I found that many people blogging or reporting online were satisfied with parroting the status quo. I call that lazy research and lazy reporting.

Cork Taint and Box Wine – Is it Possible? Part Two

In addition, the wine itself has direct contact with the plastic bag, which is a permeable, petrochemical-based material. If the wine has any decent acid in it, that immediately should be cause for concern.

99 Keggers of Wine on the Wall…

Beer lovers, after all, get to have growlers filled with their favorite beer on tap and take them home for their personal enjoyment. Why not wine folks?

Can a Boxed Wine be Corked? The (re)Search Begins. Part One
