On wine containers

Given the historical precedent for change in wine containers, the bottle shouldn’t be heralded as a classic as it is a relatively modern concept.  Although seen as an inelegant solution, the bag-in-box cask should not be dismissed.  Since Louis Pasteur’s famous discovery concerning oxygen’s harmful effects on wine, the industry should be compelled to embrace the progression towards a new container that provides non-cellar worthy wine with better protection from oxygenation.

That’s Emily Kate back in 2014 over on Academic Wino, on the history of wine containers. Just came across her interesting YouTube channel as well.
