Kevin,

Thanks.. that's exactly what my plan was, prob 5 liters at a time for short term dispensing.. it's more convenient for my wife since she doesn't have to open up a whole bottle when I'm away on travel to drink a glass of wine. I'll give a shot and hope for the best. Thanks for all the input.

That is still not what the Fermentech system is for. It is for making your own wine and instead of bottling it, you put it into the bag. And only for wines that either already have been bulk aged or do not need to age (Mist-types). A "regular" kit or fruit wine needs to age. Boxes don't age well, no micro-oxygenation.

Buy a box-o-wine for the wife. The Bota Box is good wine and it gets 90's in Wine Enthusiast magazine. Those will last a long time after opening.

I'm curious, what would you then recommend for purchasing wine from a place that sells wine from their cask? This would be for direct consumption within a relatively short time. This isn't a kit or a fruit wine and not for aging.

The other option would be to get a 1/2 gallon growler and have them fill it up at the tap. But, like a regular wine bottle, the constant opening and closing and air space is going to oxidize this wine pretty badly, even for the short time. (like going through a regular wine bottle through 3 days x2.5)

Based on this, I'd prefer going for a air resistant bag, or heck, a freezer zip-lockbaggie with a spout, and to keep any new air from going in.

Most of the posts have NOT discussed the original intention, to buy ready to drink wine from a wine seller sans bottle. This is of course putting me at risk with the assumption that "sells fresh wine from their barrels by the liter" is a ready to drink wine.

I think it's pretty common in Portugal and Italy. I'm unsure about other countries, and I rarely travel to Europe.

The trick was that I saw his location as Italia and checked his profile to figure that he was in Italy where they actually have these sorts of things. Only then did the question make sense to me.

I was thinking like this Fill ‘Er Up at the Wine Station | For 91 Days in Palermo – Travel Blog Or perhaps without the fancy nozzle and they measure some other way. Similar to the way a person might buy fresh orange juice.

THe closest thing we have in the US that I've seen is this: http://www.enomatic.it/new/default.a...docID=&lan=ENG (I love getting a few glasses of wine this way at a certain grocery store, if they still have it.)

Rather than a solid container like the video shows, I would actually think that a bag method might be easier and keep oxygen out in comparison to a hard container since once filled, you can squeeze out the oxygen to leave it just liquid in the bag. Alternatively, since it was mentioned that they have barrels customized for bags of wine already.... I wonder if those could be somehow refillable?
