What is the one accessory that the lady about town cannot afford to be without?
A pair of flatties, a set of hair curlers, a Fez? Shisha pipe?
It is a stylish handbag, of course. One that doubles up as a wine box.
Like a mobile phone, once you've experienced a Vernissage handbag-winebox you will wonder how you ever got through life without it.
The Vernissage wine box in a handbag is perfect for a sly tipple while in some of the city's more expensive bars, but you can take it anywhere: picnics, bike rides, the train, on the school run, around the shops, on hospital visits...
The Exceptional Wine Company is a not for profit company specialising in little known Portuguese table wines. MD Carolyn Butler says: “When we read about Wine in a Handbag I couldn't resist importing them and we are now the sole importer in the UK.”
The designers have also been clever enough to ensure that what is in the handbag is just as pleasing as the packaging. The wines are from Languedoc-Roussillon and are fresh, fruity and easy to drink. Each handbag contains 1.5 litres yet are neat and easy to carry.
Already Liverpool Confidential has taken the wine handbag out on field testing exercises - to gallery private views and press launches, to gigs, pubs and obviously to the office.
The Vernissage wine box in a bag is available exclusively in the UK from the Exceptional Wine Company for £24.99, but Liverpool Confidential has three sitting here, ready to give away.
Choose from a pretty pink rose, a deep and sophisticated syrah cabernet sauvignon or a refreshing chardonnay/voignier
