Which wines, preferably boxed, are sold at 7-11 and about how much are they?

I do, but I'm temporarily disabled, so I'm stuck with 7-11.  I saw a Youtube video that suggests that they have bottled Peter Vella, which is reasonably drinkable.  

 

Anyone else seen it there?

Except you are paying at least 3 times the Aussie price. AFAIK 7/11's don't sell cask wines.

Mate, looking at around 650 baht for a bottle of JC at 7/11.

When you need a red wine well that is what you do. enjoy it fella

Yes, Peter Vella in a 750 ml bottle (A label from Gallo Winery of Modesto, CA), is available from time to time in various 7s, at least in Chonburi Province.

 

It is readily available at Central Supermarkets, and at some Big C Extra outlets when you can get around. It comes in boxes as well, and is quite drinkable. A good nose, delicate on the palate and a versatile accompanyment to many dishes.

 

Best wishes on your recovery.

Peter Vella is just about drinkable as a basic table wine.

I seem to recall ordering wine through Tesco home delivery a while ago, but they only deliver during 'official' hours.

Do you mean Tops?

 

the last time I was in Tops up here they had stopped selling Peter Vella and weren’t getting any more - so said the lady in charge of that aisle.

The Jacobs Creek classic (white) and the Jacobs Creek unoaked Chardonnay are very drinkable, particularly the latter, and we buy them VERY regularly. Yes they are overpriced but isn't all wine in Thailand.
