Wine just ruined my wardrobe!

March 27, 2010

Lots of wine related products out there. Some accentuate the wine-drinking experience. Some are mere decor to impress your friends and drinking buddies. On occasion you come across a simple idea the makes sense. It works when you need it, and becomes really obvious when you need it but don’t have it. Bringing back a few bottles from your trip to Napa? Heartbroken that some of those bottles didn’t make it back? Worse, you packed them along with your wife’s favorite outfits. The dog house for you, unless…

“The Wine Diaper,” it’s a biodegradable travel bag for wine lined with absorbent material. It helps protect your wine in travel, but if breakage does occur, the absorbent material will absorb up the entire contents of your bottle, keeping your clothing and valuables from being ruined. Compact, lightweight, inexpensive–and reusable, if no breakage occurs, the Wine Diaper is the perfect travel accessory for anyone traveling with wine or any liquid breakables.

The Wine Diaper retails for about $13.99 for 3 with wholesale pricing available for the retailers.

Succulent texture and supple tannins extend throughout the palate, and red liquorice flavors provide a long, distinctive finish.
