We’ve all been there: you’re at a party, and you have some wine, but you really don’t want to share it. Or, perhaps you’re at a chill picnic, and you want to imbibe just a bit without raising any eyebrows. (Hey, I’m not judging your lifestyle.)
If you’re looking for an extremely discreet way to sip on your wine while simultaneously hauling around your stuff, then there is a miraculous purse here to change the way you secretly drink alcohol! (Again, live your life however you want, I’m not casting any aspersions!!!)
The PortoVino wine purse from Bella Vita kind of just looks like your basic, tasteful tote bag.
But, there’s a boozy catch: inside the purse, there is an insulated pouch designed to hold up to two bottles of wine.
The back of the purse has a small, discreet flap, which allows you to dispense the wine …
… via a small spout, directly into a glass. (Or your mouth, or your bathtub, or whatever. NO JUDGEMENT.)
Marisa China, the co-owner of Bella Vita, tells Metro UK, “We had previously seen a basic bag that had more of a cooler-like quality with inside insulation and a pouring spout. A carrier with a pouring spout was a good idea, but I envisioned a fashion purse that could be taken anywhere that needed to look beautiful both inside and outside – and have the added bonus of carrying two bottles of wine.”
China adds that the purse is geared more towards parties and group functions, not for daily use. “This is a social accessory to be shared with friends, so one bottle wasn’t enough and boxed wine would be too large and heavy.”
Which makes sense: hauling wine around can be annoying, so it’s nice to have an accessory that can carry everything you need, while also seamlessly dispensing your party wine.
That said, please carry the bag responsibly — even though you may want a glass of wine after a long meeting, don’t crack open this purse in your cubicle. Save that sh*t for at-home unwinding, girl.
