I work in a wine store and we sold 30 gallons of Carlo Rossi to a fraternity for a party a few months back. Well, I guess they didn't have a recycling dumpster at their house so they decided to dump them in our dumpster about a week later. I pulled 20 jugs outta the recycling dumpster--more than I'll ever need.

I go the cider route, myself. That way the kids can help me empty the jugs. (Actually, last time around I fermented the cider...) I'd rather drink apple juice than Rossi wine.

Were it not for Carlo Rossi jugs there would have been no mead brewing and thus no CreamyGoodness on this site. Make of that what you will.
