We recently had guests share a jug of wine from Three Sisters Winery that was very good. Like a growler for beer this was wine in a jug. Please note the information below from the winery that explains this new way of purchasing wine.
Introducing GEORGIA JUG! Perfect for sharing with friends and family, this wine is something special we have dreamed up for the fall and holiday season. If you enjoy Fat Boy Red or Blood Mountain Red, we think you’ll love GEORGIA JUG. It is an off dry Cabernet-Merlot-Pinot blend with rich color and flavor, perfect for sipping fireside with good friends and your favorite snack food. Or if you just have a hankering for that jug of wine and a deck of cards. GEORGIA JUG is a Mighty Fine Table Wine!
Each GEORGIA JUG purchase includes four limited edition sipping sized glasses while supplies last. And to increase the fun, you personally fill the handsome old-time 3 liter jug from the barrel and then stamp the label with a Face Jug design and apply it to the bottle! But the best part? GEORGIA JUG is “earth friendly and eco-green.” Simply bring the jug back for a refill at a discounted price.
