More than a couple!
Wine in a bag & box (discard the box prior to bringing aboard) was one of the great ideas of the 20th century!
With “Boxed Wines”, the vacuum-packed inner bag (Tetra Pack) shrinks as it's emptied, keeping wine-destroying oxygen out, so opened vino lasts for up to six weeks, compared with two to three days for a bottle.
It’s also flexible (when removed from box) shatter-proof, portable, will never have cork taint, and is more environmentally conscious.
Of course, it's not a vessel for aging wine; the bladder is more permeable than glass.
I drink mostly white wines, and can recommend (INPO):
French Rabbit Chardonnay
Bandit Pinot Grigio & Bandit Chardonnay
Black Box Sauvignon Blanc & Black Box Chardonnay
Bota Box California
Turning Leaf California
Monthaven Winery Chardonnay
My daily, go to wine (“value”) is Cartier L'Ambiance White (Blend of: Shiraz/Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, & Zinfandel) - not for everyone.
