‘Wine Purse’ Beach Bags Are Here For Summer

It's insulated, holds two bottles of wine and has a discreet spout for easy pouring!

Summer and wine go together like peanut butter and jelly. If you’re like me, and you prefer to have easy access to a steady stream of rose as you jet from backyard BBQs to beach parties to picnic dates, then you need a convenient way to tote your wine around with you. Enter the summer wine purse.

BellaVita has created a beach tote that easily holds up to two entire bottles of wine. The original came in a leather-like material and was so popular that it sold out almost immediately and created a major backlog. The company has since ramped up production, and they just debuted a new product with a summer makeover just in time for patio season. Check out the PortoVino Beach Tote, a canvas bag that will fit in at the beach, the pool or wherever your summer plans take you.

So how exactly does this genius invention work? You just pour your vino of choice into a refillable pouch and store it in a zippered, insulated pocket within the bag. If you need to be discreet, that’s no problem. There is a flap on the side of the bag, and when you open it, voila, there’s a spout to pour yourself a glass! There’s also a large main compartment to hold the rest of your summer essentials like sunscreen, bug spray and your swimsuit. Could this get any easier?!

The stylish and practical bag retails for $39.95 and is available for pre-order now. Expected ship date is mid-June, just in time for all your summer parties.

If you’re looking to really up your summer wine game, you also need these genius wine glasses that stick in the sand and float in the pool, available at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $10 each.

If the styles from BellaVita don’t tickle your fancy, check out this competitor from Uncommon Goods. While similar in design, this one is much pricier. It retails for $129.95. But no matter your budget, one thing’s for sure—this summer, your motto will be, “Have wine, will travel!”
