12 Days of Wine Bags, Day 10

default-image

Today's wine bag (10 of 12) is the Rolls Royce of the whole bunch. It's luxurious, classic, well-fashioned, a little boxy and incredibly pricey. Did I mention that it comes with a wool picnic blanket? Certainly not for the novice wine-lover, this tote is designed with the ultimate connoisseur in mind. Handmade by designer Tyler Mckenzie at Teal and Gold Workshop (through a process that takes 20-some hours to complete) these Bent Walnut Picnic Wine Totes are made to order. Odds are if you order one today, it won't make it for the December 25th deadline that so many are operating under these days. But I say, wrap up an equally exquisite bottle of wine—like the rich, driven 2006 Numanthia from Spain's Toro region ($57, find this wine)—and print out a photo of the walnut wine tote goodness that's to come. The person you bestow with this one-of-a-kind gift will be delighted and will have a nice surprise some time in January.
