Visualize this scene: Sunny. Warm. Wiggling your feet in the sand at the beach, luxuriating in the fact that that you’re also smoothing away the bottoms of your tootsies — and it’s getting to be 5 o’clock — somewhere. And, you’re about to break out just the right accessories to enjoy your favorite wine.
Now, what about keeping wine chilled during travel? There’s an artistic solution for that with one of these portable chillers from Vacu Vin. This one comes with a whimsical work from the popular, contemporary artist, Guy Buffet.

Ah, a glass of wine and a breath of fresh air!
