Well, now. What have we here? It’s a handbag! It’s a box of wine! It’s BOTH! Just in time for that fancy picnic down by the river, you can BYOBOW in a discreet, yet fashionable manner with the “bag-in-a-bag” of wine by Vernissage.
Vernissage is trying to revamp boxed wine to attract a more sophisticated customer!
Elliot Stern, CEO of Squish Wines, is in charge of importing the bags, which originate in Sweden, into the U.S. He says it’s a “whole new concept of design” meant to appeal to a classy lady heading out to lunch with the girls or dinner with her significant other.
I’m just going to let that sink it for a moment. Can you imagine going on a date with your significant other with a box of wine purse? I’m trying to figure out just how this would work. Would this sophisticated gal sneak her wineglass under the table and top-off during her elegant meal? Or would she simply put her mouth onto the spout and slurp?
Happy Hour, indeed.
I suppose it would be easier for me to understand if we were discussing a vodka-purse. Because then, I’d simply brink my elegant handbag to Sonic (with their Ultimate Drink Stop®) and dump it into my Cranberry Lime-aid Slush.
Excuse me while I contact my patent attorney.
Happy Labor Day!!
