Italians have been drinking good wine out of jugs for centuries. It's a way of life. It's Americans that have sullied the large format wine bottle's reputation.
Bonacquisti Wine Co. brought back the good-wine-in-a-jug idea in early 2012, offering a one-liter bottle, filled from one of the rotating taps (both red and white available). Prices start at $20, and include the glass bottle that can be refilled anytime during tap room hours!
Refills start at just $14.99 for another liter — which is a third larger than a typical bottle of wine. Each bottle is hand-numbered and built to last.
Next time you are in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Denver, stop by and help revive the jug that has served Europeans so well for so long.
Only available at the Bonacquisti Tap Room, 4640 Pecos St., Denver 80211.
All prices are valid for $14.99 priced refill options; other options often available
