Interested in the red wine box recommendations. I've grown tired of Namaqua over the years. I famously drink red wine from breakfast till dawn at festivals so it helps if it's nice. I like full bodied and a bit sweet not sickly. I used to love Zinfandel until it seemingly fell out of fashion and I can rarely find it at a sensible price. I often like a Merlot or a Shiraz.. but they do vary a lot in quality especially in boxes.
Bringing in beer or cider - excepting a few for fuel- is madness IMHO. Not worth the effort for all that water- and I prefer it fresh and cold from the bars anyway.
