Introducing the wine handbag


A woman's handbag covers all manner of necessities, from tablets to Kirby grips and a cheeky bar of Green & Black's.

But it's harder to accommodate a bottle of Pinot Noir in your favourite tote or carryall and that's where these award-winning creations from Vernissage come in.

Proving true the adage that necessity is the mother invention, they've produced a series of nifty handbags that hold 1.5 litres of red, white or rose wine from the Pays d'Oc region of France.

Instead of deciding between pattern and buckle detail, customers get to choose whether they prefer a spicy Cabernet Sauvignon, a Chardonnay with hints of apple and citrus or a Rosé with herby undertones.

While perhaps not appropriate for office use, these covetable designs are the perfect must-have accessory for the summer picnic season.

Order yours for £25.99 at The Exceptional Wine Company.
