sure HOW but yeah, you get the point), we have all been there.

      EW. Not a fan of fernet. We drank it for the social aspect of it but good lord it tastes like paint thinner.

    I’ve never heard of $2 box of wine! Looks…interesting but sad it wasn’t AWESOME. We need some good $2 wine! Wait, don’t we all?

      You do get “decent” wine for about $2 in Portugal…
      That’s probably why we have so many drunk people!! 😛

        Is it in a box or a bottle?

        • Zara @ Backpack ME May 26, 2012 at 10:30 am #

          Usually bottle! The box ones are mostly used for sangria, in a disguised fruity taste!

      I really didn’t expect it to be awesome… you have to spend $3 for that!

    No, all of us have not done it. Maybe I should have put a boxed wine in the mix when I did my blind wine tasting last year with Ayngelina, Rease, and some of our other friends.

      Aww! Boxed wine is so delightfully tacky that I love drinking it. Now you know for your next blind test!

      • Ayngelina May 28, 2012 at 4:38 pm #

        Ha on Stephanie’s blind taste test we all liked the cheapest best!

    I almost feel like you were committing a sin by drinking cheap cheap wine in Argentina haha!

      I’m sure it is a sin in some circles but they wouldn’t offer it if society as a whole thought so? lol

    Oh, reminds me of my college years. We spent many a frat party downing boxes of Franzia!

      LOL! I only really drank boxed wine in sangria – but that sounds like a load of silliness!

    Damn you China! How is you blocking my watching of people drink swill boxed wine actually helping communism!?


    Did you at least remember to take the bags out of the boxes and inflate them to use as post drinking pillows? Little trick we learned in OZ. 😉

    • Erica May 29, 2012 at 1:01 pm #

      That is a damn shame Greg!

      The interesting thing about the boxed wine is that it has no bag. It comes straight out of the box like boxed milk. Would have loved the pillows though.

    So cheap!!!! I can’t wait to drink cheap wine with you!!! <3

    • Erica May 31, 2012 at 12:07 pm #

      And cheap it will be! *cough*

      I wonder how many hangovers we will have…
