Wines | Goon (Box Wine) Reviews

I think we can all admit that goon is the most quintessentially Australian drink. Goon is the beverage equivalent of The Castle. However, not all goon is good. Luckily for you, we here at the Good Goon Guide have done the hard yards for you – our goon (box wine) reviews take into account appearance, taste, goon to mixer ratio and most importantly price, so you can enjoy a delicious goon at the right price.

Try them out and leave a review while you’re at it!

If you would like to send us suggestions on a new goon to review, send them through to goodgoonguide@gmail.com or if you want to learn some recipes for your goon they can be found here!

Enjoy!
