Tetrapaks
I'm not a great fan of wine in litre tetrapaks. Generally, the quality of the wine that producers package this way leaves a lot to be desired. But outdoors in the summer this packaging format makes a lot of sense. You don't want glass around a swimming pool and if you're camping or hiking these cardboard cartons are light and virtually indestructible. And in the sunshine you're more forgiving as to what's in your glass than you would be at the dinner table. Here's a tip on how to pour a tetrapak without splashing wine everywhere. Hold it at the bottom so you don't squeeze the middle, and pour over the side rather than the front of the carton. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.

Domaine de la Grange Vieilles Vignes Muscadet Sevre et Maine 2007
On Saturday Vintages is releasing a Muscadet from the Loire Valley that is great value for the price. It's Domaine de la Grange Vieilles Vignes Muscadet Sevre et Maine 2007. "Vieilles Vignes" means old vines and "Sevre et Maine" are the two rivers that run through the Muscadet region. The wine is crisply dry and minerally with the flavour of stone fruits and lively acidity. It costs $14.95 a bottle at Vintages outlets. It's the kind of wine to serve with seafood or grilled sardines. That's Domaine de la Grange Vieilles Vignes Muscadet Sevre et Maine 2007 from France in Vintages stores. If you can't make a note while you're driving read this review by going to 680News.com and clicking on my link. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($14.95, Vintages #682625)
