Jug Wine

In the USA, especially in California, a common term ( jug) for a simple consumer wine. After Prohibition was lifted in 1933, such bulk wines were bottled in jugs with screw tops, i.e. bottles with a volume of 1.5 to 4 litres. Today, however, the term is rarely used and has been replaced by other terms such as Bag-in-Box-Wines or Fighting Varietals. See also under Branded wine and Value brands.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
