A box wine (cask wine or boxed wine) is wine packaged in a bag-in-box. Wine is contained in a plastic bladder typically with an air-tight valve emerging from a protective corrugated fiberboard box. It serves as an alternative to traditional wine bottling in glass with a cork or synthetic seal. It is sometimes called goon, and goon bag in Australia.
The process for packaging 'cask wine' (box wine) was invented by Thomas Angove of Angove's, a winemaker from Renmark, South Australia, and patented by the company on April 20, 1965.

Australia ~ In 1965 winemaker Thomas Angove radically changed Australian wine packaging with his invention of the one-gallon wine cask. The Angove wine cask consisted of a soft collapsible inner liner of fine plastic film surrounded by a sturdy outer container of cardboard, 'wine in a box.'
Joe S replied:
Oh Geez, I don't know. I never drank that high-class stuff. I'll have to ask my friend Barney, he knows everything. What's the answer Barney?
Thanks Barney. See, Barney knows everything.

Just got back from Corvallis & hope me not too late!
Dr William Angove emigrated to Australia from Cornwall where
he started some vines and prescribed wine and invented the
wine baggie which spooted out the stuff without giving it a
chance to decant! Oh, the horror! He also invented the wine
pillow, and I have enough to start on my pontoon bridge
across Suicide Creek which runs through my five acres of
prime poison oak!
As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by
him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years
left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are
scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other
things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and
provide email lists and groups for those who might put something
together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from
this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to
Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is
overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received.

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note
isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost
it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we
figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just
over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So
here's the signup link for this email list.

It's not easy for a world leader to create a public image that will last long after he or she leaves office. But it's a bit easier for American presidents.
Those who spend time living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue then have the privilege of setting up a presidential library, housing their papers for public study, coupled with a museum -- all in an architectural monument to their glory years.
Often, these libraries are located in the president's home state -- Ronald Reagan's is in Simi Valley, California; Bill Clinton's is in Little Rock, Arkansas; and George W. Bush's library, which was inaugurated in April 2013, is in Dallas, Texas.
Almost two years before he leaves office, Barack Obama seems to have settled on a spot, according to media reports: Chicago, where he launched his political career as a community organizer.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was president from 1933 until his death in 1945, launched the now time-honored library tradition as a way to preserve his archives for generations to come.

When a devastating quake hit Nepal last week, a nine-year-old girl worshipped as a living goddess was preparing to receive devotees at her home in the heart of Kathmandu's Durbar Square.
As the earth shook, the ancient temples and statues that packed the square collapsed, sending a massive cloud of rubble and dust into the air. But the home of the living goddess, or Kumari, escaped with just a few cracks.
"She protected us," said Durga Shakya, the 55-year-old caretaker of the Kumari house, who like all her entourage is from the Newar community indigenous to the Kathmandu valley.
"Even inside, nothing has fallen down, everything is fine."
The Kumari, a pre-pubescent Newar girl, lives in isolation in her small palace and emerges only on feast days when she is paraded through Kathmandu in ceremonial dress.

Britain's new princess will be strong-willed and innovative, a free spirit who will re-energise the royal family, Chinese fortune tellers predicted on Sunday.
Prince William and his wife Kate's daughter was born Saturday, falling under the Chinese zodiac sign of the sheep and with a personal element of earth, according to the ancient Chinese practice of feng shui.
Her birthday combination is "a very strong one", feng shui expert Thierry Chow told AFP.
"It indicates that she will give good luck to her family, being born in the sheep year has certainly helped to create this lucky combination."
For decades, oyster growers in southwest Washington have battled to control native shrimp that burrow in the mudflats and make it hard for oysters to grow.
Now, after getting state approval, a group of shellfish farmers plan to spray a widely-used neurotoxic pesticide on up to 2,000 acres of commercial shellfish beds in Grays Harbor and Willapa Bay. They insist it's a safe way to keep in check a threat to the area's multimillion-dollar shellfish industry.
But critics, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, worry about unintended harm to other species. The plan is premature, they say, with too many unknowns about the pesticide's effects on other organisms, including those that are a food source for threatened species.
In comments to the state, NOAA noted that state Department of Ecology "is clearly aware that imidacloprid is a persistent broad spectrum pesticide that will kill nearly all benthic (sediment-dwelling) organisms on acreage directly treated."
Research "clearly indicate that effects and damages will not be limited to the treatment sites," added the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
U.S. health officials are now recommending people avoid contact with the semen of Ebola survivors after a woman in Liberia contracted Ebola through sexual intercourse with a survivor of the disease.
In a report issued on Friday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said a review of the 44-year-old woman's case now suggests that the Ebola virus persists longer in semen that previously thought.
CDC said it is conducting further studies to see how long the virus can remain viable in body fluids of male and female survivors and the likelihood of sexual transmission.
Until more information is known, CDC recommends that if male survivors choose to have sex - oral, vaginal, or anal - they should use a condom every time.

The Avengers are mighty, but not enough to beat themselves. The Marvel and Disney sequel earned a staggering $187.7 million in its debut weekend, making it the second biggest U.S. opening of all time according to Rentrak estimates Sunday.
But "Avengers: Age of Ultron" failed to top the all-time record of the first film's $207.4 million debut in 2012.
With $168 million in international sales this weekend, "Avengers: Age of Ultron" has grossed $627 million globally in just 12 days. The film has yet to open in China and Japan.
The rest of the top five was populated with holdovers, "The Age of Adaline," ''Furious 7," ''Paul Blart: Mall Cop," and the animated "Home."
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
1. "Avengers: Age of Ultron," $187.7 million ($168 million international).
2. "The Age of Adaline," $6.3 million.
3. "Furious 7," $6.1 million ($52.8 million international).
4. "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," $5.6 million ($4.3 million international).
5. "Home," $3.3 million ($17 million international).
6. "Cinderella," $2.4 million ($7 million international).
7. "Ex Machina," $2.2 million.
8. "Unfriended," $2 million ($3.6 million international).
9. "The Longest Ride," $1.7 million ($3.5 million international).
10. "Woman in Gold," $1.7 million.
There was much sexual tension between Whitney's Yeoman Rand and Shatner's Kirk as the actress appeared in eight of the first 13 episodes of the 1966-69 NBC space drama. But then she suddenly was released from her contract.
"There was a scene that Shatner and I did - and I remember when it happened - that scared the producers, because they said, 'Uh-oh, they're getting too close. This is getting too hot,'" she recalled in a 2011 interview. "We have to remove her because he's going to look like he's cheating when he falls in love with other women on other planets."
Whitney wrote in her 1998 book, The Longest Trek: My Tour of the Galaxy, that she was sexually assaulted by an executive at Desilu, the production company behind Star Trek, and suffered from drug and alcohol abuse for years before turning her life around.
A native of Ann Arbor, Mich., Whitney landed a job as a teenage singer on a radio station in Detroit and later played Chicago nightclubs with the likes of Buddy Rich and Billie Holliday. In 1951, she appeared on Broadway in the musical comedy Top Banana, starring Phil Silvers, and appeared in the 1954 movie version as well.
Also in the early 1950s, she served as the inspiration for the Chicken of the Sea mermaid in ads for the canned tuna.
