Unlike smaller insulated bottles, they hold exactly one bottle of wine and promise to keep it cool for up to 24 hours – au revoir, warm pinot grigio dregs.
The sleek design fits easily into any mid-size bag, and the insulated walls mean there’ll be no condensation to dampen the picnic blanket you’ve also got stashed in your tote.
