Travels in the South

01 Feb

Hello friends and welcome to another edition of Travels in the South.  Today we are making a twist in a regular food posting.  Today mom wants to share something she found at our local market over the weekend – so you know it’s gotta be good, right?  Every now and then, mom likes to partake in the grapes and by that I mean the spirits… no not that kind of spirits – the alcohol spirits. Snorts with piggy laughter.  The downside is that if she opens a bottle of wine, it usually goes bad before she finishes it.  She doesn’t drink very often and we all know mom who likes to save money.

So this weekend, she found these little jewels in the wine aisle.  They are new to our area.  They are individual one serving little ‘glasses’ of wine.  The bottles are actually plastic.  You pop the plastic top, take off the safety covering and there you go – drink on up my friend.  If you can’t finish it, put the plastic top back on and put it back in the fridge.  Now aren’t those the cutest things you’ve ever seen?  They come in four flavors right now:  cabernet sauvignon, red sangria, chardonnay and moscato.  AND they cost about $3.00 a glass.

Mom had to buy one of every flavor for the new fridge.   You know just in case the desire hits her and she needs some vino.  What do you think?  Have you seen these in your area?

    a lot of wine I see people drink around here comes in a box….just press a tab and wine comes out and then leave it in the fridge…well, that’s what my neighbor does…and he likes his wine!! Never seen it sold like that yet!! but then I haven’t been in a liquor store in probably over 15 yrs!!

      Box wine would ruin before mom could finish it – snorts with piggy laughter. But here’s some trivia for you that I saw on the television. Where was box wine invented? AUSTRALIA. Can you believe that? And these little wine bottles mom found in the grocery store. XOXO – Bacon

    What a great idea. We don’t drink much here but when we do open a bottle, usually half goes to waste.

    • Piglove

      Exactly! That’s what happens here. So these are just ideal when you want to partake but not ruin a half bottle of wine. XOXO – Bacon

    I’ve seen these at our wine store and Fresh Market.

      Mom bought quite a few – not that she’s a heavy drinker by any means. She just likes to have them on hand if she wants one… like every blue moon or something like that – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    What a great find for someone who only imbibes on occasion.

    Or, if you want to be very cheap about it, Holland House cooking wine should work too, lol. :). They have red, white, marsala.

      Snorts with piggy laughter. That would probably turn mom away from wine forever. Hilarious. The bad thing is she has bottles of wine in the cellar – she needs to start drinking – LOL

This piggy would love to snort with you :)
