Wine for dummies: The questions about wine you're too embarrassed to ask

Wine for dummies: The questions about wine you're too embarrassed to ask When picking a good bottle of wine leaves you stumped, you may have a few questions. We've asked a wine expert all the things you're too embarrassed to ask.

For years wine packed into bags and boxes have been given a bad rep. People assume they're cheap, poor quality and not worth your time unless you're looking to get drunk for next to nothing. It's true that they are cheaper than their bottled counterparts, but the long-held notion that box wine tastes bad is purely myth.

Sure, the packaging might not be as elegant as the pretty wine labels wrapped around glass (or even portable wine cans), bags and boxes are actually an ideal set-up for wine because it seals out light and air, keeping it fresher for longer-even after it's been opened.

In fact, in Scandinavia, half of all wine sold is bagged and boxed. And now, brands like Barefoot and TK are getting into the game. Start drinking outside of the college-grade vino box with some of our favorite cardboard-container wines.

We taste-tested 7 of Costco's Kirkland wines and found this one offered the biggest bang for your buck Costco wine already has a good reputation, but which Kirkland varietal offers the best value.

1. Bandit

The theory behind Bandit is putting more time and money into the quality of the wine and not on glass and corks. Sold in 1-liter eco-friendly cartons, the California wines include Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, chardonnay, a dry rosé, merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and a red wine blend.

2. Big House

Nodding to its location near a correctional facility, a.k.a "the Big House" or "the slammer," this winery offers fruit-forward wines with subtle hints of oak, self-proclaiming them as "so good, they're almost criminal." Stock up on the red or white blends, or opt for the pinot noir, zinfandel, or chardonnay.

3. Black Box

Ideal for single servings and big bashes, Black Box is available in both portable pouches and large boxes that hold four 750-mL bottles' worth of wine. And with 10 varietals-ranging from cabernet sauvignon and malbec to pinot grigio and riesling-there's a "juice box" for everyone.

5. Fuoristrada

Imported from Italy, these Tuscan and Sicilian wines are made with organic grapes and are poured into Tetra Pak cartons-which use 54 percent less energy, create 80 percent less greenhouse gasses, and produce 60 percent less solid waste volume than a 750-mL glass bottle.

6. Nuvino

Each of the wines in this juice-pouch–looking line hails from a different region, including Chile, South Africa, Australia, and Argentina. The single-serving bag is sealed with a screw cap, which makes it ideal for on-the-go drinking or large-scale parties where a stocked cooler beats a punch bowl.
