Happy Hour: Le Cask

While I was at the SF Chronicle Wine Competition Tasting, I was lucky enough to try Le Cask wine. I was drawn to it because it was one of the few boxes of wine at the tasting. I tasted their Old Vine Zinfandel and was pleasantly surprised by how it tasted. It was well balanced and a bit peppery, a little sweet with notes of cherry and plum, but very drinkable.

The best part about Le Cask is that for about $25, you get the equivalent amount of wine as four bottles. Definitely worth the price, considering the quality of the wine is much higher than that. Also, unlike bottles, their patent-pending box stays fresh for 4-6 weeks after opening. And bonus, Le Cask is eco friendly. The box is recyclable, takes up 98 percent landfill space and by eliminating glass, they've reduced their carbon footprint up to 50 percent.

The winery is based out of Lodi, CA, and while it's available throughout the Bay Area, they're still looking for a larger distribution. If you do happen to see it, definitely pick yourself up a cask or two.

So does anyone know where you can buy this wondrous wine in Southern California/Orange County? I'm going to try BevMo, seems like a safe bet.. and so fun to shop there!! I love good, inexpensive wine.. definitely a connoisseur of the under-$10 bottles.

I'm with milosmommy. And I like that the packaging is more earth-friendly than glass.

I love how long it stays fresh. I hate opening a bottle of wine sometimes because I can't finish it all by myself and it ends up going bad.

Aww I wish it were available outside of bay area! Boxed wine takes me back to those college dorm parties.
