    Australian winemaker Thomas Angove, inventor of boxed wine, passed away yesterday at the age of 92.

    Nearly 45 years after his first prototype, boxed wine has become a popular drinking for those looking for decent wine at a reasonable price.

    His son John Angove has taken over the business now, but wasn't too sold on the boxed wine concept in the beginning, "that's ridiculous, nobody is going to buy wine out of a cardboard box and a plastic bag."

    A sad day for winos everywhere, pour one out for Thomas Angove, folks.

    I'm not going to make the obvious joke.

    Obvious joke being that the OP is so hammered on boxed whine that she made a typo in the headline. or the other obvious joke?

    I dunno, I think boxed "win" is quite appropriate
