Wine in a Purse
How cute is this box. Oenophiles should be happy to know that Vernissage Wine is pumping French wine from Vin de Pays d’Oc into its airtight bags. There’s a Chardonnay Viognier (in a white bag), a Cabernet Shiraz (black), and a Rose (pink, of course). A 1.5-liter purse will run customers about $20. The 3-liter bag will cost about $40.
And yet there’s a silver (purse) lining to all the cardboard and plastic: bags are said to be better than glass for preserving wine. When a glass bottle is uncorked, air rushes in and starts to oxidize the wine, and distort the flavor. The bag-in-box tech forces the wine out of the tap while only allowing in only a dash of oxygen. so it keeps longer — even up to a few weeks.
I’m just wondering when they’ll make a Chloe version?
The Bag-in-Bag wine Vernissage has taken both wine-lovers and the press by storm, in Sweden as well as internationally. Behind the success are Sofia Blomberg, the creator of the unique packaging design, and Takis Soldatos, the creator of the packaging´s contents. The results are elegant design, and a characteristically typical mixture of French Chardonnay and Viognier produced in one of Northern Europe´s most modern wineries, Nordic Sea Winery in Simrishamn.
