Du Vino Wine Purse Tote
Now, this is a wine bottle carrier that’s after our own heart’s desire. The truth is that when transporting a bottle of wine to enjoy, it’s the wine you actually want, not the bottle. But the bottle is what makes things so tricky. The bottles are heavy, awkward, and made of glass. So the people at Du Vino have flipped this on its head and created a Wine Purse Tote that lets you get rid of the bottle altogether. Simply decant up to four bottles of your favorite wine into a disposable bag, insert into the tote and enjoy your drink straight from the handy stop/start spout. Alternatively, you can also insert the inner bladder of any bag in a box wine, and enjoy on the go.
This functional and fun design is made of thick but lightweight neoprene, which makes it machine washable, insulated, and comfortable to carry around. The adjustable shoulder strap even means that you can keep your hands free for going about your day as usual. If you want to keep your wine as cold as possible, then there is room for an ice pack, and the flat bottom of the bag means that you can easily set it down on any surface.
- Ditch the bottle
- Machine washable
- Fits up to 4 bottles
- Can’t be used with bottles
All of these great products make carrying your favorite wine around much more comfortable, but it is clear to see that one of them makes this task a piece of cake and makes it fun at the same time. The Du Vino Wine Purse Tote is our favorite of the bunch; we love the idea of being able to ditch the bottle altogether and take only the good stuff on the go. With easy pouring, a comfortable shoulder strap and insulation, you can wear this bag all day without really thinking about it and can take it anywhere you go. For a reasonable price, we think you’ll never look back.
