Yes, the World has Ended

I just drank a wine that came from a screw top bottle.  No big deal.  The same wine came in a plastic bottle.  Yes, the World has officially ended.  To be fair, it was a Beaujolais Nouveau--which I'm sure that all of you know is a "fresh" wine, meant to be drunk between the 3rd Thursday of Nov and the New Year.  Nonetheless.... 


 I'm snooty. (or fancy in TX speak).  Plastic bottles of wine are just plain wrong--unless of course you sell it as a "green" thing.  Shipping less weight saves jet fuel (it does).  However, it also saves shipping costs and puts money back into the pockets of the winemaker.  I guess it is a win-win situation...

So, the wine tasted okay--buy it for the novelty.  Don't buy it for the taste.

Interesting, I have never heard of wine in a plastic bottle. If it doesn't taste good, I don't care how it comes in (ie, even if the bottle was 'gold' or splashed with diamonds), I will not buy it, even for the novelty of it...

It's all about the pleasing the palate, not how it was packaged.. ;)

And oh yeah, I believe the world hasn't ended, since I was able to type this.. :)))
