Keep Your Cool with Wine and Champagne

Clear Chill It Bag: keeps your Chard and Champagne cool

We've tried many a wine carrier and cooler for picnics, parties and other situations where you'd show up with a bottle or two. This new product caught our attention with its playful design. Chill It bags from Bella Vita fit your Chablis or Chardonnay as well as most Champagnes — or that homemade limoncello that needs to stay iced on the way to your friends' garden party. The freezable bags are 4 x 12 inches and are filled with a nontoxic cooling agent to keep your beverages chilled. The see-through design means you won't be able to sneak it into an open-air concert venue, but the clear plastic also makes them look so "cool." Available in six colors.
