Fine Wine Storage

vinnebago-promo

Since the dawn of modern yachting, sailors have struggled with how best to store and serve fine wines aboard a small sailboat. A leather Bota of Chianti, anyone? But now there’s the Vinnebago, a super-efficient thermos that can hold a full bottle and keep your favorite Chardonnay nice and cold for up to 25 hours. (It can also keep drinks hot, if you’re into that kind of thing.) The key to the Vinnebago is a proprietary third layer of insulation, as opposed to the traditional two-layer approach, which makes it much more effective. Available in white, black or stainless steel, the Vinnebago also features a tapered top that is big enough for putting in ice cubes, but “not so big that it is difficult to drink directly out of either.” We like the way these people think!

$29.
