Sometimes, humanity does great things. Building the Seven Wonders of the World? What a great thing! Figuring out a way to walk on the moon? Yet another great thing. Creating the Internet? Yep, you guessed it...great, great, great.
But what is humanity’s latest and greatest invention? Well, we’ll tell you in three simple words.
The. Wine. Bag.
Intrigued? So were we. Allow us to explain to you what a wine bag is, in plain terms: A wine bag is a type of purse that allows you to discreetly carry a bottle (or two) of wine in your purse while maintaining the ruse that it’s a regular purse. These handy bags have a retractable pour spout that allows you to pour yourself a glass on-the-go.
But wait, there’s more! Here are some various styles as well as more fun facts about your new favorite accessory, aka the wine purse.
For the oenophile who has everything, PortoVino's Paris Cream Bundle comes with easy-to-use refillable BPA-free beverage pouches, as well as two wine glasses made of party-friendly silicone. It can hold two bottles of wine (or 1.5 liters of your favorite beverage).
For the hiker who can't get enough adult grape juice on the trail, there's the PortoVino DayPack. This polyester backpack features a flap on the back to hide the spout. Not only does it hold a couple bottles of booze, but it's roomy enough to hold some essentials as well.
Your Friends Will Be Jealous of You
It goes without saying, but…purses that can carry wine way triumph over purses that cannot carry wine. Bring this baby out for your next girls night, and you’ll be the talk of the town! Or, at least, the talk of the table. For extra points, buy your girls their very own wine bags. Hey, nothing wrong with having more wine around, right?!
Be One With the Earth
PortoVino Wine Purses are made out of vegan leather! So you can drink your wine and rest assured that you’re, like, totally saving the planet, one bag at a time.
This Bag is Actually Still Functional as a Bag
In case there’s ever an event or occasion where wine is not allowed, don’t worry! Your wine bag will still function as a regular bag. The wine pouch can be removed to fit personal pieces of equipment as big as a laptop or an iPad, and there are plenty of pockets for little accessories like lip gloss, mints, or contact solution. But, like, we’d just recommend trying to avoid events/occasions where wine isn’t allowed, kay? Kay.
A Wine Bag Allows You to Be Sneaky and Imbibe on Multiple Occasions
The cool thing about a wine bag is that nobody expects it. If you carry a purse with you, nobody in their right minds would ever think that it carries two bottles of wine. But guess what? It does! All this means is that you have more chances to drink wine when one is not expected to have wine. Parent teacher conferences? Sure. Divorce proceedings? Why not! No one will ever know…
It Fits Two Whole Bottles of Wine
Two. Whole. Bottles. Of. Wine.
Need we say more?! This is the perfect amount for you to split with a fellow wine lover, or a few wine lovers, depending on the occasion. You can even get creative here and throw in some sangria. Options, people…we have options!
Different Colors and Styles Allow You to Accessorize
One of the things that we love about purses is the ability to switch them out and accessorize with different outfits. Luckily, wine bags come in all different styles and colors so you can also accomplish this fashion prowess while still being able to tote around your favorite vino. Sweet, sweet victory!
The Wine Bag Keeps Your Wine Chilled
The pouch inside your wine bag is actually an insulated pocket, which means that you can keep your wine chilled. That’s right, no more drinking warm rose at the beach. Instead, you can sip your delectable vino chilled, which is how it’s supposed to be. There’s no better way to beat a hot and sunny day, in our opinion!
Drinks are expensive when you’re not drinking at home. But who wants to stay home all the time? Bringing a wine purse out with you is a great way to save a little green when you’re out and about and wanting a little something-something to drink. The little hidden spigot is easily accessible, which basically means that you can enjoy your glass of wine anywhere.
Hop into a bathroom stall, duck behind a tree, or hide under the bleachers and guzzle up that good nectar! You’ll find your wallet flush with extra cash when you realize that you’re no longer paying for overpriced drinks at the bar.
So basically, we’re obsessed AF with wine bags. You may find us using ours at the beach, on a picnic, at our kids’ soccer games, mid-flight, at the grocery store…oh, basically, at all times. Wine not, right?!
