Ask Whit: Wine on the Go

by whitney on July 29, 2012

We’ve got a wine on the move/easy access/incognito kinda question today! Let’s do this.

Q: “I’m going for a sunset hike with my boyfriend and really want to bring some wine along for a treat at the finish line, but I don’t want to add that much more weight to my backpack or deal with the empty once we finish. Ideas? – Marisa, LA”

A: Yes, this is a wine water bottle. I happen to be obsessed with this wine water bottle. It’s from Vapur and looks pretty great- it’s from the “Runway” series after all. This thing is reusable, flexible, lightweight, BPA free and attachable! You can also freeze water in it and turn it into an ice pack. But that’s a different Ask Whit. Anyway, this will be your wine carrying vessel. Hell, it even has a carabiner so it’s totes hiking material. Don’t judge me based on that last sentence. It holds 18 oz of liquid, so a little more than 2/3 of a bottle of wine.

*Also, and I’m totally not recommending this at all, but maybe you could take this for some sipping on a train, bus, subway or other public transportation? Or perhaps the movies. Or an outdoor concert. Or WHEREVER.

PS- You’ll need to get friendly with a funnel for this to not get real messy.

PPS- I think I’m just gonna go ahead and call this a Capri Sun for adults.

My gentleman friend has something similar to this, except that it’s transparent and doesn’t have a carabiner. I’ve been making fun of him for it, calling it his travel bladder and whatnot, but I never thought about transporting adult type beverages in it! Fantastic idea, but I wish his had a pretty pattern like yours.

We go camping a lot and use something similar called the Platypus Preserve. It holds a full bottle of wine and allows you to get all the air out so the wine will not oxidize. You can get them from Amazon.
