“It’s no longer called ‘box wine’—the classy term is ‘Cardboardeaux‘“

"Cardboardeaux” or “Cardbordeaux” (cardboard + Bordeaux wine) is a jocular name for a box wine. “It’s no longer called ‘box wine’—the classy term is ‘Cardboardeaux’” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as ecards and T-shirts.

Both “ Chateau du Cardboardeaux” and “Chateau du Cardbordeaux” were cited in print in 2001. “Cardbordeaux” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on October 8, 2006. “Cardboardeaux” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on August 23, 2012.


Wikipedia: Box wine
A box wine (or boxed wine, goon, goon bag, cask wine) is a wine packaged as a bag-in-box. Such packages contain a plastic bladder protected by a box, usually made of corrugated fiberboard.

Wikipedia: Bordeaux wine
A Bordeaux wine is any wine produced in the Bordeaux region of France, centred on the city of Bordeaux and covering the whole area of the Gironde department, with a total vineyard area of over 120,000 hectares, making it the largest wine growing area in France. Average vintages produce over 700 million bottles of Bordeaux wine, ranging from large quantities of everyday table wine, to some of the most expensive and prestigious wines in the world. Eighty-nine percent of wine produced in Bordeaux is red (called “claret” in Britain), with sweet white wines (most notably Sauternes), dry whites, and also (in much smaller quantities) rosé and sparkling wines (Crémant de Bordeaux) collectively making up the remainder.

Well, in Australia they refer to what they call ‘cask’ wine, as Australia did invent it and export it to the world, ‘Chateau du Cardbordeaux’ Personally, I think it is a magnificent name like so many things the crazy fun loving Aussies dream up.

Urban Dictionary
Cardbordeaux
Cardbordeaux is wine that is packaged in a collapsable (usually plastic) bladder with a tap inside a cardboard box. Sneered on by oenophiles but happily consumed by those such as middle-class housewives who were beer-drinkers in college. And possible Boone’s Farm drinkers in high school. But it’s not as sweet.

Popular brands are Franzia, Peter Vella and Almaden. Reportedly the most popular variety (according to Papa Joe’s Discount Liquors in Richmond, Indiana) is Franzia Sunset Blush.

A daily cartoon carried in many US newspapers is “Pluggers” - just plain folk “pluggin” away in life. A recent cartoon showed a plugger sampling his favorite box wine ... cardboardeaux.
