Between hellish commutes, annoying coworkers, manic bosses, managing bills, and just the overall workings of being a mature adult, sometimes you just need a break.

Sometimes you just need to tune it all out with a glass of wine at the end of the day.

While it's not exactly the healthiest way to deal with the stresses of life, there are days when it's a near-necessity to walk in the front door and seek out the nearest bottle of wine.

You tell yourself it's all about the dinner pairing, right?

Hey, that works as long as your not drinking crap.

Luckily for you, we set our inner wine snob free and compiled a list of five wines you should never drink -- ever -- to steer you in the right direction.

Although we might derail your afterwork plans, you'll thank us in the long-run, hopefully.

5. Box O' Wine

Look, we've heard that some winemakers are making boxed wines that are supposedly decent enough to sip, but we have yet to personally experience drinkable boxed wine. A favorite drink of broke sorority girls and backpackers across the world, the only reason anyone drinks the bag is because it's as cheap as shit. Sure, it's a more environmentally friendly way of packaging wine; and yes, it does prevent oxidation, which is a good thing, but it's all mass produced crap that tastes like a combination of lighter fluid and grape-juice. Seriously. Do yourself a favor and stick to Two Buck Chuck instead.

As I was told many years ago: "If you serve white zinfandel at your wedding, only the sluts will drink it."

I'm guilty of enjoying a good IB wedge with blue cheese, tomatoes and bacon. But that's the only time. I prefer mâche rosettes, baby chard, baby arugula, & radicchio just in case you're shopping for gifts.
