On the one hand, most public parks have rules about open containers, and these juice boxes neatly side-step the issue. Plus, a few juice boxes are much easier to pack into a picnic basket than a full bottle of wine and glasses.
But then again, we feel like there's something a little irreverent about sipping wine through a straw.
A big part of what we love about wine is the experience of drinking it, after all--holding the glass in our hand, hearing the wine glug from the bottle, breathing in its aroma as we take a sip. We would lose this with a juice box.
We've spotted these at Best Cellars and a few other smaller wine stores, but have yet to actually give it a go.
Has anyone tried these? What do you think?
