If you drink your wine on a budget, there's a good chance that you've met our good friend goon.

Goon, for those unfamiliar with the trusty drinking companion, is the nickname for cheap $5 boxed wine. 


Basically, the thing we all drink when our wallet is crying.

It's not secret that goon doesn't taste as good as the much more expensive wine you see, but we now know how to transform your $5 grape juice into $500 Grange.

All you need is a blender.


According to Dan Murphy's, aerating is what makes wine taste great.

It “helps release its optimum aromas and flavours” and is usually done by either swirling your wine around in the glass, or passing it through an aerator.

As it turns out, your blender can become a pretty decent aerator when necessary.


Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-hour Work Week, says that only 20 to 30 seconds in your blender is enough time to age your wine four or five years. 

As soon as you see a nice froth at the top of your wine, let it fall before pouring it into your glass and get ready to feel fancy AF.


Looks like we'll be using our blender for more than just smoothies from now on.
